The Problem With Relying on Terrorist Sources

PIJ distributed these images showing the preparation of the jeep used in the June 9 attack. The TV and Press signs which were attached before the attack are not shown. (Jerusalem Battalions' Website).

The Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center documents how Palestinian Islamic Jihad deliberately misled about its disguise of a jeep as a press vehicle in the Kissufim crossing attack, and observes:

In the absence of freedom of movement and access to where fighting takes place, to a great extent the Arab and Western media are forced to rely on verbal and visual reporting supplied by the Palestinian terrorist organizations operating in the Gaza Strip. That reliance necessarily exposes the media to manipulation and fabrications integrated into “factual�? information and the photographs supplied to them by the terrorist organization, as is clearly illustrated by the Kissufim Crossing attack

You know all they had to do is put CNN or BBC instead of Press in front of the car and no one would have complained...after all no one really considers CNN or BBC reporters as Journalists
