The two main stories.
One, from the IDF blog, illustrates
How Hamas and Islamic Jihad Use Journalism as a Cover for Terrorism
A second, at Algemeiner, explains that
BBC Staffer Who Lost Child During Israel-Hamas Conflict Blames “Jews,” Tied to Hamas
Will it be reported in the mainstream media themselves? At the NYTimes media blog, the BBC, et al.?
Here are the questions the IDF Spokesman's Office asks:
Should a senior Islamic Jihad commander who paints “TV” on his car be considered a journalist?
Should a cameraman for a Hamas-owned and operated television network be considered a journalist?
Should a radio show host who wears the uniform of a terrorist group be considered a journalist?
If “yes” is the answer to these three questions — if the clear line between terrorists and journalists is blurred and there is no standard for the definition of “journalist” — it is likely that Palestinian terrorists will continue using journalism as a cover for terrorism.
What do you think the reply will be?
