About a minute ago I was watching the Gulf news station Al-Jazeera, which was being relayed by the Palestinian TV station Bethlehem Television. The subject of the broadcast was of course the American attack against Iraq. As soon as the discussion turned to the subject of Iraqi soldiers who surrendered to the Americans today, the TV station pulled the relay off the air and started broadcasting Palestinian propaganda films. The Palestinian National Authority likes its Iraqis to be fighting heros, not frightened soldiers who surrender.
