Iraqi PM slams Arab media
Iraqi Prime Minister Ibrahim Jaafari criticized Arab media, accusing them of being biased and hostile to his country. In an interview published by the London-based Arabic daily al-Sharq al-Awsat, Jaafari said, "Arab media are still hostile and biased, especially the satellite Arab televisions."
He stressed that crimes are committed in Iraq, but the Arab media don't refer to them as acts of terrorism. "The brave Iraqi policeman and soldier are killed, but this is not called terrorism, pure Iraqi women are murdered but this is not described as terrorism, the innocent Iraqi child is killed but this is not terrorism according to the Arab media," he added. The Iraqi leader conveyed that Arab channels ignore the fact that many Iraqi women are murdered after being raped by the "enemy of the Iraqi nation."
