News ::
Palestinians go on lynch spree while the AP tries to hide the pictures (english)
10 Dec 2002
Fight for human rights for EVREYONE!! (article 3)
With all the pictures AP sends out throughout the world showing the events of The Oslo War, you might see something besides the "plight of the poor Palestinians" ... and then again, maybe you wouldn't.

While we do not know the political beliefs of their journalists, we do know that most of the pictures coming from Israel are taken by Arabs. Don't believe us? Just go to: Yahoo News Page and do a search for news photos, using some key words like: Israel, Ramallah, Gaza, etc. and see for yourself!

Even taking in account political beliefs, you would think that a journalist must take pictures of "hot stories" - no matter what, right?

Well, how about a story of the "collaborator" hung up in central Ramallah just a few months ago? True - the two pictures that they did take got into the press - but, for some reason, AP has deleted them from their photo database ...

Well then, how about the story of the two "collaborators" that were killed, mutilated, and then dragged through the streets of biblical Bethlehem and layed out in Manger Square. Well - there also were two pictures.

We have heard the story before ... AP gave into Arab pressure and threats before, and it goes on all the time.

Maybe we should call this: "The Arab Lynch of the Free Press"?
