“Horrific, unprecedented”: Israel massacres almost 60 Palestinians in Gaza.

14 May 2018

On this episode of The Electronic Intifada Podcast: A report from the Great March of Return, after Israeli forces kill dozens of Palestinians in Gaza; excerpts of talks by Ghada Karmi, Joseph Massad, Ilan Pappe and Salman Abu Sitta.

“It was the bloodiest day in the past two months, since Palestinians started the rally to march for freedom,” Gaza-based writer and professor Refaat Alareer told The Electronic Intifada Podcast on Monday.

Israeli forces massacred almost 60 Palestinian protesters who were marching along the boundaries of the besieged Gaza Strip for what had been billed as the climax of the Great March of Return.

Among almost 2,800 injured, half were shot with live ammunition.

This makes Monday the bloodiest single day since the rallies began on 30 March, calling for an end to Israel’s lethal siege of Gaza and the right of refugees – two-thirds of Gaza’s two million residents – to return to homes from which they were expelled and barred from returning by Israel because they are not Jewish.

The massacre in Gaza coincided with the planned ceremony to open the US embassy in Jerusalem.

Alareer said that Israeli forces started shooting at Palestinians with such brutality that “every single minute, you would hear a shot here or there, and then someone would fall down.”

“The scene was horrific, unprecedented,” he said, as dozens of Palestinians “were massacred throughout the Gaza Strip.”

Alareer said that marchers were able to get close to the boundary with Israel, demanding their right of return to their lands and villages that are just on the other side of the fence – places that Israel has barred them from returning to for seven decades.

“There was determination,” he said. “People really were hoping that something could happen. At least Israel could stop shooting and killing them. At least they were hoping that this day would bring some comfort to the Palestinians in Gaza who were besieged.”

But yet again, he added, “Israel always faces the Palestinian determination and resistance, Palestinian demands of freedom and basic human rights with fire, with bullets, with death and with blood.”

Examining a decolonized future

“Palestine is the patrimony of Palestinians,” historian and geographer Salman Abu Sitta said to an audience at Boston University during the 2013 Right of Return conference.

“Injustice has a short life, and justice will always prevail in the end.”

On 15 May, Palestinians mark the 70th anniversary of the Nakba, when in 1948 Israel declared itself a state and Zionist militias expelled more than 750,000 Palestinians from their lands, homes and properties.

This year, Palestinians in the occupied Gaza Strip have been gathering every Friday since 30 March to participate in activities related to the Great March of Return.

Refugees in Gaza are among a population of about seven million Palestinian refugees, who also live in the occupied West Bank, Syria, Jordan and Lebanon, as well as in the global diaspora.

How should the events of 1948 be examined? What are the prospects for a decolonized future? And how are Palestinians continuing to plan for their return?

In this special segment, we present excerpts of talks on the anatomy of the Nakba, historic and ongoing, by doctor, writer and academic Ghada Karmi; scholar Joseph Massad; and historians and researchers Ilan Pappe and Salman Abu Sitta.

In reading from her recent book, Return: A Palestinian Memoir, Karmi dissected how Palestinian reality is presented – and obscured – by the media.

“This is a settler-colonial project. It was from the beginning. And the people it has colonized, and whose lands it has stolen, are living in a corner of their homeland,” she told an audience at the Palestine Center in Washington, DC, in 2015.

In a speech at New York University in 2016, historian and writer Ilan Pappe explained how the architects of Israel’s settler-colonialist project “found the right moment” to establish their state in 1948.

“Half of Palestine’s villages were destroyed, half of Palestine’s towns were demolished, half of Palestine’s population were expelled and became refugees,” he said.

Pappe added that Israel’s immediate refusal to allow Palestinian refugees to return was backed by the United States, and that support continues 70 years later.

Massad highlighted the call by Palestinian civil society for an international boycott, divestment and sanctions movement. The call “demands an end to Zionist colonization and the reversal of it though the dismantlement of the settler-colonial racial structure that governs Israel and prevents the return of the Palestinian refugees,” Massad said at the 2013 Right of Return conference.

