We hear horror stories about how demeaning and time consuming it is for Palestinian workers to cross into Israel.
Yet when Israel fixes the problem, the media suddenly loses interest in reporting the story.
10 new SpeedGates were recently installed at the Ephraim Gate (Tulkarem) Crossing. More than 12,000 residents pass through the crossing from the West Bank each day and travelers can already feel a significant improvement in transit conditions and a reduction in travel time. pic.twitter.com/amaKuzsfGA

It is much easier to report the lie that Israel wants to humiliate Palestinians for no reason than to report the reality that Israel wants to make everyone’s lives easier while maintaining its security.
Unfortunately, the lie sells newspapers and helps ratings, while the truth is complicated and messy and doesn’t conform with what so many people want to believe.
So the truth is buried.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
