The crashing FTSE 100 is full of bargain stocks! Here’s what Warren Buffett would do

first_img Today’s a great time to go shopping for shares, as the crashing FTSE 100 now contains loads of bargain stocks. However, simply rushing around buying the cheapest shares you see is a recipe for disaster. Some companies may struggle even after the coronavirus lockdown eases. Instead, listen to Warren Buffett, the world’s greatest investor.After the stock market crash, you can find bargain stocks all over the FTSE 100, but they need to have recovery potential as well. Before using the bear market to load up your Stocks and Shares ISA, heed Buffett’s wise words.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The first thing you need at times like these is the courage to go shopping for crashing FTSE 100 bargain stocks in the first place. Buffett famously suggested that, at times like these, you need to be “greedy when others are fearful,” but he didn’t stop there.Crashing FTSE 100 opportunityHe also said that: “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” Any investment you make today is like planting a tree. We live in uncertain times, as nobody knows how long the lockdown will last (even the government), or how rapidly the economy will recover. Trees take time to grow. You should aim to hold any bargain stocks you buy today for the long-term.Buffett also said: “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” This is vital to remember right now. Crashing FTSE 100 shares may look so cheap, but they don’t all offer value.I would be wary of buying cruise operator Carnival, for example, even though many investors hopped on board during last week’s rally. I think it could be a long time before people are willing to book cruises in large numbers. There are better bargain stocks out there.Choose your bargain stocks carefullyI am also wary of airlines, such as easyJet and British Airways owner International Airlines Consolidated Group, as the return to flying will be slow, and hampered by many restrictions. Cheap isn’t everything. Value is.Another Buffett saying applies now: “It’s only when the tide goes out that you discover who’s been swimming naked.”The tide has definitely gone out now, leaving the crashing FTSE 100 on the rocks. Covid-19 gives poorly run companies an easy scapegoat. I’d be wary of buying any company that’s cheap because it was struggling before the crisis struck, as it will find the recovery hard too.Buffett would knowCompanies such as NMC Health, Pearson, and Centrica were the three worst performers on the FTSE 100 last year. The stock market crash hasn’t suddenly made them unmissable bargains.Buffett would want to take advantage of a stock market crash like this one to buy bargain stocks. He wouldn’t buy just anything, though.

Five things we learned about rugby – June

first_img Main man: Eddie Jones has achievement some remarkable results with England The Eddie Jones factor, Spidercam, the Champions Cup draw and Wales’ tactics switch are all discussed British and Irish Lions’ tickets are correctly pricedRugby regularly finds itself reeling between its amateur ideals and the need for professional revenue streams. The cost of international tickets often being the fulcrum of the argument. And the pricing announcement for the British and Irish Lions tickets for New Zealand 2017 has been no different. The prices range from approximately £80 to £280 and have received some criticism for their seemingly excessive cost. But the reality is that they aren’t overly priced. This isn’t to say that they don’t cost a lot of money, they do, but the perceived value of the product is in line with other such premium events.Priceless commodity: The Lions tours are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunityThe British and Irish Lions’ test matches aren’t normal test matches. They’re priced in line with other events like the Olympics, the Ryder Cup and the Rugby World Cup; where an accumulation of multinational talent is on show and therefore charged accordingly. They’re ‘bucket-list’ items, once in a lifetime opportunities for many and as a result carry a price premium. What’s more, the revenue from the ticket sales benefits the home unions hugely and sustains the game in the Northern Hemisphere. If rugby wants to move forward commercially, it needs to get over this notion that tickets should be affordable. Tickets don’t need to be affordable, they need to sell. And in this instance they will, ten times over. Eddie Jones ‘won rugby’ in JuneEddie Jones won rugby in June. He won the whole thing. Every aspect of it. To spin a failing national squad around in such a short time frame is remarkable. To be vindicated over the