So (taking you at YOUR word) Israel didn't do this one, but if they had everything would be hunky-dory.


Peter,
You completely failed to see the point.

Who did it is irrelevant here. AP simply sided with the Palestinian statement ignoring the denial from the IDF (they usually will admit it was their doing if it was indeed an airstrike) ,and even more importantly, disregarding the explosion happened as the terrorist went over a speed bump.

They specifically stated it was an air strike, carelessly omitting "according to the Palestinian police".

That is biased reporting, or horrible editing at best.
