S. and other Western news institutions had on Palestinian politics and society. What was the importance of journalism in Palestinian society during the second Intifada that qualified Mazen, a journalist slain in Iraq, to be regarded as a martyr for the Palestinian national cause? How are journalists, especially those who work for foreign news organizations, regarded in Palestinian society? Are they professionals or political activists, both or neither? Why did Mazen’s brothers and wife and nieces and nephews do so much for a young American documentary maker they had never met before?

In other cases, readers were people I had known for years, who I anticipated would offer me insightful and impassioned interpretations. S. and European stereotypes about Arabs and Palestinians. I had these articles translated into Arabic and gave them to my readers well ahead of our conversations about them.
In the process of denying Palestinians these cards, officials also made statements intimating that Palestinian journalists constituted threats to Israeli security, both because of what they said and what they could conceivably do. Israeli soldiers also shot several Palestinian journalists. These shootings happened in an array of circumstances such that it is impossible to ascribe motivation to each of the shootings.
