AP's pathetic re-write of the story on the Gaza boy

Basim sent me: "The AP frames their re-write of this story in the context of Hamas trying to win PR points by saying the boy died two days ago (when Egypt cut off fuel), instead of three weeks ago . One would therefore conclude, naturally, the baby died when Egypt DID NOT prevent anything from entering the territory, and is soley the result of Israel's savage destruction of the territory, preventing a normal, regular electrical supply from operating. No such deduction is made. The two Arabs who wrote this story should know better. I put the father's overlooked, uncommented on quote at the very end."