He added that turning Palestinians and Israeli Jews into equal citizens is “the only program for decolonization” and the only condition of – and for – the return of Palestinian refugees.

Today’s lead ‘NY Times’ article on the Gaza massacre is a model of dishonesty.
May 15, 2018

Today’s main New York Times article on Israel’s massacre of Gazan demonstrators — the lead front-page story in the print edition — is a masterpiece of deceit. The article, by David Halbfinger, employs the time tested tools of distortion, including classic Orientalism, dueling narratives, one-sided use of sources, and hiding the perpetrators behind passive sentences, topped off by outright dishonesty.

The distortion starts in the first sentence. “Across the Gaza Strip on Monday morning, loudspeakers on minarets urged Palestinians to rush the fence bordering Israel. . .” An Orientalist gem, insinuating that Gazan protesters are motivated by religious primitivism, instead of Israel’s crushing blockade and regular armed attacks.

“. . where they [the Gazans] were met by army snipers.” “Met” is hardly the appropriate word here, especially after another Times correspondent, Declan Walsh, has already described how far off Israeli snipers shot a woman in the stomach right in front of him on Sunday night.

“At least 58 were killed and thousands injured. . .” Passive voice; conceal the killers.

In paragraph 4, Halbfinger turns explicitly to dueling narratives. “For generations, both sides of the conflict have been locked in competing mutually negating narratives. . .” The implicit question: Who knows which side is right? This is post-modernism gone lethal, a view favored by Western liberals who sense something is terribly wrong but who are too cowardly to criticize Israel. Sometimes, one side of a dueling narrative is fundamentally true, and the other is a pack of lies.

Lower in the article are 4 short paragraphs reported from the standpoint of the Gazan demonstrators themselves.

But then immediately, a reverent respect for the Israeli military’s point of view. For 7 paragraphs, Halbfinger took dictation from the army’s mouthpiece, Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus, who asserted that the Gazans were: “planting or hurling explosives”; flying flaming kites into Israel; trying to slip armed fighters into Israel to “wreak havoc”; launching an armed attack on the border fence; and firing “numerous shots” at Israeli soldiers — all of which amounted to an “unprecedented level of violence.”

Next, stenographer Halbfinger writes that “Israel responded with gunfire and tear gas, and Israeli jets struck five targets in a Hamas military training facility. . .” This is Orwellian. Lt. Col. Conricus makes up or grossly exaggerates Gazan actions, and Halbfinger then calls Israel’s vicious attacks a ‘response’ to things that never happened.

Conricus also alleges that “one Israeli soldier was wounded by shrapnel from what was believed to be an explosive device.” Halbfinger fails to report that if true, this would be the very first injury to any Israeli whatsoever, whether soldier or civilian, in nearly 7 weeks of protest during which Israel has killed 107 Palestinians and injured another 13,000.

You have to pause to see what is happening here. Israel has just committed the biggest single massacre since its 2014 invasion of Gaza. The Times has 3 correspondents in Gaza, including the aforementioned Walsh, Iyad Abuheweila and Ibrahim El-Mughrabi — all of them doubtless risking their lives to report from amid the mass killing, and their shorter secondary article in today’s Times is helpful. But the paper’s main report gives them 4 puny paragraphs and devotes twice as much space to unsubstantiated claims from the proven liars of the Israeli military. This is truly taking “dueling narratives” to ugly ends.

Halbfinger does not quote a single human rights group, not even the respected Israeli organization B’Tselem, which has implored Israel’s soldiers not to fire at the Gazan demonstrators. Palestinians are dying by the dozens and being grievously wounded by the hundreds — Medicines Sans Frontieres said sniper bullets are leaving exit wounds the size of a fist — but Halbfinger did not let the Palestinians speak.

