Emma Hurd put together an amazingly strong segment about Islamic Palestinian violence against Christians and against women.

She went into a Moslem village in Palestine where she interviewed the hostile family of a young Moslem woman. Poor girl had been murdered in a family honor killing. She had gotten pregnant to a Christian man.

What made this so strong was that she found that everyone in the village was ready to justify. Not one voice spoke out in condemnation. Amazing.

Emma's story was broadcast yesterday, but only once as far as I can tell. Then it seems to have totally disappeared. I thought it was one of the bravest and most informative pieces of reporting to have come out of the middle east for a long time.

Anyone else see it? And does anyone have any thoughts about why such a powerful and unusual piece of reportage disappeared from the screens so quickly?

How can I reach Emma to congratulate her and ask these questions?

A very interesting investigative reportage .

Congratulations to Emma Hurd.

May be the story had been removed as a result of pressure

operated on Skynews editors, by those who were annoyed

from the story ??
