7:34 am
and inside israel and quite on the airwaves, is only making things ways into tar kenyan who blogged about life as a migrant worker finds himself in custody. but the authorities have yet to produce a charge. they jing get some help with its propaganda push on sin jack from a band of western influences online. and what do we call home? that's alicia handbook had done a schedule. the viral video that shows the meaning of dispossession in power. 2 weeks of intense, devastating israeli bombing has overwhelmed the gaza strip. 2000000 inhabitants, high rise buildings, housing civilians, and news organizations. this network included have been reduced to rubble, still the israeli government and its military enjoy kind of diplomatic impunity.
7:35 am
some of that has to do with israel's traditional ability to dominate the media space, to focus the narrative on anti him off talking points. but garza is only one part of this rapidly moving story across israel and the occupied territories. palestinians have erupt it in protest. israeli cities like lit and aka have seen more violence, most of it directed at palestinian citizens. and it's organized often with the cover of israeli security forces. some voices on the israeli airwaves who call themselves journalists have been guilty of incitement. the images of inter, communal violence, so close to home have shaken the israeli public in a way that the video from gaza and the west bank failed to do. that's our starting point. this week. the gaza strip, where a cease fire has just come into effect. trying to turn on during my after 11 days of the bombing guys brought to an end by a c. v is really government is still all in on the information among the stories.
7:36 am
it is asking the world to believe that god has only cobra. 1900 testing facility was a legitimate target, along with its biggest book shop. and a matter of fact that the leveling of this 12 story building had nothing to do with the palestinian news organizations and international ones that had offices an intelligence office for the palestinian tariffs organization. how that building plots and organizes the terror acts against israeli. so perfectly legitimate targets the associated press and algebra. 2 key players in documenting this latest war on gaza worth the target. they just happened to have bureaus in the build collateral damage. nothing. there is really narrative, really what you a claim that come out with
7:37 am
a movement that covering the guys had military assets within the building, which device or whatever it is that you believe that that building how come out. everyone knew the secret, so to speak, a p, f, p l, just 0. sorry that they all well know. let me come to the hell my well i critique when you are, you will human scale, which is to hide among the neighborhood, to deter from targeting ad be reality is that there has been cancer investigation into the claim about human. and there have been no way to verify these claims. now imagine if it was the other way around, a mass destroyed high rise and televi unused the justification that it was housing, israeli military officials. and indeed, many israeli military buildings are in central televi building with national guards
7:38 am
. i all kinds, this is safer than others because i presume that joe going bomb them. but the sad and devastating reality is that there is reading a safe space in gaza. how long can you say israel has the right to defend itself? enough of that already against journalist really in fire tower being flattened. that's the message that we're not going to let you control the narrative. we want to control the. 2 israel also targets news content on the middle east. for example, have you watched our report on god's last week? the version posted on youtube might have been preceded by this at, from israel's ministry of strategic affairs. media organizations like al jazeera and a p. have the resources to fight to find new office, replace equip, but small palestinian media outlets do not. they're vital sources of local news
7:39 am
and they've been targeted repeated. and they also have to rebuild their offices and went from scratch and buy expensive equipment that was low and replenish all concepts and totally destroyed. and the smaller policy media outlets have played a vital role in telling the world what is really going on in gaza. israel invest a lot of money communicating with the outside world. there's a term in hebrew for this called has a broad has broad means explanation. and that's really what someone like mark reg as who is a professional diplomat is being sent to do when he goes in. is interviewed on and are we didn't, what is conflict on the country? we took a number of steps. exactly. we could about the for the ser, up to, to try to deescalate the steps of the u. s. government price the small but unfortunately come up with hell. beverage on initiating is called his job is to explain to the broader world why israel is doing what it's doing. but i think that
7:40 am
what we've been beginning to see over the last few days is that there's talking points aren't really working. and i, yeah, a story that was shut off in east jerusalem with the protest over the me expulsion of palestinians from their homes to make away for jewish israelis. and then in golf, gaza when the bombing baker has had a poisonous effect in israel, it's in a mixed cities like lynn, aka, and just the communal violence. the public lynch captured on camera. some of them broadcasts live on is really television. have gone both with michigan, but there is no palestinian equivalent for the mobs of armed israeli settlers that were bust into those cities. allowed him by israeli police. israeli reporters are free to hold power to account and on domestic political matters usually did. but
7:41 am
