  1. Agreement on terms
    Resource Type: Article
    First Published: 2007
    I have come to accept that western journalists cannot accurately, let alone objectively, represent the Middle East and the Arab world.

It is that even if correspondents strictly obey all the rules, they still present a fundamentally biased and skewed picture of the Middle East.

    Israel has a straightforward means to defend itself: put an end to its criminal actions in occupied territories, and accept the long-standing international consensus on a two-state settlement that has been blocked by the US and Israel for over 30 years, since the US first vetoed a Security Council resolution calling for a political settlement in these terms in 1976.
