where the chain of command, it seemed like hide it covered up. what's your take on why they've gotten it so wrong? that to me is political malpractice, the bottom line on us politics and policy and the impact on the world on out his era. ah, hello, i'm richard ginsberg and you're at the listening post. we're breaking format this week with a special program on palestine and israel. the violence that spiraled through the month of may the dispossession of palestinians from jerusalem. the blood that was shed at the alex a mosque the renewed brutal onslaught on garza and the stories of resistance all sounded uncomfortably familiar. but for a change, it seemed like the world was listening. watching this program is about who they're listening to. young palestinians asserting themselves on line and penetrating the mainstream media by documenting their realities,
human rights organizations. finally, seeing legacy media outlets adopting the kind of language terms like apartheid that apply to the occupation. a few days after the cease fire in gaza, we spoke with 2 palestinians who have tilted international attention towards their struggle from garza photographer, or some solid whose image is captured. the bombings and the after effects. but we start with shape shot, our resident and activist mona al kurt, who showed down with armed jewish settlers who were backed by israeli police, put her east jerusalem neighborhood on the map when watching when the elk heard keep in mind. she is 23 years old. 8 i breaking news and her night in israel police are bracing for more pre test and clashes with palestinians today.

interrogated by the israelis since the so called cease fire went into effect. torak nerf has been following the story, forrest torak, what's behind this latest crackdown on palestinians, one of the israeli saying about, well, in the case of mental curds and her brother. hum mad, they're accused of things like participating in riots or disturbing the peace. but there really is no peace for palestinians. as you mentioned, ordinary people, activists and journalists are being rounded up violently, often in full view of t. v cameras. the israeli police have said it openly, they're out to restore to terrance and in jerusalem. we've seen what that me not one simply a palestinian reporter without their arabic was hospitalized after this encounter with is radio security forces. and here is out there as giovanni bailey, a reporter with more than 20 years experience in jerusalem. her hand was broken by
israeli forces and she was assaulted in the back of a police car. this was what she was told when she arrived at the police station. it's one of the soldiers told me, and we will let you shut off. you all this al jazeera here on the gold. so that all is eunice, which setup. if we let's, and 0. the silent every one will set. the israelis clearly don't like the coverage of the suppression, but how do you stop the messengers when there are so many of them? well, with more violence, more rest, more intimidation, which will only generate more headlines. it seems completely illogical, but here's the thing up until now that strategy has worked. israel's occupation settlement policy. it's building demolitions. they are illegal, but they've been persisted with because of international impunity. but the
narrative abroad, if not the politics is starting to shift and not in israel's favor. just this week, more than 250 journalists from some of the top media outlets in the world find a letter addressed to their own industry, saying the quote, sanitizing of israel, systematic oppression of palestinians must stop. and this aspect is telling richard a number of reporters who signed that letter from outlet flight washington post cnn and a b c did. so anonymously calling for fact based reporting on palestine, especially in the us media can be professionally costly, even career and the letter size roast groups like human rights watch embed, saelens that have joined palestinians in use in times like apartheid and ethnic supremacy. it says jonas need to examine whether their coverage reflects that reality. thanks to her. human rights groups are another critically important source
of news, content and context on this story. but seller is in israeli human rights organization, the documents violations in the occupied territories. its executive director joins us now. are guy l odd, thanks for speaking with us here at the listening post today. thank you for having me. we heard earlier in the program about mona and mohammed al cord, the video testimony that they've been providing. that's all over social media. how much of that material are israeli audience to see? is it making any kind of impact there? very little, if any at all. and this is just like a very typical situation where the media in israel, almost all of it, except very few other examples. it tends to cover things in a very one directional fashion, including for instance, on the recent assault, the round bomb beings on the gaza. what the public here sees is very one sided.
rockets being fire that is very towns and i was 0 coverage of the situation in gaza or in the west bank or an eastern loosen him. it's not the result of some, you know, censorship, it's a result imposed by the government. it is a result of self censorship by the really media that is choosing only to tell him part of the story, but far from the entire story silencing the aspects of that as soon human rights abuses while the bombing in gaza has stopped. for now, there's really been no cease fire for ordinary palestinians in israel itself. police have rounded up hundreds of palestinians citizens arrested many of them, some for simply posting an image or an opinion online. your organization monitors human rights. what does best seller make of the measure? as the israeli authorities have been taking under what the israeli authorities call operation law and order. and it's an excellent point, and i,
i hope that it's one that could be appreciated by your view, viewers, that for palestinians living under israeli apartheid, there are not a single 2nd of a ceasefire. oh, there is always one form or another in which would assume rights are under assault, visor the authorities be inside the green line and said is, are proper or in occupied and illegally. next is through selim or in the west bank or in deb located gaza strip. so there are the moments the days sometimes the weeks in which there is visible violence, bombings, killings, and so on. television, what you put a good little then little little be flu. and then there is international media attention as indeed there should be. but when the cameras turn off, but athenians continue to be subject to daily routine, mundane. bureaucratic is really state violence through the imposition
of travel restrictions and the needs for permits and the knowledge that if a family member is killed or injured, then the security forces that do it will enjoy almost blanket impunity. and the 1000000 other ways in which for the seniors are abused day in and day out and to suppress of reality. and most of the time it's invisible but for, for the world. but for the people that are living under the receiving edge of this reality, it's relentless and it will not stop until we see structural change as part of what you call your camera project. that cell has been working with palestinian citizens across the west bank and jerusalem to film and document abuses. mona and mohammed al kurt were involved as early as 2011. they were just 14 years old at the time. how does video documentation help expose the everyday violence of the occupation?