their journalism on palestinian issues pertaining to the occupation is far less reliable and much more party put the country on a war footing and many will tow the line. and then we be talking have my dog view heart of the state on channel car, because palestinians with the enemies who just prior to interviewing college indian journalist, rama eunice, asked repeatedly on the air. lucky for me, if it was time for the israelis to reload good. my son is mom and i get a little bit of guinea. might've been that much i say like lady exhort when i confronted him about that. he said that no, but the all for me was a question. now we know these fixed right. there is
7:42 am
a question which is a fair question, and there is a way to type under the guise of i'm on full mental should for him, you would deem shuttle cream, but theme and machine machine with up. so they are thumbs up, thumbs, barometer of it below that them loma, didn't get that. the joy side is the one with the weapon, the video officer in front of me and me see if you look it up, a block of you know, out, look, pete, they will do some looking for the fall for headline. it's an inflammatory kind of coverage. a way of justifying violence and repression of palestinian protests and even a phyllis appeared to supply my name. i mean to say that that much, i think she sent me lawsuit in detroit. so it was really generally when there is more report sort of falling line behind the government team building one of the problems of the team of be will be by the middle of mostly reproducing the talking points that the idea spokes person has given them. but they sort of go the extra
7:43 am
mile and begin to call for military action themselves. the for me going to go to the base of our vehicles on wednesday. oh, israel is up against some inconvenient facts and figures about its occupation and the palestinians it dominates across their historical usually when israel wages war on god, these fires can taken weeks to go into effect even months. this one took just $1111.00 days of death and destroying, brought to an end as power steering and by mass mobilization and a general strike inside israel and across the occupied territories. the trophies in stone is the, the blogs that fell on god could not stop back normalization because palestinians don't need to be on the streets to do. not anymore. all they need is
7:44 am
a phone and they're cut my blaze ation across the colonized. palestine from the river is really important because it's unprecedented suddenly in my generation in miss so 5th grade, a presentation of the palestinian people were still able to come together for which had cooled against ethnic cleansing against settler colonialism. divided by viola is all about jury scrimmage. you have guess what in fighting women i know in mind and all for the tv present, those are fighting against my father. that is where the police officer is what he did when the pilot says that and what do they do after they after they see that they take revenge. what we're seeing now in the proof that we haven't, well, you know, struggle cause it's been
7:45 am
a much alive and kicking and it's being led by us. you don't need the world to come in 3, all right, we can do it ourselves. all we need from the world is to be aware of what's happening to us and to apply a little bit more pressure on is when you stop with crimes against me in the arab golf state of guitar. a kenyan security guy who also blogged about life as a migrant worker in guitar was arrested earlier this month. he's still in custody. joanna, who has been tracking this story. joe, what do we know about this case? while the security guards name is mark on the dolly, as you said, a kenyan and one of the many foreign workers who make up the vast majority of guitars, population and before his arrest. the dalai under the pen name, noah about migrant workers in katara. on may, 5th, a category official conformed to all desert that quote, but ali was taken into custody and placed under investigation for violating katara
7:46 am
security laws and regulations over no details were given on his whereabouts at his well being or whether or not he had access to a lawyer in the absence of those details. what do we know about what he was blogging about? well, according to human rights groups, amnesty international. but ali was quote on the front line of the fight to reform guitars, labor laws, and his blogs focused on issues like long working hours, low wages, poor working conditions unsuitable accommodation. again, at this stage, we do not know whether or not his arrest was in any way related to his writings. the critics have said that this case is a clear example of the limits to freedom of speech in a tar, which was a fun this network on his era in particularly the sensitivity around migrant workers. and the football world cup is coming up in could turn next year. so all eyes are on that country. yes. and, and a, have been numerous media reports about that among migrants working on the
7:47 am
construction of the stadiums for the world cup. but kentucky has said that he has introduced a series of reforms to it's labor laws, which an international labor organization has called historic, including minimum wage from migrant workers. but human rights organizations say that katara still has a long way to go. and with the tournament just over a year away, it seems very likely that this is going to remain a contentious issue. ok, thanks john. it's been nearly 5 years now since the chinese communist party's campaign of mass internment and forest labor began infringing. we've reported on beijing's propaganda over stories of an estimated 1.5 to 3000000 weaker muslims, and other minorities being sent to internment camps. beijing started with a strategy of denial on the existence of the camps, producing documentary, showing happily reformed wiggers. then came a more aggressive approach strictly controlled access for foreign journalists,
