'Palestinian' journalists to stage sit-down strike to protest assaults by 'security forces'

The 'Palestinian Authority' is working on the democracy thing. They understand that deposed Egyptian President Mohammed Morsy is not a democrat. They understand think that the Americans will not be pleased with them if the 'Palestinians' come out en masse to support Morsy. They know that Hamas supports Morsy and therefore they must oppose him - my enemy's enemy is my friend. But they think that the way to get there is to beat up journalists who cover pro-Morsy protests. As a result, there will be a sit-down strike of journalists in Ramallah on Sunday.
The Palestinian Journalists Syndicate in the West Bank called on its members to participate in the protest and condemned the attacks as an assault on freedom of expression.
The syndicate called on the PA leadership to punish security officers and policemen who assault journalists.
The latest protest follows an incident during which PA security officers beat a number of journalists during a rally in Ramallah last Friday in support of deposed Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi.
The journalists complained that the officers also confiscated their cameras and deleted footage of the rally.
The assaults came as anti-riot policemen used force to break up the rally, which the PA said was organized by Hamas.
Keep fooling yourselves, Obami, that if God forbid there is ever a state of 'Palestine' it will be a democratic one. It is far more likely that it will look like Syria or Egypt or Lebanon than that it will look like Israel.

What could go wrong?
