Al-Jazeera have finally presented their version of the story. Their journalist was arrested by the Palestinian Security Forces and questioned about an interview he held with a senior member of the Al-Aqsa Brigades (Fatah) in which the Al-Aqsa leader said his movement was responsible for the terrorist attack in Tel Aviv and that such attacks would continue. I stress this because it is mentioned in today's story on the Al-Jazeera website, which means that they are sticking by this story in spite of pressure from the PA.

The article also mentions that the Palestinians shut down the Al-Jazeera offices in Gaza on 21 March 2001 after Al-Jazeera announced it would be broadcasting a documentary on the Lebanese civil war. Al-Jazeera states that the PNA said it contains insults to the Palestinian leadership.

Talk about biting the hand that feeds you...