decision to choose Dylan Hartley as captain is ‘Any Given Sunday’ type stuff. To win a test series three to zip against the Wallabies, away from home, is worthy of the British and Irish Lions’ job – even though he doesn’t want it. To play an outside half, in Owen Farrell, at twelve (which is a very Wallaby thing to do) was devilishly astute – hopefully other Northern Hemisphere test coaches were watching.Mastermind: Eddie Jones didn’t put a foot wrong in Australia as he guided England to a 3-0 Series winTo make two first half substitutions, due to performance and not injury, was as ballsy as it was effective. And to resurrect the seemingly tarnished career of Chris Robshaw into one of the key performers of the summer tours was no mean feat, to put it lightly. But above all else, he oversaw the equally rejuvenated James Haskell execute a once in a career sidestep, and for that we salute you Eddie Jones.The quality of the Champions Cup drawJune wasn’t exactly Europe’s finest month, but we can all agree that the changes to Europe’s elite competition requires no second vote. You just need to look at last month’s draw. Barring Zebre, who are the tooth-picks at this grand banquet, there are no longer any gimmies in the Champions Cup. A situation which occurs in no other rugby competition in the world. Every other league and tournament coughs up a shoal of minnows, even the Rugby World Cup – the Champions Cup has but one.Glittering prize: Saracens, the current holders, are pooled with three-time winners ToulonIt is now a competition where even the weaker pools are ‘pools of death’ and the stronger examples, like number three, are ‘pools of euthanasia’ – where Sale and the Scarlets may be considering a trip to a Geneva clinic rather than be put through the pain of Toulon and Saracens. Super Rugby may have the skills, and the Top 14 the cash, but the Champions Cup is now the envy of the rugby world.Wales chose the right time to change tacticsMany will argue that Wales chose the wrong time to change their long-held tactics. And a three Test defeat to the All Blacks in June may well have illustrated that. But to others, this was exactly the right time to throw out angles as old as Pythagoras himself. Wales could have continued with their carrying through the twelve channel and obsession with contact for another month, but it would have proved nothing. TAGS: Highlight LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Evolving: Wales are changing their attacking game but are playing catch-upWales needed to change the way they were playing in order to remain competitive over the next four year cycle and prevent a widening gap between themselves and the All Blacks. To be bold and competitive for 50 minutes against the All Blacks was not enough and to be blown away in the third test was nowhere near enough. This series was the perfect time for Wales to change. If anything it proves that the change came too late.Spidercam needs its own ruleMost people are afraid of touching spiders. On the list of fearful creatures they come just below wasps  (the animal, not the club) and jellyfish, but rugby players shouldn’t be scared of touching spider-cam with a rugby ball. It is a situation which occurred during the Wallaby v England test and left even Nigel Owens, the benchmark in referring, making an unusual call. With the ball having been kicked at Spider-cam, and contact made, the resulting deflection was declared as ‘play-on’ – the insinuation being that the situation is equally unpredictable for both teams.Distraction: Players have enough to worry about without thinking about SpidercamBut this cannot be. If the ball hits the referee, or a player is obstructed by the referee, play stops and spider-cam is no different. Rugby players shouldn’t have to worry about what’s above them, as there are plenty of far more worrying things in front of them. Can you imagine if a Rugby World Cup final was decided by a weird deflection from Spidercam or any other piece of kit for that matter? It’s a simple situation to correct and corrected it must be.last_img read more

Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Hendersonville,  Carolina del Norte] La Cámara de Obispos de la Iglesia Episcopal dijo sentirse “agraviada y afligida” por la decisión del arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby de excluir a los cónyuges del mismo sexo de los obispos invitados a la Conferencia de Lambeth 2020.Los obispos dijeron que “les preocupa el uso de la exclusión como un medio de edificar la Comunión”.Welby dice en el sitio web de la reunión de obispos de la Comunión Anglicana que ruega que “la Conferencia de Lambeth revigorice la Comunión”. El sitio web advierte que Welby ha invitado a “todos los obispos con derecho a asistir y a sus cónyuges”.La mayoría de los miembros de la Cámara se propone asistir a Lambeth, según la declaración. Los obispos dijeron que quieren continuar entablando relaciones a través de la Comunión, “fomentando el diálogo en torno a las diversas expresiones culturales del matrimonio” y “reflejando nuestras interpretaciones del matrimonio, así como nuestro compromiso con la dignidad de todos los seres humanos, incluidos los derechos humanos de las personas LGBTQ+.”La declaración se aprobó en una votación de viva voz. Al menos a un obispo, Dan Martins de Springfield, pudo oírsele votar en contra.Mary Glasspool, obispa auxiliar de la Diócesis de Nueva York es en la actualidad el único obispo en servicio activo de la Iglesia Episcopal que tiene un cónyuge del mismo sexo. Ella le habló a la Cámara el 14 de marzo.El Rdo. Thomas Brown debe ser ordenado y consagrado el 22 de junio como el próximo obispo de la Diócesis de Maine. Él está casado con el Rdo. Thomas Mousin. La diócesis eligió a Brown el 9 de febrero. Es posible que las diócesis de la Iglesia Episcopal elijan a obispos con cónyuges del mismo sexo entre ahora y el 23 de julio de 2020, día en que comienza la Conferencia de Lambeth.El único otro obispo activo en la Comunión Anglicana a quien la decisión de Welby es sabido que se aplica es Kevin Robertson, obispo sufragáneo de la Diócesis de Toronto, quien se casó con Mohan Sharma, su pareja por casi 10 años, el 28 de diciembre de 2018.La declaración de la Cámara de Obispos incluye una declaración del Grupo de Planificación de los Cónyuges de los Obispos que dice “unimos nuestras voces a las de aquellos en la Iglesia Episcopal que han expresado su desilusión y consternación” con la decisión de Welby. “Estamos particularmente al lado de nuestra compañera, Becki Sander, esposa de la obispa Mary Glasspool”, afirmaron.“La comunidad de cónyuges entiende que la Comunión Anglicana no es de opinión unánime respecto al matrimonio, y que, en la vida de la Comunión, este es un asunto complejo”, dijeron. “Sin embargo, la exclusión de cónyuges del mismo género parece una reacción simplista a un problema complejo. Nos entristece que todos no sean bienvenidos a caminar, escuchar y dar testimonio con nosotros, y que todas las voces no se escuchen en esta reunión”.Los obispos rehusaron en una votación a mano alzada con 44 a favor y 42 en contra aprobar una segunda resolución que instaba al obispo primado Michael Curry a pedirle a Welby que cambiara de opinión. Curry le dijo a la Cámara antes de la votación que él había tenido “una larga conversación” con el Arzobispo y que también había intercambiado cartas con él.“Tengo que ser sincero con ustedes, yo no espero que él cambie, pero estoy dispuesto a decir que a esta Cámara realmente le gustaría que ello fuese reconsiderado si pudiera ser de alguna manera”, dijo Curry.También en la reuniónDavid Rice, obispo de la Diócesis de San Joaquín, le habla a la Cámara el 15 de marzo, horas después de los ataques terroristas en dos mezquitas de Christchurch, Nueva Zelanda. Rice prestó servicios una vez como vicario en la Diócesis de Christchurch. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.Los obispos respondieron de varias maneras a los ataques a dos mezquitas en Christchurch, Nueva Zelanda, en los cuales murieron 49 personas. La Eucaristía matutina incluyó oraciones por “las víctimas de las agresiones a tiros en Nueva Zelanda, por el descanso de sus almas y la paz para sus familias”.David Rice, el obispo de la Diócesis de San Joaquín, al hablar en la apertura de la sesión matutina, calificó los ataques como “un acto de terrorismo sin precedentes”.Rice fue el obispo de la Diócesis de Waiapu, en la Iglesia Anglicana de Aotearoa, Nueva Zelanda y Polinesia cuando lo llamaron a San Joaquín. Nacido y criado en Carolina del Norte, fue pastor metodista durante ocho años antes de su ordenación en la Iglesia Anglicana.Él comenzó su sacerdocio anglicano en la Diócesis de Christchurch. Fue allí donde su hija y su hijo fueron al kindergarten y a la escuela primaria, le dijo él a la Cámara. Él y su esposa, Tracy, tienen una casa allí, a la cual se irán a vivir cuando se jubilen, dijo Rice.“Siento, estando aquí ante ustedes – y yo debía haber pensado en esto porque estuve despierto toda la noche contactando a familiares y amigos para ver si estaban bien—que tengo que decir algo, pero encuentro que no tengo palabras”.