David Halbfinger is a skilled reporter and he must know exactly how he is distorting what is really happening in Gaza. We suspect he is under tremendous pressure — from the Israeli government, from his editors, from some of his readers. Until the pressure to tell the truth increases, he (and his colleagues) will continue to whitewash.

MEDIA BIAS/FACT CHECK
The Most Comprehensive Media Bias Resource 


Electronic Intifada: LEFT BIAS 

These media sources are moderately to strongly biased toward liberal causes through story selection and/or political affiliation.  They may utilize strong loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by using appeal to emotion or stereotypes), publish misleading reports and omit reporting of information that may damage liberal causes. Some sources in this category may be untrustworthy. See all Left Bias sources. 

Factual Reporting: HIGH 

Notes: Electronic Intifada is a news publication and educational resource focusing on Palestine, its people, politics, culture and place in the world. Electronic Intifada has a very strong Pro-Palestinian bias in report choices and does not always cover both sides of the story. There is frequent use of loaded emotional words that are positive for Palestine and negative for Israel. However, Electronic Intifada is generally very well sourced to credible media outlets. In reviewing fact checks we could not find any instance where EI directly failed a fact check from major fact checking sources. We did however find a case where EI refuted a pants on fire claim from Politifact that stated the Baltimore police were trained by Mossad. In their rebuttle, EI is careful to indicate that Mossad did not directly train the Baltimore Police, however they refute that there are not connections based on the defensive style they were trained in and the fact the police had visited Israel twice for training. In the end, Politifact is correct that it is unproven Mossad trained the Baltimore Police, but EI makes a compelling, well sourced rebuttal that there are connections to Israel. The issue with this exchange is the misleading headline used by EI: PolitiFact denies Israeli ties to Baltimore police despite evidence. Politifact’s fact check did not ask if there were Israeli ties, it centered purely on Mossad. Based on this misleading headline, I would rate EI as somewhat mixed for factual reporting despite the use of excellent sourcing in most articles and left biased based on story selection and wording that sometimes amounts to propaganda . (D. Van Zandt 5/13/2016) (Updated (8/3/2017) 

Notes 2: The Electronic Intifada (EI) is a Chicago based publication founded by Ali Abunimah, Arjan El Fassed, Laurie King, and Nigel Parry. EI reports on current news regarding Palestine, primarily the Israeli occupation, and is Pro-Palestinian in its reporting and editorial stance. Looking past the obvious bias, the articles on EI are well written, factual, and well sourced. Despite the quality of the writing, however, the Pro-Palestinian slant of EI earns it a Left Bias rating. (D. Kelley 5/8/2017) 

Notes 3: Electronic Intifada is a Palestinian news and information portal based in Chicago-Illinois. Electronic intifada is a reliable source of information which mainly targets Palestinian affairs, with emphasis on the Palestinian viewpoint. They publish well-sourced news stories from reputable, mostly left leaning news organizations.  We rate this source as left biased due to their story selection, choice of sources and highly factual in reporting. (M. Huitsing 8/3/2017) 

Summary Notes: When multiple reviewers look at a source we average the scores to assign a rating. According to our methodology, Electronic Intifada is classified as left biased with a very strong pro-Palestinian bias. Although there is significant use of loaded words, EI almost always uses strong sourcing within their articles. EI has not directly failed a fact check that we are aware of, though their headlines can sometimes be misleading. Final rating: Left Biased and Factual in Reporting.

The Failures Of Western Reporting in Gaza. (Please share.)
April 03, 2018
Daily Hampshire Gazette

If a Palestinian is killed by an Israeli soldier, the most appropriate thing to do is to call it a “clash.”

If you are a Western journalist and you have to report from Gaza, the best thing to do is to treat the Palestinians as a threat.

Their bodies are weapons, their existence is dangerous. If a Palestinian is killed by an Israeli soldier, the most appropriate thing to do is to call it a “clash.” Clashes take place when two armed forces confront each other.

