Considering that Israel probably has more journalists per square meter than anywhere else on the planet, there are sure a lot of stories that don't get covered - even in the most contentious part, Area C of Judea and Samaria (West Bank.)

From COGAT:
The Civil Administration is committed to the development of the transport sector in Judea and Samaria, as transport connectivity encourages economic growth.

In 2011, the Civil Administration facilitated 22 USAID-funded road rehabilitation projects in Area C for the benefit of all communities in the region. The projects were made possible by funding from the international community (such as USAID), the close collaboration between NGO contractors and the Civil Administration and internal coordination between Civil Administration departments.

It is the Civil Administration's mission to continue facilitating transport projects in Judea and Samaria. In 2011 the Civil Administration received an unprecedented number
of road rehabilitation project applications for Area C. Each rehabilitation project requires input from a number of different Civil Administration departments. In 2011 the Civil Administration processed and approved over 95% of all road rehabilitation and construction applications submitted.
Here's a list of projects completed in 2011.
 Brukin Road near Kfar Kode – Finished July 2011
 Jayyus Road near Kafriat – Finished September 2011
 Rujeib Road near M'saken Aba – Finished July 2011
 Beit Furik Road near Beit Dajan – Finished July 2011
 Deir al Hatab Road – Finished July 2011
 Salam Road – Finished July 2011
 Road entering Nablus from Hawara checkpoint – Finished June 2011
 Birzeit Road near Jifna-Jalazun – Finished February 2011
 Taybeh Road near Deir D'buan – Finished April 2011
 Abud Road – Finished April 2011
 Deir Jarir Silwad Road – Finished September 2011
 Jaba-Qalandiyah Road – Finished July 2011
 Beit Sah'or Road – Finished May 2011
 Tekoa Road – Finished May 2011
 Za'atra Road – Finished May 2011
 Ein Arik Road near Bitunia – Finished 2011
Not a Hebrew name among them (except for Tekoa.) These are almost all roads meant to help the Arabs of Area C travel.

How could the New York Times and AP, not to mention 972Mag and Mondoweiss, have missed this story in an area they pretend to cover to exhaustively?

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 12 years and over 25,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
