This episode of Salaam Shalom: Report on Palestine/Israel airs Jon Pullman's searing documentary Children in Chains, which documents the arrest, incarceration and cruel treatment, including torture, of Palestinian children at the hands of Israel's military justice and prison system. Between 2000 and 2011 alone, 7,500 Palestinian children were arrested, detained or imprisoned by Israel's occupation regime. The second half of our program will focus on the growing BDS movement, with a report on Israeli Apartheid Week worldwide, which is taking place in February and March; a performance piece by Palestinian-American poet Remi Kanazi; and a report from the Real News Network on the Israeli government's growing unease at the success of BDS and its efforts to slander and suppress it. Special thanks to Danny Weiss, co-producer and technical director, and Jamie Brooks, webmaster.
