Pro-'Israel' media lead defamation campaign against Rai Al Youm chief
The Jewish Chronicle newspaper calls for imposing the most severe punishments on the editor-in-chief of Rai Al Youm over his alleged support of "terrorism".
British-Palestinian political writer and editor-in-chief of the online newspaper Rai Al Youm, Abdel Bari Atwan, who resides in the British capital, London, is being subjected to a new smear campaign led by international Zionist groups and media.
The Jewish Chronicle newspaper, which is considered one of the largest newspapers supporting the Israeli occupation, called for imposing the most severe punishments on Atwan and for his trial over his alleged support of "terrorism".
The newspaper accused the BBC of not adopting neutrality in its reports regarding "Israel" and Jews and hosting figures who allegedly support "terrorism".
Prominent British figures in the network also called for refraining from conducting interviews with Atwan, accusing the latter of alleged "anti-Semitism"; the Israeli weapon of choice.
Atwan has previously been subjected to defamation campaigns. Last April, he was subjected to an Israeli campaign over hailing resistance operations in occupied Palestine.
The Jewish Chronicle had launched an attack on Atwan, threatening to prosecute him on charges of supporting "terrorism".
Responding to defamation campaigns against him, Atwan considered that while Israelis accuse him of supporting terrorism, "Israel" is an occupying entity and has established terrorism.
Atwan has previously told Al Mayadeen, which organized a solidarity campaign with him, that "huge media empires were established to block our voices," adding that Facebook and YouTube accounts are subjected to bans as a result of these campaigns.
