Reuters in a time warp; repeats the Big Lie

In a story about the latest "aid" ship to head for Gaza -- financed by Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi's son -- Reuters is still characterizing the Strip as "blockaded".  This despite the fact that all manner of goods other than weapons and war materiel are moving freely across the Israel-Gaza border.

More appalling, is Reuters continued reliance on the Big Lie:
The United Nations says the blockade has led to a humanitarian crisis for the territory's 1.5 million people, of whom about 1 million depend to some extent on regular supplies of U.N. and other foreign aid brought in overland after Israeli inspection.
The United Nations has absolutely not asserted that there is a "humanitarian crisis" in Gaza; indeed, it has stated just the opposite.

Perhaps the people of Israel should consider filing suit against Reuters for damages associated with the agency's unremitting blood libels.
