Palestinian affairs journalists working for the Israeli media decided Sunday not
to cover the meeting between PA President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli politicians
from Kadima and Labor in Ramallah.
The decision was taken by the
Association for Palestinian Affairs Correspondents after representatives of the
Geneva Initiative, who initiated the meeting with Abbas, allowed only one
journalist from Haaretz to accompany them.
All the other journalists who
requested to cover the meeting had initially been told by the Israeli organizers
that no reporter would be accompanying the delegation to Ramallah.
