PROPAGANDA !

THE PROPAGANDA FACTORY











More than 30 journalists were
on board the flotilla when it was intercepted by Israel

Lawyers have already begun preparing lawsuits in several
European countries, according to several of the journalists, who met in
Istanbul on Wednesday. The group accused Israel of violating international law

One of the nine people killed on board the Mavi Marmara, the main ship, was Cevdet Kulclar, a Turkish journalist.

Reporters who were on board the ships say the Israeli government never returned their equipment or passports, and that Israeli soldiers later used their credit cards.

An Italian journalist, Manolo Luppichini, told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz in June that his credit card was used to make NIS250 ($65) worth of purchases in Israel.

In a statement released after their meeting, the journalists said they are demanding compensation for their losses, the return of their equipment, and an international inquiry into Israel's treatment of the reporters on board the flotilla.

The group of more than 30 journalists includes reporters from Turkey, Spain, Germany, Lebanon, Egypt, the United Kingdom and the United States.

Several of the journalist on board the ship were from Al Jazeera.

But, as millions of loyalviewers already know, Al Jazeera promotes a level of free speech and dissent rarely seen in the Arab world. With plans to go global,it might just become your network of choice.

"Al Jazeera Supports Terrorism"

False, though the network makes little attempt to disassociate itself from those who do. This claim is one of the loudest arguments that Western critics have levied against the Arabic-language news channel since its inception 10 years ago, when the Doha, Qatar-based network pledged to present all viewpoints....
