Israel Arrests Reuters Cameraman for Inciting Attack

After a Reuters cameraman was imprisoned for joining in a rock-throwing attack in an obvious effort to receive attention from al-Qaeda leadership, the blogosphere has come alive with several ideas on what we’d like to see.

On Tuesday, a Reuters cameraman was remanded to prison until trial for his part in rock-throwing attacks on security forces in Bil’in, where the separation fence is a constant target of protesters.

The cameraman, Imad Muhammad Intisar Boghnat, was arrested and charged as a result of violent riots in the Arab village of Bil’in, in the Modi’in region, on October 6, 2006. A videotape that the prosecution presented to the judge shows Boghnat encouraging and directing rioters in Bil’in to throw large chunks of rock at Israeli vehicles in such a way as to cause maximum damage. The accused is heard shouting, “Throw, throw!” and later, “Throw towards the little window!”

Michelle Malkin would like to see Reuters post the video on its site.

Allah’s suggestion is this: “They should totally create an avatar of this guy for the Reuters bureau in Second Life. You could have him cover virtual suicide bombings.”

Wizbang says, “The director’s cut.”

Do they have online applications for getting into al-Qaeda? If so, I’m sure they’ve already sent this guy one in prison. He can fill it out and be ready to go when he gets out.