Él dijo que le sugirió a Ian Douglas, obispo de la Diócesis de Connecticut, que los Obispos contra la Violencia Armada se comunicaran con Peter Carrell, el obispo de Christchurch y con Richard Wallace, que dirige la Te Wai Pounamu, la diócesis maorí, “para enviarle nuestro amor como un acto de solidaridad”.Rice mencionó la declaración de la primera ministra de Nueva Zelanda, Jacinda Ardern, quien dijo de las víctimas de los ataques, “ellos son nosotros. La persona que ha perpetrado esta violencia contra nosotros no lo es.  Ellas no tienen lugar en Nueva Zelanda”.Rice dijo, “repitan conmigo, ‘ellos son nosotros’”. La Cámara respondió con voz potente, y Rice hizo una pausa para serenarse.“Nuestros hermanas y hermanos inmigrantes y refugiados, repitan conmigo, ‘ellos son nosotros’”.La Cámara respondió: “Ellos son nosotros”.“Nuestros hermanas y hermanos palestinos, repitan conmigo, ‘ellos son nosotros’”.La Cámara respondió: “Ellos son nosotros”.“Aquellos que incluso extravían su camino y hacen daño, repitan conmigo, ‘ellos son nosotros’”.La Cámara respondió: “Ellos son nosotros”.“Amén”, dijo Rice, regresando a su mesa.Los obispos oraron en silencio y luego fueron dirigidos en oración por la Muy Rda. Miguelina Howell, capellana de la Cámara y deana de la iglesia catedral de Cristo  [Christ Church Cathedral] en Hartford, Connecticut.Más tarde en el día, los miembros de Obispos Contra la Violencia Armada, asistieron al oficio de oración semanal del grupo que se transmite en directo vía Facebook y que se celebró este viernes en la capilla del Centro de Conferencias y Retiro en Kanuga . La vigilia incluyó algunas palabras de Curry.La Cámara de Obispos aprobó una resolución en que se comprometía a respaldar la Resolución D034 de la de la Convención General, que suspende durante tres años el canon (la ley eclesiástica) que le pone límite de tiempo a la iniciación de procedimientos en casos de conducta sexual impropia de clérigos contra adultos. La Iglesia no tiene ningún límite en la denuncia de conducta sexual impropia de clérigos contra niños y menores de 21 años.La resolución afirma que los obispos “se proponen tener una enérgica respuesta pastoral en todos los asuntos concernientes a la conducta sexual impropia, independientemente de cuándo la presunta conducta impropia tuvo lugar”.DeDe Duncan-Probe, obispa de la Diócesis de Nueva York Central, le dijo más tarde a la Cámara que el grupo que planeó la Liturgia de Escucha durante la Convención General de 2018, había reunido un conjunto de materiales para que otros episcopales los usaran para oficios semejantes.“Es nuestra responsabilidad como obispos cerciorarnos de que todo el mundo está seguro y de responder positivamente cuando eso no sea cierto”, dijo ella.Los obispos que han hecho la promesa de la Iglesia Episcopal de proteger y renovar la Tierra y los que en ella viven se reunieron bajo los árboles en el Centro de Conferencias y Retiro de Kanuga para grabar un vídeo por el que invitan al resto de la Iglesia a unírseles. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ ENS.Los obispos también aprobaron “comprometerse, individual y colectivamente a vivir el Camino del Amor, prácticas para una vida centrada en Jesús, y le pedimos a todos los miembros de la Iglesia Episcopal que contemplen el unirse a nosotros en encontrar y seguir a Jesús a través del Camino del Amor”.Pierre Whalon, obispo sufragáneo de la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa, propuso la resolución, diciendo que surgía de explorar el Camino del Amor durante los últimos tres días.Whalon y algunos colegas debatieron de qué manera el Camino del Amor podría convertirse de facto en una estrategia para la misión de la Iglesia si los obispos se comprometían a vivir el Camino del Amor e invitaban a otros episcopales a unírseles.“Hemos tenido montones de cosas que surgieron que se suponía que eran programas que cambiaban la vida, y se presentaron y todo siguió igual,” dijo Whalon. “Creo que el Camino del Amor podría considerarse no obstante otro programa” si los obispos y toda la Iglesia no se comprometen con las prácticas que perfila.Más información acerca del Camino del Amor se encuentra aquí.Cinco obispas, que han sido ordenadas y consagradas o electas desde la Convención General de 2018, asistieron a la reunión de marzo. Son ellas Jennifer Reddall, obispa de Arizona; Carlye Hughes, obispa de Newark; Phoebe Roaf, obispa electa de Tennessee Occidental, Kimberly D. Lucas, obispa electa de Colorado y Cathy Bascom, obispa de Kansas.La Cámara de Obispos se reunió del 12 al 15 de marzo. Diane Jardinie Bruce, obispa de la Diócesis de Los Ángeles, secretaria de la Cámara, dijo que 132 obispos habían asistido a la reunión, entre ellos tres obispos electos. Los obispos electos que han recibido los consentimientos que se exigen canónicamente para su ordenación y consagración son invitados a asistir a las reuniones. Arthur Williams, obispo sufragáneo jubilado de Ohio, fue