Arab anti-Israel Activist Long Employed as “News” PhotoJournalist

Can someone who believes and works to ensure that there are no relations between Israel and the Arab Palestinians be a fair journalist?

POPULAR STRUGGLE COORDINATING COMMITTEE

Online, Arouri has boasted about his position as Arabic Media Coordinator and Project Manager between 2009 – 2011 with the Popular Struggle Coordinating Committee.  This is a collaboration between community organizers throughout the Arab Palestinian communities which is modeled on activities carried out during the First Intifada.

These diverse, non-partisan committees lead community resistance to Israeli occupation in various forms, such as marches, strikes, demonstrations, direct actions and legal campaigns, as well as supporting boycott, divestment and sanctions.

It is hard to understand how someone so deeply involved in activities which are not even characterizable as “pro-Palestinian,” but instead are firmly anti-Israel, can be employed as a journalist covering the Arab – Israeli conflict.

But it is not only the major media outlets which have rewarded him despite his virulently anti-Israel activities.

In September, 2012, Arouri’s photography was part of an exhibition at a show at the U.S. Consulate in Jerusalem which featured “8 Palestinian photojournalists.”  Apparently Arouri’s claim that Arab Palestinian journalists aren’t allowed to enter Jerusalem does not apply to him.

    No such place as palatine and no such people as Palestinians. Who was their leader before the terrorist Arafat? What were their borders? What was their currency and what is there no record if it? A lie said over and over again dies not make it true.
