Playing For The Cameras

As if the manufactured dissent at Bil'in fence protests wasn't annoying enough, a Reuters cameraman is now remanded in prison for encouraging and directing Palestinian stone throwers. Israel National News explains:

On Tuesday, a Reuters cameraman was remanded to prison until trial for his part in rock-throwing attacks on security forces in Bil’in, where the separation fence is a constant target of protesters.

The cameraman, Imad Muhammad Intisar Boghnat, was arrested and charged as a result of violent riots in the Arab village of Bil’in, in the Modi’in region, on October 6, 2006. A videotape that the prosecution presented to the judge shows Boghnat encouraging and directing rioters in Bil’in to throw large chunks of rock at Israeli vehicles in such a way as to cause maximum damage. The accused is heard shouting, “Throw, throw!” and later, “Throw towards the little window!”

Bil'in protesters know a thing or two about playing for the cameras.
