The Israeli authorities extended the ban on Monday on media coverage of developments in the deadly arson attack which took place in Duma in July.

Jewish settlers set fire to the Dawabsheh family home during the attack in the village near Nablus in the occupied West Bank. Eighteen month old Ali Dawabsheh was burnt to death and his father Saad has since died of his injuries. The baby’s mother and brother are still in hospital after suffering serious burns in the incident.

The Israeli police issued a statement this week banning the media from publishing any details or developments related to the investigation until the end of September. An initial one month press embargo was issued on 31 July.

Israel generates more hatred with their actions. Never seeks to reconcile. Always betrays. Goes on and on. Thousands of Palestinians suffer. And the world also. It may ever and for all build trust?

Noted with despair. The lopsided coverage of the Israeli-Arab coverage in the major western nations has the average person believing that there is no violence from the Israeli side.

Media people believe the end justifies the means--they think Israel is better than the alternatives and turn a blind eye.

Like, umm, fair is fair, eh.

I knew this from the moment Nutyahoo announced a gag order for this case, go figure..
That is one reason why they won't persecute jewish terrorism the way it should be and was "promised", they will never give away their security /intel secrets how they find out what.
And without proper media coverage the world will never know if/ that in reality these crimes very likely slip with impunity.

yada, yada, yada...

Only fools think they can hoodwink themselves and the world, indefinitely.

Palestine will be free!!
End the occupation and U.S. aid to Israel.

BDS - Boycott, Divestment and sanctions on Israel.
