PARIS, April 12: Several of the world's leading associations of
journalists, including the Jerusalem-based Foreign Press Association,
have unanimously condemned Israel for its treatment of journalists
reporting on the Israeli incursions into the Palestinian territories. 

The associations include the Foreign Press Association (Jerusalem), the
Committee to Protect Journalists (New York), the International
Federation of Journalists (Brussels), International Press Institute
(Vienna), Reporters Sans Frontiers (Paris), and the World Association of
Newspapers (Paris). 

According to a statement, the organizations in question "call on the
government of Israel to allow the foreign media access to the cities of
the West Bank. The prolonged attempt to seal off entire cities, where
hundreds of thousands of people live, has been excessive, unjustifiable
and utterly counter-productive." 

The associations said that they "call on Israeli officials to desist
from public attacks on the foreign press in which irresponsible
generalizations have been employed to criticize the way we conduct our
business. They only undermine the freedom of the press and endanger
journalists."
