Subject: RE: BS: New Israeli atrocity: attack on Gaza aid
Emma, I was surprised and disappointed, but it did look like editing for a purpose.
You gave us an extract. Perfectly reasonable.
But, you deleted the one short sentence that referred to Hamas' initial refusal to let in any of the aid.
And that short sentence was in the middle.

I am sorry if I missed the scooter refs. but I have never heard such vehicles described as wheelchairs before.
I am sure I was not the only one deceived by that.

I have also never heard of such vehicles forming part of an aid shipment either.
And there were hundreds of them!

They are worth hundreds each.
Cement is cheap, Tamiflu worthless, but hundreds of mobility scooters?
