"The Arab American University" Commemorates World Press Freedom Day

Sunday, May 12, 2024

The Arab American University has commemorated the World Press Freedom Day by holding an educational symposium organized by the Department of Arabic Language and Media in the Faculty of Arts and Education in cooperation with the Student Union Council, and hosting journalist Ali Samoudi.

The symposium was moderated by the Head of the Arabic Language and Media Department, Mr. Sudqi Mousa. The symposium was attended by the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Education, Dr. Jamal Hanaysheh, lecturer in the Arabic Language and Media Department, Dr. Imad Abu Hassan, lecturer in the Department of Arabic Language and Media, Dr. Mahmoud Khlouf, lecturer in the General Culture Department, Dr. Mousa Odeh, the President and staff of the Student Union Council as well as University students.

Journalist Samoudi started his speech by presenting situations and advice from his own experience in journalistic work. He advised the students to persevere and insist on achieving their dreams and to believe in their abilities as well as to build a wide network of relationships that will help them in their professional future, and for their voice to be free and true.

Samoudi touched upon the suffering that Palestinian journalists are subjected to, including killing, arrest, injury, and prevention from coverage. He said that although journalistic work is surrounded with risks that affect the journalist鈥檚 life, he puts all these risks aside in order to convey the truth of what the Palestinian people are exposed to. The journalist must have a sense of belonging to his homeland and people, and believe in their rights and demands, so that he can deliver his message, Samoudi added.

Samoudi spoke about the assassination of journalist Sherine Abu Aqla and the severe injury he suffered at the time. He considered the assassination of Sherine and other Palestinian journalists to be the beginning of the crime committed today against Palestinian journalists and their unprecedented direct targeting by the occupation.

In turn, the Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Education, Dr. Jamal Hanaysheh praised the role of Palestinian journalists in conveying the truth despite the war crimes they are exposed to in the Gaza Strip, the destruction of media institutions, and the prevention of foreign media from entering the Strip.

He stressed that the Palestinian journalist once again proves his courage and professional competence, which did not please the occupation as it deliberately targeted journalists, closed media institutions, and executed freedom of the press.

Dr. Hanaysheh called on international human rights institutions to protect Palestinian journalists, praising UNESCO's honoring of Gaza Strip journalists who cover the Israeli war against the Strip and granting them the World Press Freedom Award.

Through a speech by student Ahmed Abu Al-Rub, the Student Union Council expressed its appreciation for Palestinian journalists and its pride in their national and professional role.

Abu Al-Rub said that Palestinian journalists provide a dignified model of giving, and they are the knights of the truth that the occupation seeks to disappear.
