This past week at the AP was pretty great. Our bureau chief and another writer were putting together this bigger analytical piece on the political fallout from the U.N.'s Gaza report that accuses both Israel and Hamas of war crimes.

There's been a lot of buzz over this report ever since I got here. Though it was originally meant to be a blueprint for holding both sides accountable for whatever atrocities may have been committed, the focus has become Israel's vehement opposition to the report, and how it has widened the rift between moderate and militant Palestinian factions.

I ended up doing a couple interviews that made it in the finished story. I also got to spend a day reporting from Ramallah, and was able to ask the Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad some questions at a press conference - something I never thought I'd be doing at this point.
