While I am considering the way that the Fairfax press writes its news stories I offer another example from Paul McGeoh where he reports about and Australian citizen who was among the “activists” on that ship stormed by the Israeli navy.
The whole piece is focused upon the way that this “activist was treated by the IDF and not one word of it explains just how this young “devout Muslim ” was in harms way in the first place because I want to know if this chap was wielding an Iron bar, a piece of pipe or even a knife. Instead of any background of just how Ahmed Luqman Talib happened to be in harms way we get a piece that is intended to evoke sympathy for someone who is being portrayed as some sort of noble victim rather than a willing combatant who got shot.
I just wonder if Ahmed Luqman Talib had made a video before he set out on this voyage…
What else would you expect from the Fairfax press???
