CNN fires Pakistani journalist over tweeting against Israel
American news channel, CNN has cut ties with a Pakistani journalist for speaking in support of Palestine and against Israeli apartheid.
Interestingly, the western media which so pompously speaks of freedom of speech, could not bear a journalist’s criticism against Zionism.
Eldest child of former US president, Donald Trump Jr had also criticised the CNN after Pakistani journalist Adeel Raja, working with the multinational news network as a freelance contributor, tweeted against Israeli raids on unarmed innocent Palestinians.
At least 42 more Palestinians including ten children were martyred in a single day during Israeli military raid on Sunday.
While, 209 Palestinians in total have been martyred in Israeli air strikes and artillery bombardment during the past week.
In complete disregard of all international calls for ceasefire, the Israeli military launched another series of air raids on the Gaza Strip on Monday.
The UN Security Council which met in New York to discuss the situation in Middle East and Israeli offensive against unarmed Palestinians made no progress in solving crisis.
Upon the recent developments, Adeel Raja had expressed his opinion that the world needed a Hitler today. The tweet seemed to be influenced by immediate emotions as it was later deleted.
Raja said he was glad that a single tweet contributed to the Palestine cause and brought it to limelight with him loosing his job.
