Alan Johnston

Alan Johnston bannerIt’s not me like to go off on one (well, not like this), but why is Alan Johnston still a captive?

A man who lives and work in Gaza, probably the best friend the Palestinians have (impartial journalism notwithstanding), so he gets kidnapped.

Mind you, the Israelis usually take pot-shots at journalists (ask Orla Guerin)… maybe there’s hope for the Middle East after all, now that they have a common ‘enemy’?
