The missing reporter

This story from Missing Peace is one that should be taken up by every jounalist who believes in the integrity of his or her profession - JPOST Palestinian reporter Toameh latest victim of PA’s campaign against free speech.

This rare truth-telling journalist is finding it increasingly harder to report the corruption and lack of freedoms in the PA, and as a result our news world is becoming a quieter, but certainly not a better, place.

On his own Facebook Page abu Toameh posted this silent cri de coeur: “A campaign of intimidation, harassment, pressure, threats and boycotts has made it impossible for an Arab journalist to work in the Palestinian Authority-controlled territories.”
