An Open Thank You Letter to Charles Enderlin and France2

Blog Swarm request.
“Yaakov at Breath of the Beast


French TV network France 2 reporter Charles Enderlin reacts as he leaves the Paris courthouse following a hearing, Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2007. Israel has accused the French TV network France 2 of manipulating footage to make Israel look responsible for the September 2000 shooting death of a 12-year-old Palestinian boy. Palestinians blamed Israeli troops for the death, and the incident, which took place in the early days of the second Palestinian uprising against Israel, has become a recurring symbol for Palestinians of excessive Israeli force.

Blog Swarm – Call for help
Friends-
In the aftermath of the French victory and in the effort to advance the disgrace of Enderlin and France 2 I have posted an open letter to them on BotB. Please help me get as many links to it as possible so that if anyone in the world (including the perfidious CE) googles his name or France 2, there will be pages of his shame. Tag it, reproduce it, link it, what ever you want to do-
Thank You!
Here’s the link

Those who know me know that I am only happy to oblige.

I give you Yaacov Ben Moshe’s post in it’s entirety.

An Open Thank You Letter to Charles Enderlin and France2

Friday, May 23, 2008

Thank You Charles Enderlin and France2-

We have to admit we were angry with you for libeling Israel that we wanted to get you to take it back. It wasn’t just anger. We wanted to make it impossible for you to ever release such a tidal wave of violence and blood on us again. After the disastrous aftermath of your al Durah report, so many people suffered and died, we have come to think of you more as a war criminal than just an unethical journalist. Really, we do not feel that you deserve to be thought of as an honorable journalist. Fortunately for us your character flaws have relieved us of the responsibility to attack you. If you had ignored our criticism, let the whole thing drop and not sued anyone you would still be on top of the world today and Israel and the Jewish people would still be blackened by your libel.

Your restless guilt and vanity would not let you do the smart thing, though, and you sued Philipe Karsenty. Only those blinded by self-importance and its underlying insecurity, on the one hand, and driven by a need to deny fault on the other, would have felt the need.

So you showed your weakness and hubris just by filing the suit. Even more important though, from your law suit flowed the healing drama in the French courtroom in March. First, you demeaned yourself by bringing obviously altered tape into evidence into the courtroom. Then you further revealed your self delusion by pretending not to notice the derisive laughter of the gallery or that even the judge who was questioning you was treating you and your evasive explanations with amused disdain.

Now that the judgment is published, Charles, we are very pleased to see that you are going to do your best to help us to help you to complete your self-destruction by taking it to a higher court. We never had the stomach for the dirty fight you are waging we do not like to destroy other people- no matter how richly deserved. We, therefore are especially grateful to you that you have not had the moral fiber to resist you darker instincts and have thereby undertaken to do the job yourself.

We are not character assassins- but we are enjoying immensely watching your character commit a spectacularly public suicide.

Sincerely,
Yaacov Ben Moshe,
Second Draft

Paris Court Overturns The Libel Conviction In The “Al-Dura Affair” – Wolf Howling

France 2’s report purporting to show the IDF killing of a young Palestinian boy set off the second intifada with loss of life in the thousands. Phillipe Karsenty charged that France 2 and reporter Charles Enderlin had staged the story and that Israeli soldiers had not killed the boy. Enderlin and France 2 brought a case for libel. […]

Campaign Launched for Yemeni Journalist al-Khaiwani, Please Join

Please sign & Spread the word!
A journalist’s life is at stake.

Sticky post. Please scroll down for newer postings.

Campaign Launched for Yemeni Journalist al-Khaiwani, Please Join

Sign here please. Its a letter campaign to the Yemeni government, US, UK, UN and EU for my friend Yemeni journalist al-Khaiwani who may be sentenced to death in two weeks for insulting the president. We can’t have that. No. So please sign here. In Yemen, the campaign is co-sponsored by Member of Parliament Ahmed Saif Hasid who gave Jawa an interview about conditions in Yemen prisons and two prominent female journalists/activists.

Also the UK journalists organization, Article 19, has endorsed the campaign.

Some Al-Khaiwani quotes:

October 27, 2005 Yemen Times article by al-Khawiani “Stop Attacking the American Journalist” :

“Being an independent political article, Jane is an effective voice having its strong reverberation in different parts of the world. After their failure to attract Novak to their side, the Yemeni authorities turned to terrorize journalists, harm the reputation of Novak and prevent the circulation of her articles in the country in order not to let the Yemeni journalists know the westerners who back them.”

From my article after his 2007 arrest (but before his kidnapping):

Dec 2004, he wrote me from jail, “Democracy and freedom are not granted by a leader or a regime, it is a world wide human achievement of all the free people on earth.” and “I believe in democracy, freedom, equality and rights and am willing to suffer for their sake simply because I do not wish my children to suffer dictatorship and I will strive to provide them a better future.”May 2004, “We will continue our fight against corrupt crooks at the power center who are annoyed by the reports that have touched their interests,” he told the Yemen Times.

December 2006, he wrote to the United Nations, “The State hunts us, abuses our rights, and restrict our freedom of expressions. We were subjected to abduction, forcible disappearance, and illegal and unconstitutional arrests. We are deprived of our livelihood sources because we criticize corruption and the military regime that has been grasping power for 28 years.” (The United Nations failed to respond.)

In February 2007, al-Khaiwani was forcibly brought to court related to a published article. “I wished the court showed a similar zest in Anisah Al-Shuabi’s case or doing justice to Raash villagers,” he noted, referring to women raped by police and an entire village displaced at the whim of a sheik.

February 2007, he said his website Al-Shoura was blocked, “because we are criticizing corruption, the prejudices of rights and freedoms, and our continuing need for political and cultural reforms and good governance.”

December 2007: Al-Khiwani told MENASSAT.COM, “I am paying the price for believing the government and its claims about pursuing rise of democracy. After they broke into my house and terrified my family and kidnapped me in public, in front of the Al-Nida newspaper, I have this feeling that the authorities have decided to spill my blood.”

Article 19’s report on Yemen, “Freedom of Expression in Peril”, contains this from Al-Khaiwani, “They mobilize religion, laws and even the tribe against us. We, on the other hand, only own our dreams. They even want to rob us of this.”

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
