AP: Your bias is showing

The lead paragraph of an AP story today:
CAIRO -- A suspected Israeli airstrike against a weapons factory in Khartoum last week points to a possible escalation in a hidden front of the rivalry between Israel and Iran: The arms pipeline through Sudan to Islamists on Israel's borders.
So the airstrike, for which no explanation other than an Israeli attack has ever been offered, and which even the article says that "consensus has built among Israeli and Arab military analysts" that it was done by Israel, is just "suspected." But the existence of an "arms pipeline through Sudan to Islamists on Israel's borders," for which no evidence is given other than that "Israel has long contended that Iran uses the route to supply Hamas," is stated as simple fact.
