The article.”Palestinians turn to technology to avoid roadblocks”http://www.jpost. com/MiddleEast/Article.aspx? id=210093, written by ARIEH O’SULLIVAN

of the THE MEDIA LINE, trivializes the importance of check points as a vital way for the IDF to determine if armed Palestinians plan to infiltrate Israeli cities.

MEDIALINE buys the line of the enemy which that only Israel which “says that checkpoins are needed to thwart the movement of terrorists”, while MEDIALINE accepts the notion that checkpoints “are a thorn in the side to ordinary Palestinians” and gives surprising credence to the notion of the International Monetary Fund “which calls the checkpoints the biggest obstacle to putting the economy of the region back on its feet after the so-called Second Intifada.”

So-called Intifada? 1478 people murdered in cold blood is a “so-called intifada”?

The unkindest cut of all is the tone of the article, which glorifies Palestinians who use modern ways to circumvent checkpoints, supposedly to advance their economy.

Does MEDIALINE not understand that it has just played a role in assisting those who may want to find new ways to infiltrate Israel to kill Jews?
