Journalists Targeted but not by American Soldiers

In 2005 Eason Jordan made an outrageous claim that journalists had been targeted by the US military. This claim was made during a conference and though many disputed it the MSM seemed to take little notice.

During one of the discussions about the number of journalists killed in the Iraq War, Eason Jordan asserted that he knew of 12 journalists who had not only been killed by US troops in Iraq, but they had in fact been targeted. He repeated the assertion a few times, which seemed to win favor in parts of the audience (the anti-US crowd) and cause great strain on others. Forumblog

The fact is, journalists are targeted but not by Americans and not by Israelis. Journalists are targeted by those followers of the so called religion of peace. Early last year two Fox journalists were captured and forced to convert to Islam before they were released. Now there is word that another journalist has been abducted in Gaza.

An Agence France-Presse photographer, 50-year-old Peruvian national Jaime Razuri, was kidnapped in Gaza by unknown gunmen, according to two witnesses.

Several unmasked gunmen abducted the photographer at the entrance to the agency’s offices in the centre of Gaza City as he was returning from an assignment with a translator and a driver. Breitbart

The article claims that unknown gunmen abducted the journalist and this is probably technically accurate because they do not know who kidnapped the man but the reality is that if it occurred in Gaza it was probably not Israelis and it definitely was not Americans.

Perhaps we can have a conference on the danger posed to journalists from those in Ismal who the media is so quick to defend.
