French Get Tough

French President Jacques Chirac has threatened to cut off all financial and humanitarian aid to the Palestinian Authority unless French journalist Muhammad Ouathi is freed.

It's not just foreign journalists being targeted by terrorists in Gaza.

In a related development, three Palestinian journalists were attacked on Monday night by unidentified assailants north of Khan Yunis.

According to the Palestinian Journalists Syndicate, the three suffered moderate stab wounds. It identified the three as Shams Odeh and his brother, Muhammad, who work for Reuters, and Fayez Abu Halaweh, a TV technician from east Jerusalem. Jerusalem Post

Since the press seems largely more sympathetic to the Palestinian cause than to the Israeli cause, it would stand to reason that the terrorists would have enough sense not to kidnap or stab journalists. But when did the acts of these terrorist thugs ever make sense.

Palestinian Arabs have been rewarded for blowing up planes, buses, shopping malls, shooting kids, the elderly, and two U.S. diplomats in Sudan, and so on. For this they've received U.N. recognition, huge welfare handouts, perpetual victimhood status, diplomatic endorsement from some of the most powerful Western leaders, and now statehood. They basically feel like they can do whatever the heck they want, and occasionally shoot themselves in the foot too, and still get paid, while Israel is slimed. Having Islam as part of this wretched mess doesn't help to attenuate the audacious claims of entitlement either.

It can get pretty frustrating at times.

We'll just have to continue telling it like it is.

Palestinians see the French (since they are western) as an extension of the Zionist Entity.

I don't think it mattered if the poor guy was French. He also had Morrocan citizenship. And the other three that were attacked were Palestinians.

For whatever reason, they are attacking their PR guys.