Unarmed Palestinians are armed by the fact of their existence. If Israeli soldiers shoot to death 15 unarmed Palestinians, then the best way to tell that story is to say that “deadly clashes” took place in Gaza (“Deadly clashes in Gaza mark start of Palestinian campaign,” March 31).

If you are a Western journalist and you have to report from Gaza, don’t talk to any Palestinian officials. Talk only to the Israeli military and to the Israeli government. When the Israeli military says that the Palestinians began the “clash” with rocks and “burning tires,” repeat that as the origin for the Israeli use of tear gas and live fire.

Don’t bother to report what you have seen with your own eyes, or to watch videos on YouTube shot from both sides of the perimeter fence. No need to see that video of unarmed men kneeling down to prayer and then Israeli snipers picking them off one by one. Better to be a stenographer for the Israeli army than to be a journalist of the facts.

If you are a Western journalist and you have to report from Gaza, talk to a few Palestinians who say that they will never give up, that they “have nothing to lose.” Offer no context for these statements, nothing to make these statements of futility make sense. Or to appear sympathetic.

Don’t write about the permanent siege on Gaza – its land and sea borders closed by Israeli authorities. Don’t bother with the documentation from the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, based in Gaza City.

If you read their weekly reports, you will find that the Israeli navy repeatedly has been bombing the Gaza coastline over the past several weeks — including regular attacks on Palestinian fishing boats off al-Sudaniya. There you will find reports of Israeli warplanes striking the Beit Hanoun Services Club stadium in northern Gaza. You will find evidence that the Israeli soldiers have been repeatedly shooting at shepherds in the eastern part of Gaza Valley. Israel will not let international human rights agencies to enter Gaza. Israel does not want this context.

If you are a Western journalist and you have to report from Gaza, don’t ask the Palestinian political groups about the planned six weeks of unarmed protests at the perimeter fence. Don’t bother to report that this is a peaceful protest, something that liberals have often demanded of the Palestinians. Don’t bother to ask why the Palestinian leadership has urged people to be peaceful and why they have asked for this gathering at the fence.

Why mention that March 30 is the anniversary of the 1976 Land Day events in the Galilee, when Palestinians fought to defend their way of life in northern Israel?

Why mention that there is a politics at work here and not merely the instinct of an encaged people?

https://www.commondreams.org/views/2018/04/03/failures-western-reporting-gaza

( Seeing this post, it brought to mind how often I had seen the misuse of the word "clash', by some parties ... to distort facts on the ground, and mislead..)

UK: Jews deliver message of condemnation to Israel

In a message to world leaders, international organization of Orthodox Jews against Zionism reiterates support for Palestine.

16.05.2018

LONDON

The anti-Zionist Neturei Karta organization has delivered a message of support and solidarity to Palestine as well as one of criticism and condemnation to Israel over its treatment of Palestinian civilians.

In a meeting with President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Monday evening, Elahanan Beck, the chief rabbi of Neturei Karta, said “we have to realize and understand -- helping the state of Israel is not in the favor of Jewish people”.

“The Zionists say they want to make a safe haven for Jewish people, they want to help Jews… but this is untrue. The most dangerous place today for Jewish people -- not to speak for Palestinians, but even for Jews -- is in the state of Israel,” Beck said.

Praising Erdogan for withdrawing Turkey’s ambassador to Israel after the opening of the new U.S. embassy in Jerusalem, Beck said: “If you want to help the Jewish people, follow the example of what the Turkish president did: withdraw your ambassador from there and come out in the clear”.

Tensions have risen in the region after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel in December and ordered the opening of a new U.S. embassy in the disputed and occupied city, a decision that has earned him global criticism and has broken many agreements regarding Jerusalem’s status.

At least 62 Palestinian demonstrators on the border between the Gaza Strip and Israel who were protesting the embassy’s inauguration were killed Monday by the Israeli Defense Forces.

The killings have sparked a global outcry, with many world leaders condemning Israel, which claimed it was in self-defense.

“We are against the state of Israel. We are against occupiers, and we have to bring peace to the region,” Beck added.
