The AP Wire targets Israel-supporting business owners

Caroline Glick's told all about how the disgusting Associated Press' attack on a Jewish-American businessman who's pro-Israel:
Last week, the Associated Press ran a hit job on a successful American businessman. Simon Falic and his two brothers own the Duty Free Americas chain, a private company that runs duty free stores in airports throughout the United States and Latin America.

They also happen to be Jewish. Simon Falic in particular is a powerful advocate for Jewish causes worldwide and for the State of Israel.

Through their family foundation, Simon Falic and his wife donate to dozens of organizations in Israel. The causes they support run the gamut from medical research to Jewish education. They support synagogue construction and refurbishment; archaeological excavations and preservation of archaeological sites; battered women’s shelters and day care centers; and the construction of new Jewish communities in Israel.

AP’s hit piece centers on Falic’s charitable work.

The title of the article gave the game away. It read, “U.S. duty free owners give millions to settlements.”

The obvious question is: so what? There is nothing even vaguely illegal about Falic’s charitable undertakings. And indeed, the article doesn’t accuse him of committing or facilitating any crime.

Instead, the article’s immediate purpose is to “out” Falic as a Zionist Jew and make his support for Jewish national rights and national self-determination in the Jewish homeland stink of fascism and zealotry.

The AP didn’t even try to hide its purpose. The lead sentence read: “When travelers shop at dozens of duty free stores at airports worldwide, they may be paying for more than a bottle of vodka or a box of chocolates.”
Well it's no shock anymore the AP is such an offensive source when it comes to Israel. And I guess it's no shock they'd employ the particular reporter who concocted such a despicable article:
The AP reporter, Uri Blau, is associated with the radical left in Israel. In the past, Blau worked as an investigative reporter for Israel’s far left-wing newspaper Ha’aretz. In 2008, Blau ran a series of articles about the Israel Defense Force’s operations in Judea and Samaria that were based on top secret documents. He exposed details of operations that were highly damaging to Israeli forces and risked the lives of soldiers and officers involved in the operations.

The IDF opened an investigation into the source of the leaked documents. They discovered that a gossip reporter named Anat Kam, who had recently completed her conscripted military service in the Office of the Commander of Israeli Forces in Judea and Samaria, had copied thousands of classified documents during her military service. Ahead of her release, Kam stole the copied documents from her military base and transferred them to Blau. Kam was charged with, and convicted of, espionage-related offenses, and sentenced to prison time.

Blau received mixed responses from his fellow journalists for his actions. Some, who like Blau are identified with the radical left, upheld him as a paragon of journalistic integrity and courage — a man who got the story out, despite the dangers.

Most Israeli media criticized him for needlessly endangering soldiers and operations while bringing no significant added value to Israelis who didn’t need to know the information he published.

At any rate, now at his new job at the Associated Press, Blau uses his international platform to present the positions of the radical left in Israel as mainstream.

The Israeli government supports the Jewish community in Hebron, one of those Blau singles out for criticism. Most Israelis also see nothing wrong with supporting Israeli communities throughout the country, including in the West Bank. Indeed, polls suggest they support annexing Judea and Samaria.

Given that this is the case, the question is why did Blau write the article and why did the Associated Press publish it?
Easy. It's all part of their anti-Israeli agendas and platforms. For such contempt, Blau should be considered persona non grata in Israel, and should practically be told to pack his bags and move elsewhere.

It is the Palestinian Authority that rules them.

Because demonizing Israel as the occupier galvanizes
