No Western media is saying anything about the latest journalist killed in Israel by the IDF.
I wonder why.
Shireen Abu Akleh, a Palestinian journalist who worked with Al Jazeera for over two decades, was killed on Wednesday while covering an Israeli military raid on the city of Jenin in the northern part of the West Bank. The Palestinian authorities claim the Israeli military shot her in her head.
All militaries target unfriendly journalists. The US/UK bombed the Al Jazeera offices in Afghanistan in 2001, in Iraq in 2003, and multiple other times to prevent them from reporting on civilian casualties.
What makes Israel unique is that they are instructed to kill journalists they don’t like, rather than merely cripple their ability to communicate or transmit.
Even more amazing is that they are ready and willing to kill non-Jewish American citizens, never facing any punishment.
