A Palestinian Journalist on Freedom in Palestine

Michael Totten has a transcript of a speech by Khaled Abu Toameh, a Palestinian journalist who lives and works in Israel. I'm not sure what to throw up as the teaser highlight because there's so much here. How about the part where Toameh recounts how Arab "fixers" make sure MSM reporting from Gaza and the West Bank is sufficiently distorted and biased? Or about how critics of Fatah were systematically killed and jailed? Or how Western money was used to fund anti-Western propaganda? I dunno, it's probably just better if you read it all.
