The Union of journalists of Portugal rejected the complaint of the Palestinian authority, unhappy that reporters use the word «murder» to describe victims of the attacks and refuse to call them the most dangerous criminals.
About it writes on Monday, on February 29, the Jewish news Agency JTA, citing the official website of the Union.
This decision was made last week as part of its consideration of the complaint of Aguri Hikmat, Ambassador of the Palestinian national authority in Lisbon, which had argued that it resorted, in particular, the Israeli reporter Independent Communication Company (SIC) Enrique Margrit Julia Zimmermann.
In December of last year, Margrit Julia Zimmermann, a native Jewish family, claimed that the Palestinian authority is engaged in incitement to murder Jews, calling these actions a «Holy war». He has also published interviews with people who called the killings «a response to Israeli occupation».
The article referenced by the Palestinian Ambassador, was, «Killed 22 Israelis, and destroyed some hundreds of Palestinian murderers».
Aguri claimed that the material is biased and politically motivated, because the author does not differentiate between the occupier and the victims of the occupation, thus earning the «cold-blooded murder by the Israeli occupation authorities of Palestinian children and adolescents.»
The management of the syndicate and, in particular, President of San Jose Almeida, did not heed the rhetoric of the Palestinian Ambassador, stating that the terminology used by Zimmermanm, is legitimate and quite appropriate in this context.