el obispo de mayor edad presente.Cinco de los 10 obispos que componen la “clase” de 2019 son mujeres, siendo la primera vez en la historia de la Iglesia [Episcopal] que una promoción de obispos está parejamente dividida entre mujeres y hombres. Cuatro de los 10 son personas de color, Carlye Hughes, de la Diócesis de Newark; Cristóbal León Lozano, obispo electo de la Diócesis de Ecuador Litoral (que no asistió a la reunión); Kimberly D. Lucas, obispa electa de Colorado y Phoebe Roaf, obispa electa de Tennessee Occidental.Esta es la reunión anual del grupo en primavera. Los obispos normalmente se reúnen en primavera y en otoño en los años en que no hay Convención General. Volverán a reunirse del 17 al 20 de septiembre. Los cónyuges suelen  ser parte de la reunión de otoño.Otra cobertura de ENS puede encontrarse aquí.– La Rda. Mary Frances Schjonberg es redactora sénior y reportera de Episcopal News Service.

Redreaders aims to provide a second pair of eyes along with friendly advice and expert ./guidance, and it’s amazing the difference this type of support can make, from pointing out the obvious to helping charities to be that bit more creative in their approach.”The new service follows the success of Red Foundation’s support service for organisations applying to the ‘vinvolved’ grant round from youth volunteering charity v last year, where over 80% of applicants using Red’s service were successfully funded.Thomas added: “Of course no service can guarantee success but we’re confident that redreaders will be able to give third sector organisations the edge via a very affordable and accessible service.”www.redfoundation.org New funding advice service from Red Foundation About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_img The National Funding Scheme, creator of the DONATE arts fundraising platform, and MyCake’s Culture Benchmark, the business data in the arts specialist, are collaborating to understand and utilise cultural data.The two organisations will work to bring together their definitions and data sets so that the detailed data on arts and cultural giving being generated by the DONATE platform can be put into the context of arts business models as articulated by MyCake. It is a case of the Culture Benchmark’s breadth of data being combined with the depth of data that DONATE gathers about casual incremental and digital giving.DONATE platform’s findingsA year after its launch, the National Funding Scheme reports that[list type=”check”]The average donation through the DONATE mobile web platform is £26.58. Amounts range from £3 to £3,75043% of donations are by the mobile app but these account for 87% of the donated amount. The remainder are by text.80% of donations using the mobile web platform have Gift Aid added.38% of donations are from registered users; the remainder are guest donations showing the popularity of casual one-off giving.Of the 59% that identified their tax bracket. 45% pay basic or no tax showing DONATE appeals to all income brackets.[/list] Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Culture Benchmark’s findingsThe MyCake Culture Benchmark’s national data shows that[list type=”check”] In 2011 and 2012 private donations were worth an average of 6.6% and 6.0% of turnover respectively.Whilst the 2013 data set is still changing, as data is submitted, early results show a similar picture.The average Revenue Income for the sample of 341 organisations benchmarked in 2011 was £5,105,870 and thus the value of private donations was, on average, worth approximately £300,000.In 2011 Gift Aid was worth on average 4.0% of turnover.There are marked differences between London and non-London subsets of the data when it comes to private giving.[/list]Sarah Thelwall, founder of MyCake, explained the reasons behind the joint project.“Over the last four years MyCake has built a broad data set focused on detailed income and cost information and it is now widely used by arts organisations, funders and stakeholders who wish to improve the sustainability of their organisation or the sector.“The National Funding Scheme has more detailed insight into the private giving sector than we will ever achieve so it makes perfect sense to combine our breadth with their depth. Getting the datasets to talk to each other is the easy part, now we want to focus on connecting the insight and analysis!” Tagged with: arts data National Funding Scheme MyCake and DONATE partner on cultural data development  51 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Paul Cutts, CEO of the National Funding Scheme, added:“By providing a digital platform, the cultural sector for the first time is able to have statistical insight into mass casual giving.

