But this isnt the first time Israel has murdered unarmed Gazan civilians.

Blumenthal and Cohen talk about chronicling the Killing of Gaza, beginning in 2014 and give us the context for and sadly recount their expectation of this latest murderous attack on Palestinians by Israel supported by US tax dollars. They give us a chilling accounts of war crimes committed by the Israeli military, and recount the experiences of the survivors just days after escaping indiscriminate shelling, bombings and summary executions. They talk about walking through the rubble of Gazas devastated landscape and their discussions with the survivors of the slaughter who offer them their testimony of the war crimes they experienced, which they long for the world to recognize and prosecute their torturers. Our documentarians, talk about their recordation of the daily struggles of the people of Gaza, as they endure, freezing winters, where babies freeze and sweltering summers without shelter. While Blumenthal and Cohen give voice to the pain of a people under constant siege, they also give voice to the Gazans acts of creative resistance and their reaffirmation of life by artistic expression with the brush, and through literary works to youths break-dancing and rapping their resilience, their potential and resolve to break the occupation. Blumenthal and Cohen explain that the people of Gaza collectively will continue to channel their pain, their anger and energy to the maintenance of their history, the preservation of their culture and the reclamation of their land and for a free, free Palestinian.

Under The Olive Tree: Canadian MPs relaunch Palestine-focused Parliamentary Group, Segment 1

3 months ago
We talked with author and activist, Yves Engler, about his new article "Ottawa’s foreign policy swamp, an unhealthy quagmire". In his article, Yves talks about the 17 internationally-focused associations and groups in the Canadian Parliament and what they reflect about power relations in the world. All these parliamentary bodies are partially supported and funded by the government. One of these groups is focused on Israel, no group is dedicated to Palestine. But, recently, a group of parliamentarians launched their own Palestine-focused group on a voluntary basis, and in March, the group organized a trip to Palestine for Canadian MPs.

This Week In Palestine: Overcoming Zionism: our interview with the late Joel Kovel, Segment 1

3 months ago
This past week we lost a great champion of Palestinian rights, namely Dr. Joel Kovel, who passed away. Kovel was a sharp critic of Zionism, and his meticulously researched books, articles and lectures made him a target of the pro-Israel propaganda machine. Kovel delved deeply into a variety of disciplines, ultimately writing books on several. This breadth is explored at length by Wikipedia's description of his life work https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joel_Kovel). In the context of the then-recent damning report by the internationally respected Justice Goldstone, a self-proclaimed Zionist, and the Orwellian response of our so-called leaders in the U.S., we decided to do an in-depth interview with this famed Jewish professor. His then-recent book is Overcoming Zionism: Creating a Single Democratic State in Israel/Palestine (2007). This seems to have gotten him fired from his longtime professorship at Bard College. We present that interview again today, slightly edited. The interviewers were our colleagues John Grebe and Ken Barney. You will hear the passionate voice of This Week In Palestine's originator, Sherif Fam, at the beginning and end, may he rest in peace.
