Freedom of the Press #2Poster Home
The fine print says: Israeli media, in Hebrew and Arabic, can strongly criticize the head of government without fear of closure, arrest, imprisonment or even possible bodily harm. In Israel, freedom of expression is an essential component of human dignity.
FYI: In the Middle East, Israel has one of the highest concentrations of journalists in the world: • 350 foreign news organizations based in Jerusalem • 800 reporters, cameramen and technicians. • 1,300 journalists visit each year. (Peter Hermann, Sun Foreign Staff, July 7, 2003)
