Another Fatah "Lesson in Journalism"
Khaled Abu Toameh of the Jerusalem Post reports yesterday:
Fatah gunmen on Saturday threatened to shut the offices of the pan-Arab Al-Arabiyah sattelite TV station in the West Bank and Gaza Strip after accusing it of "defaming" Palestinian female suicide bombers and their families.
Leaflets distributed by Fatah's armed wing, the Aksa Martyrs Brigade, demanded that the Dubai-based station apologize to the families in particular and the Palestinians in general within 24 hours or else its offices would be closed. . . .
[The leaflets charged:] "This film depicts female suicide bombers as a group of women suffering from psychological problems and who are under pressure from males. It claims that in order to rid themselves of these problems, these women are prepared to kill themselves. . . "
