The New York Times reported on Friday that Egypt has refused to send aid through the Rafah crossing while Israel is there, and it has also refused to send the trucks backed up along that border to the Kerem Shalom crossing. This was to show displeasure at Israel's operation in Rafah where they took over the Gazan

The story from the premier US newspaper has not been picked up by other news outlets. So US News, for example, reports it as "both sides blaming each other," even though Egypt didn't deny that it had closed the Rafah crossing from its side.

It's pretty clear that Egypt is the problem here. Israel is pleading with European governments to pressure Egypt to allow aid shipments to resume. 

"The key to preventing a humanitarian crisis in Gaza is now in the hands of our Egyptian friends," Israel's Foreign Affairs Minister Israel Katz said in comments released by his office.

Katz said he had spoken with his British and German counterparts about "the need to persuade Egypt to reopen the Rafah crossing", adding he would also speak with Italy's foreign minister later on Tuesday.

The Palestinian militant group Hamas, which has governed Gaza, will not "control the Rafah crossing", Katz said, citing security concerns over which Israel "will not compromise".

The comments drew a swift and angry response from Egypt's foreign ministry, which said Israel was responsible for the humanitarian crisis in Gaza and that Israel's military operations in Rafah were the main factor blocking aid.
Egypt has been telling Gazans to go to hell for seven months, building a huge wall to keep Palestinians out and extracting bribes for the rich ones to escape  - and ends up smelling like a rose in the eyes of the media.

But it gets even more Orwellian.

From Egypt's Al Qahera News:

Palestinians (in Ramallah, naturally) are thanking Egypt for starving Gaza! They are "principled!"

The media and NGOs all read the New York Times. They know that Egypt is blocking aid. And they want that story to die so they can resume blaming everything on Israel, which is actually trying to bring in aid (and it is bringing some in through the northern crossings, although not enough for all of Gaza.) 

This one episode shows that it isn't the world being upset at Israel because it cares about Palestinians. The world is pretending to care about Palestinians as an excuse to demonize Israel.