When media bosses censor their own journalists

Presented by Jorge Burgos and Emy Padilla, the programme is openly critical of President Juan Orlando Hernández’s government.“We call on Canal 6 to resume broadcasting Suelte la lengua without delay,” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “Pressure from the authorities cannot justify depriving Hondurans of a programme that is in the general interest.”Burgos and Padilla have repeatedly been censored by Canal 6’s own management. Their programme, which has often linked banks and commercial enterprises to corruption, has upset some of the TV station’s shareholders.Padilla reports that, in the middle of recording one programme, she was passed a note from the Canal 6 production staff ordering her not to mention a certain subject. Suelte la lengua often has guests who involved in human rights, especially the heads of NGOs and grass-roots organizations.This climate of censorship affects other independent journalists as well. Ricardo Guerra of Actualidad Porteña, a programme broadcast by Teleport Cortés, a regional TV station based in the northern city of Puerto Cortés, has described the problems in this region to Reporters Without Borders.“We are censored by the heads of the media groups,” he said. “This is a new phenomenon. We cannot cover all subjects. Some are off-limits because they jeopardize the economic interests of these media as regards certain companies. Independent journalists who propose a story about the Puerto Cortés authorities are often told ‘We don’t cover that’.”Guerra also said he often received threats or insults by telephone that are directly linked to what he has reported on the air.Honduras is ranked 129th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Logo: Ricardo Guerra, Teleport Cortés Slideshow: Jorge Burgos and Emy Padilla, Canal 6center_img Reports HondurasAmericas April 27, 2021 Find out more May 28, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 When media bosses censor their own journalists RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America News HondurasAmericas News December 28, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Relief at release of Fox News journalists but dismay at Israeli air strike on Reuters vehicle in Gaza

Shortly before freeing them today, the group released a video in which their hostages said they had converted to Islam. After being set free, the two journalists said they had made these statements at gunpoint. Ten journalists have been kidnapped in the Palestinian Territories in the past 12 months.“Hostage-taking is becoming more and more frequent in Gaza, and the hostages are being held for longer periods,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We expect the Palestinian authorities to seriously tackle this problem before one of these adductions ends tragically.”Palestinian website reporter Sabbah Hmaida was injured in the leg and Reuters cameraman Fadel Shana briefly lost consciousness when Israeli aircraft fired two missiles early this morning on their armoured Reuters vehicle as they were following an Israeli incursion into the Gaza Strip. Reuters said signs on the roof and sides clearly showed it was a press vehicle. The Israeli military told the Associated Press the journalists were not targeted intentionally but “they should not have been there” during the operation. “There was no sign on the vehicle, at least we didn’t see any,” an Israeli military spokesman added.Reporters Without Borders has repeatedly condemned the poor judgement shown by the Israeli military during their operations. An Israeli tank seriously injured Palestinian public TV journalist Ibrahim Atla on 26 July.“We propose that the Israeli government should involve third parties – human rights NGOs or the news organisations concerned – in the investigations into this type of blunder because, despite our repeated appeals, no serious investigation has ever been conducted into the many mistakes made by the Israeli army on the Palestinian Authority’s territory,” the organisation said.
