This episode of Salaam/Shalom: Report on Palestine/Israel investigates the charge that Israel is an apartheid state, not only in regard to its policies in the occupied territories, but within the state’s 1967 borders.  We will hear from commentators and activists on this question, including Abby Martin of Russia Today, Omar Baddar from Massachusetts, B’Tselem (the Israeli human rights’ association), the Apartheid Adventures video project, and Shir Hever, an economist and researcher with the Alternative Information Center in Jerusalem and Beit Sahour.  

This program also features two reports from Al Jazeera on life in Gaza today, on the one-year anniversary of Israel’s massive attack last July (Operation Protective Edge), plus a short but powerful Israeli documentary, Disregarding Gaza, on the calculated absence of accurate reporting on Gaza and Palestinians in Israel’s media.

The program closes with a disturbing report, produced by the on-line network AJ+, on the dangerous avocation of being an anti-war activist in Israel given the rise of neo-fascist, racist, and ultra-nationalist groups committed to Jewish political and racial supremacy.

Produced with facilities provided by Vermont Community Access Media (VCAM).
