Israeli Journalist Reflects

September 30, 2003 11:21 by

The Washington Post has a touching piece from an Israeli journalist struggling with her calling.

One section addresses Arab press coverage of Arab victims of terror:

One of the victims of the Cafe Hillel bombing in Jerusalem on Sept. 9 was a waiter, Shafik Karam, from Beit Hanina, a Palestinian Christian. The Palestinian press does not speak of acts of Palestinian terrorism, even when the terrorism hits Palestinians. The obituary said Karam, 27, had been “called by God” as a result of “an accident at his place of work,” as though a tray had fallen on his head. The shrinking Christian community here feels its continued existence is uncertain and that no one represents them.
