The latest edition of Salaam Shalom: Report on Palestine/Israel will focus on Israeli war crimes committed in Gaza in the summer of 2014 during Operation Protective Edge. This matter took on new resonance of late with the release of a report by the Israeli anti-occupation organization Breaking the Silence (BTS). The report consists of testimonies by nearly 70 Israeli soldiers and officers who served during last year’s war on Gaza. We will feature videotaped testimonies recorded by BTS of two Israeli soldiers who witnessed and participated in war crimes against Palestinian civilians in Gaza. We will also air a report on the BTS findings by The Guardian, offer a blistering condemnation of Israeli war crimes by Professor Cornell West, and present a “primer” on besieged Gaza by the AJ+ media project. This program will close with an eloquent and uncompromising description of life and resistance in Gaza and of Israeli occupation and violence by Dr. Mads Gilbert, a surgeon who has volunteered in Gaza’s hospitals since 1981.

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