Reader comment on: Freedom of Expression? Not for Palestinians

Submitted by Balakrishnan, Feb 15, 2013 23:48

It is highly regrettable to note that the funds that civilized Western countries send to the Palestinians is not to used to civilize and democratize the people, but is utilized against Israel, which seeks to maintain peace in that holy land. Besides, it is the duty of the donor countries to raise their voices against the authoritarian way of gaging the free speech of journalists who criticise against Palestine and Hamas' misrule. When Western countries advocate both free speech and human rights to world, keeping silent is open discrimination.
