Al-Jazeerah, April 22, 2004





The U.S. Military policy of killing Arab journalists took an ironic turn yesterday—after having killed Arab journalists working for Al Jazeera and Al Arabiyah TV stations in Kabul and then in Baghdad, yesterday, they killed two Arab journalists who were working for the Pentagon in the U.S. propaganda station, Al Iraqiyah!


The journalists, who had often been derided by their colleagues for working for an American Pentagon station, were now seen in the Iraqi community as another indication of the American policy of killing Arab journalists. In this case, the military said it didn’t know they were working for the Pentagon. This has caused consternation, because the official American line has been that the killings have always been “accidental” or the “fault of the journalists.” But this raises questions about what the American military is actually trying to do in Iraq when it shows a desire to kill journalists who may not spout the American line; in this case, it backfired in two ways. It showed the crass killing of journalists, which is unethical and forbidden, and it showed that there is a desire on the part of the U.S. Military to cover up the truth of their brutality in Iraq, just as the Israelis do in Palestine. Some have pointed out that American policy in Iraq is the same as that of Israel in Palestine, this recent killing even proves the point more solidly.


In this case, the journalist’s car, like the others from two weeks ago from Al Arabiyah, was clearly marked as Journalists in English and Arabic. But, as happened with the Al Arabiyah journalists, the American soldiers didn’t wait to identify or ask the car to stop, they just began shooting according to eye-witnesses and the camerman, Jessem Kamel (who was wounded in the back). The two who were killed, As’ aad Kadhim and Hussein Saleh’, had just interviewed Iraqi Police and Iraqi Civilian Militia, in clear view of the American soldiers, then had driven less than 500 yards and were suddenly fired upon. There was no justification that could be given by the military except that they were 3 Arabs riding in a car—which doesn’t justify anything at all.



So there you have it. So much for freedom of the press. So much for “bringing democracy to Iraq.” So much for “bringing freedom to Iraq.”


We, in America, have come to a sad pass when this kind of brutality is now our hallmark. Those in Iraq know only of American cruelty and barbarism, now we understand how the Palestinians feel under the Israeli heel.

There is only one world power and it is called the United States of America.
And right now no one wants to be at peace with them , least of all the middle east.
