The Anti-Defamation League condemned the decision by the Washington, DC Newseum to commemorate the lives of two journalists, who worked for Hamas-operated Al-Aqsa television, in a ceremony dedicated to news workers killed in the field in 2012.

The ADL "expressed shock and outrage" Saturday that Hama members Hussam Salama and Mahmoud al-Kumi would be included in the museum's annual Journalists Memorial ceremony on Monday, and requested their names not be included on a permanent fixture.

During the ceremony, the names and photos of the 84 journalists who died or were killed in 2012, along with six from the 2011, were to be projected onto a 74-foot-tall "tablet" inscribed with the First Amendment.
