April Is By No Means the Cruelest Month. It Is, Alas, a Typical One

Thanks to Leo Rennert on the American Thinker site for compiling a list--it is not comprehensive--of events that the NYT and the WaPo, rabid fans of the Palestinian narrative, chose to ignore in the month now ending:
April 1-Hamas official urges Palestinian women to blow themselves up "for the sake of Jerusalem."
April 2-PA arrests woman for criticizing Abbas on Facebook, cracks down on journalists.
April 3-Palestinian revisionism - Moses was a Muslim who led Muslims in exodus from Egypt.
April 3-Medieval blood libel of Jews gaining in popularity in Jordan.
April 4-Rocket explosions in Eilat - one rocket hits near apartment building.
April 5-Arab League boycotts Adidas for sponsoring Jerusalem marathon.
April 8-Two rockets fired from Gaza explode in southern Israel.
April 9-Muslims reject shared prayer areas at Tomb of Patriarchs, aim for exclusive use.

April 24-Abbas blocks websites that criticize him.

File the above under "sins of omission." (For further reading on these papers' past history of sinful avoidance of an existential crisis involving Jewry, please locate a copy of Deborah Lipstadt's Beyond Belief: The American Press and the Coming of the Holocaust, 1933-1945.)
