Committee To Protect Some Journalists

Look at this lousy press release:  "Two Israeli airstrikes killed three journalists in the Gaza Strip today, according to news reports. The fatal attacks followed a series of Israeli strikes earlier in the week that injured at least nine journalists and damaged news outlets.  Mahmoud al-Kumi and Hussam Salama, cameramen for the Hamas-run Al-Aqsa TV..."  What difference does it make if the victim worked for a Hamas-run or potato-run TV when he was clearly a journalist?  So if Arabs were to dismiss Israeli journalists as "Israeli-run" it would make them legitimate targets?    The statement almost said that while those victims were terrorist journalists, maybe Israel went too far.
