Natan Sharansky: "Racist"? By: Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook
Palestinian Media Watch | Wednesday, December 27, 2006


Muwatin, the Palestinian Institute for the Study of Democracy, defined former Israeli Minister Natan Sharansky as "The Racist" in its report on the Medal of Honor Sharansky received from President George Bush. In the special Muwatin supplement, distributed with the Palestinian Authority daily Al-Ayyam, the picture of Bush placing the Medal on Sharansky appears with the following caption:

“Bush puts the Medal of Freedom on the racist Natan Sharansky.”
[Al-Ayyam, December 26, 2006]

[The news supplement, “Parliamentary Horizons,” was written by Muwatin, the Palestinian Institute for the Study of Democracy. The institute is funded by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (NORAD), a foreign aid organization which is also a directorate under Norway’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.]
