The Washington Post "reports:" 

With Rafah crossing closed by Israel, Gazans have no way out

Israel’s offensive in Rafah, aimed at eliminating Hamas’s last battalions, has dashed any hope of escape for ill and injured Palestinian civilians.
Exactly when did Israel close the Rafah crossing?

It didn't. Egypt did.

Egypt has told Israel it will not reopen the Rafah border crossing with Gaza while Israeli troops remain on the Gazan side, sources told The National, as the row between the two countries deepens.

“Egypt will not reopen the crossing and that’s its final position despite significant US pressure on Cairo to do so,” one source said.
This was reported widely - by the BBC, Reuters and others over the past month.

That's only the start of how this article bends over backwards to blame Israel for decisions Egypt has made. 

The entire article gives Egypt a pass on not allowing Gazans to take refuge there even though tens of thousands have been trying.  It doesn't mention that thousands of patients have been requested to leave Gaza to go abroad, and Egypt has denied them

So how could the Washington Post get it so wrong?

Because the reporter is an antisemite and a Hamas fan. 

One of the authors of the article, Hajar Harb, posted her support for the Hamas massacre of October 7 in a series of posts on her Facebook page, as CAMERA documented. For example, when the death toll of Israelis reached 600, she made a graphic of flowers making the number 600, writing,  “Although the flowers are a waste on them [the dead Israelis], just the number [of dead] is sweet.” 

Commenting on a photo of 85-year old Yafa Arad being kidnapped into Gaza, Harb wrote: “See this place ma’am? Allah willing, you’ll remain inside with us for a while.”

A photo of  Shir, Ariel and Kfir Bibas being taken by terrorists into Gaza prompted Harb to celebrate: : “[this is] your home and your spot, you and your children.” 

For a picture of Hamas terrorists storming an Israeli home, Ms. Harb wrote: “And this is how we say good morning, seriously.”

The Washington Post knows about Harb's support for Hamas. The Washington Times and the Telegraph (UK) wrote about her  in April. 

It is almost unbelievable that the Washington Post would continue to use Hajar Harb as a reporter after these pro-Hamas posts were publicized. 

Almost, but not completely. Because this is the state of the formerly respectable mainstream media nowadays.
