Palestinian Photojournalists Protest

The Western media continues to ignore Palestinian protests against talks with Israeli Vice Premier Shaul Mofaz, their violent repression on the part of Palestinian police, and the intimidation of Palestinian journalists. Yesterday, photojournalists protested outside the Palestinian Ministry of Interior. Western media outlets, which rely so heavily on Palestinian stringer photographers, are ignoring the following:

One wonders if the Islamist community is that intimidating the western reporters haven't the courage to report it or have been bought off. Possibly the reach of Islamic missions is revealed, and only the only narrative being told is one that submits to Shariah law. That american news desks are void on the issue makes one wonder if it is Islamist intimidation or that too many journalists and managers are so anti-Judeo-Christian traditions they are incapable of realizing what a threat Islamic global censorship is.
