As Israeli forces raid Jenin and murder nine Palestinians – making it ten in a day – will we see any international condemnation? And what’s the role of the media here?
Yet the killing of journalist Shireen Abu Akleh is yet another reminder that Israel operates with complete impunity. As the months are passing, we can see no meaningful external investigation is taking place.
Israeli groups and their supporters seem to be outraged by Farha, a Palestinian movie that shows the violence by Zionist forces that took place when the state of Israel was being established.
I invite you to deconstruct this criticism.
How the Israeli press is being treated – the fact that not all football fans want to talk to them at the World Cup in Qatar – reminds us to check how Israel itself treats Palestinian journalists. In short, that treatment is so bad that this comparison can hardly be made.
2022 has been the deadliest year for Palestinian children in the West Bank in 15 years. To fully understand how the Israeli state policies work, we have to understand how they affect – not unintentionally, but by design – the Palestinian children.
November 29 is the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. What does it mean, really? And what can we do? I suggest two things.
Behind what might appear as political representation and diversity we might find something quite not right. The representation itself can become a façade – so we have to be careful. In my episode, I talk about the new British Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, the violent immigration policy of Lithuania, and what Israel attempts to remind the world of.
What is there to say after Israel’s most recent bombing of Gaza?
No matter how heart-breaking this devastation was, it didn’t reveal anything new about how Israel operates – nor how the world reacts when Palestinians under siege are being killed.
Joe Biden is on a trip to the Middle East: he’s visiting Israel and Saudi Arabia. What this shows is how little respect – if at all – his presidency has for human rights. Apartheid, military occupation, killings of civilians, murdering of journalists – everything goes. And there is definitely no room for Palestinian human rights.
Although it was never “hidden” for the ones who are interested in Palestine, Israeli state violence can’t be more obvious now. Not to acknowledge it is not a matter of access to knowledge; it’s a matter of choice.
