Palestinian Arab media still blames Israel for Vittorio Arrigoni's death

It has been a year since Vittorio Arrigoni, Israel-hater and terror supporter, was murdered by an Islamic group in Gaza.

At the time, the usual anti-Israel crowd was quick to blame Israel for the kidnapping and murder. However, Hamas identified members of a Salafist group that took credit for the kidnapping and killed a number of them in a shootout.

Yet today, Palestinian Arab media is still blaming Israel for the murder - and this includes the "moderate" media.

Both the Fatah-leaning Palestine Press Agency and the independent Ma'an News Agency are reporting today that the group that killed Arrigoni was "working for the occupation."

Any resemblance between Palestinian Arabic media reporting and the truth is purely coincidental.
