The Palestinian Journalists’ Syndicate is instructing its members to not speak to any American officials.
A meeting was planned for the US consulate in Jerusalem in the coming days and the PJS issued a statement that “the union stressed its rejection of such meetings, or any relationship with the US administration and its embassies and consulates, calling on all journalists not to respond to such calls, considering that participation in them is against the position of the union and the position of national consensus to their arrogance and their disregard for the positions and feelings of the Palestinian people.”
The PJS claims on its webpage to support freedom of the press.
They support freedom of expression – as long as it is the kind of expression they agree with.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
