The news wires are carrying stories of how Israeli soldiers beat two members
of an Egyptian television crew near the West Bank Kalandia refugee camp.
Tarek Abdel Gaber and Abdel Nasr Ebdon were assaulted by the soldiers, on
Monday, August 13th. These courageous journalists were not the first
journalists assaulted by the Israeli occupation army. The only foreign
journalists safe from Israeli wrath are the ones who stay clear from the
occupied territories or the ones that are leased to do public relations work
for the IDF. Please revisit one of our earlier articles on this deliberate
policy to intimidate the international press. (Believe it or not, Ariel
Sharon is a war criminal).
