Gulf newspapers agree they aren't anti-Zionist enough

Just a small indication of Arab press objectivity:
The Gulf Press Association (GPA) meeting in the Bahraini capital on Wednesday agreed on several moves in its annual review of the GPA’s activities.

The GPA final statement said that the Assembly also discussed wider issues of concern in the Arab world, “notably the continued enmity and studied and programmed Judaization by the Zionist enemy in Jerusalem, at Al-Aqsa Mosque and in occupied Palestinian lands”.

The statement said that the meeting called upon Arab and Islamic governments to take a “more resolute stand against these malicious plans and protect Islamic and Christian holy sites in Jerusalem and Palestine”.

According to the statement, the Assembly also called upon Gulf and Arab newspapers to “intensify their campaigns to expose the Zionist plans and confront them by all means which preserve the status of Jerusalem for the Arab and Islamic peoples”.
They also voted to censure Saudi Arabia for its Muslimization of Mecca and Medina, and they condemned its apartheid system of not allowing any non-Muslims in those cities whatsoever, especially in light of how Medina used to have a substantial Jewish population that was slaughtered by Mohammed.

Just kidding!