yeah, so we've introduced about just over 10 years ago. it also the ability to have video footage because there's an ongoing is really propaganda effort to dismiss anything that a pedestrian says as somehow false, even if you have a number of witnesses and medical records and so on. so they'll be the suge effort to dismiss and discredit. so we were hopeful that with video footage the dots, it would changed out reality that had it now and so on that now them is still an ally to let the dash i so so we can see how them differ. and on the one hand, i think it's been a very significant success much thanks to day courage and commitment of put a student volunteers that have been doing this effort to try and just document their lived experience through these video cameras. pay on sunday thing um and
it is your serial $1000000.00, but at the same time, it's also been another 10 years of occupation, a fresh and impunity for his rallies and apartheid that's. that's the reality. you just used the word apartheid this year, beth cell, m joint palestinian rights groups in using that term to describe israel's policies . you were criticized when you did that human rights watch has since joined you in doing so. why is it so important that journalists and opinion makers hovering this story, use that word apartheid? i think 1st and foremost, it's important because it's correct and a reality needs to be described in the correct way. and the analysis needs to be done on the basis of facts and not on the basis of wishful thinking. and as long as people around the world continue describing the situation and here in
a way that's untethered from reality, to pretend that there are 2 regimes here and democracy inside the green line in a temper occupation on the other side of the green line. as long as that's the model democracies plus temper occupation, then people are doing the wrong analysis and arriving at the wrong conclusions. no, there are no 2 regimes here. there is one regime within the river and to see that one of the government of israel that applies the same underlying logic of advancing joyce supremacy at the expense of the rights of the stallions. this has a name, the name for that is apartheid. and we need to be accurate, precise, and honest in addressing this injustice. if we want to end organizations like best selling human rights watch, amnesty international, through your work, you help provide the frameworks for the news narratives on palestine and israel. you see your work show up in the journalism from your vantage point. is the
narrative change in the international narrative on this story? yes, i think we are seeing those changes. and i think 1st and foremost are the result of the, the work of policy and activists that have been advancing this. and i hope that we had some modest contribution in there, sir, and disregard it's late. it, i'd say better late than never a but i think we are seeing that this is a, this is happening. and i think in a situation which is overall bleak, like this needs to be spelled out it we shouldn't be, you know, overly optimistic with regard to the situation here. we have a very successful from its own perspective, oppressive regime. again, not only because of its ability to oppress, but because if its ability successfully for decades to get away with it with impunity, we've seen this pattern before, the unrest, the escalation, garza gets bomb, the disproportionate number of palestinian casualties,
the eventual cease fire. so how should news organizations treat this story now that things of quote, unquote returned to normal. don't look away and this has happened already. so i mean, if i think about garza and i think about 20082009 then 2012, and then 2 years later and, and a couple of weeks ago. and yes, there was a time of attention and attention shifted away, which means the 2000000 people just went back to living in an unbearable blockade. and being cut off from the rest of the planet. and so much human suffering in such an frenzy, injustice. and yet again and again and again and again and again, the attention shifted away. this is not a domestic israeli issue. this is one of the most international issue in the
context of human rights in a 21st century. it has to be addressed internationally. and it will not to be addressed internationally. if the media doesn't keep its eye watchful on the situation, even when things go back to what is wrongly often called the status quo, it is never static. it is always the advancements of the privileges of joyce's varies at the expense of the rights of foot estonians. ah, it's a call it ready for the morality of international public opinion to wake up to the injustice here, to wake up. these are the apartheid and to demand change. and this can happen through the commitment of the media not to walk away from what's happening here because it doesn't walk away from what's happening here for even a single 2nd for put stands living under this reality. how guy a lot of bad sell him. thanks for speaking with us here at the listening post today . thank you so much. don't walk away or look away as he put it,
a message for the global media and those who rely on it for their news and information. palestinians know that their fate will not be determined in jerusalem or television. that international media outlets based in western capitals are the ones that have to stay on this story. if real change is to occur. and if the global media turn their attention elsewhere as they are want to do, there's always social media. it's become the place to go for news content that holds power to account and compels mainstream news organizations to do the same. you've been watching a special edition of our program on palestine and israel will see you next time. here with the listening. ah oh, there's a lot more to al jazeera than t v with our website mobile app,
