The most 'moral' country in the world is unfortunately not so moral for the press. Reporters Without Borders for press freedoms has declared: "Operation Cast Lead had an impact on the press. Israel sank 47 places in the 'Freedom of Press' index to 93rd position. This means it has lost its place at the head of the Middle Eastern countries, falling behind Kuwait (60th), United Arab Emirates (86th) and Lebanon (61st).Israel has begun to use the same methods internally as it does outside its own territory. Reporters Without Borders registered five arrests of journalists, some of them completely illegal, and three cases of imprisonment. The military censorship applied to all the media is also posing a threat to journalists. As regards its extraterritorial actions, Israel was ranked 150th. The toll of the war was very heavy. Around 20 journalists in the Gaza Strip were injured by the Israeli military forces and three were killed while covering the offensive." SAY IT OUD LOUD!
