For anyone who thought that the Palestinian Authority was democratic and had democratic ideals, here is the latest proof that it ain’t so. (But then again, most of those who believe that also refuse to accept facts.)
New York, July 2, 2012–The Committee to Protect Journalists today condemned attacks by Palestinian security forces on at least four journalists who were covering protests against the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah on Saturday and Sunday, according to news reports.
“Palestinian journalists have a right and a duty to document demonstrations,” said CPJ Executive Director Joel Simon. “Authorities are responsible for ensuring that journalists can carry out their work without the threat of assault.”
