If not for the sensitive and perceptive reporting of a few individual journalists such as Amira Hass of the Israeli daily, Haaretz, and Donald Macintyre of the British Independent, the untold suffering of the Palestinian people would have gone completely unnoticed.

Comments by MacIntyre

The Foreign Policy Centre (FPC) is a "New Labour" think-tank favoring "humanitarian intervention" and it published John Lloyd's Iraq and World Order.