7:48 am
threats made against critical reporters. it is clear that a new phase of official spin is now underway. chinas, adding some western faces to the mix. white ones online influencers who contend that the thin jang story is being overblown by the western media. that reports of all those people being put away are either just flat out false or if true, represent nothing more than a proportionate legitimate response to a national security. listening posts to mean oxy robbie, now, on the western voices contesting claims of a genocide infringement. what's up, guys? i'm coming at you from china. and in today's episode, i'm going to be talking about like china, right? you said that this is a new america thing and it has 1400000000 people and it has a very vibrant internet. it's a fascinating time to be a sign of file. there's been a spike, an interest in all things, china,
7:49 am
your office, all china is that where a new log had been. indian media has erupted with the chinese sentiment sweeping invasion today. the for, along with boosting journalism, academic study about the country, it's also given a new prominence to a nice group of china watches aiming to understand the country from the inside. when you hear the word, time was the 1st thing that comes and who denounce the mainstream western consensus on china, china for the past couple of months. these particular voices have all been speaking about one topic. what's guys coming at you from cash. are ancient city in shin jones, there's a way like a reason why western governments like for slave concentration council genocide, when they're talking about managing junk china, everyone, i finally run over the call to pharmacy. as soon as the 1st thing i noticed about
7:50 am
the video from rob dollar is the there are a lot of propaganda messages and right up. this is great in visit a cotton farm and change out. they're using drones to sprinkle pesticide on the field, like all of the stuff to kind of prove that, you know, there is no slave labor here. breaking news guys. they're forcing drove to work here in the cars to feel as if she's young. if you didn't know anything about was happening and change young you think? oh, great farmer family are pretty prosperous lenny willis, sugar money. i shall use for julia. new machine for tea. sure. when it was over. so there are a number off foreigners, many of them may, some china that post these videos, some on chinese platform such as cpd, but many on youtube as well because they do want to target audiences outside of china. you know, one of the things that strange about being a foreigner who loves china is when i go to the west,
7:51 am
i become an unofficial spokesman for china. one thing i want to highlight as that it's very hard to say how much of the feedback is actually paid for by the chinese state of self managed online commentators. systems that the party state employees would also send out task to people to know amplify something. the post something comment on something. influencers like canadian, daniel dumble, is it a scholar or the british father, son, jewel lee and all the bad? it have followers in the millions. on the video sharing site billy billy picked up unwinnable chinese version of twitter. no one has provided any evidence that the chinese government has directly paid these influences to turn out their videos. the blogger themselves, recently, in a curiously simultaneous bush posted videos refuting allegations that they are paid by the chinese communist parties. the ccp know,
7:52 am
we are not paid by the ccp to make specific positive content about china. what is clear, however, is that being approved of these messages? why else would these commentators be getting air time on state onto tv channels? daniel very much. you're welcome to the show. thanks very much for having me. i have been approach recently by quite a few media outlets and this is the only one i chose to go on because the message down in dublin requested an interview, get a response to japan appears to be his feeble broadcast. he's also been endorsed by china's ministry of foreign affairs. at the end of march, an online discussion, he hosted about accusations of genocide and in john was plague at one of the military press briefings. we have a precedent for fig propaganda created to serve american political interests. that video was been treated by spokesperson, watching one of the most prominent pieces of the chinese government. i think there are a couple of different reasons why the chinese government is pushing back so hard in
7:53 am
recent months on what's happening in john. first and foremost, we're starting to see some more serious steps in the pursuit of investigations into what's happening in young you through a body like the un human rights council. and i think the chinese government feels an overwhelming urge to push back against that. there's been more of a coordinated western effort the u. s. e u u k. the canada they've issued sanctions against chinese officials, several western countries as openly called what's happening to the weaker genocide . so as we see, a level of coordination, dr. among western allies, china is ending up their propaganda. so the idea that the chinese government has to
7:54 am
have certain points conveyed by foreigners, rather than by saying it's i'm solved, is actually a pretty old one. you have directive from the 60 used by him out to don't himself to say, you know, we all know china as the center of the world revolution. but do we have to have poor nurse say it for us? because that way it's going to be more credible and the basic logic still holes. that doesn't mean chinese officials have retreated media. on the contrary, as pressure about the situation in saint john has intensified in recent months, beatings counter attack has become more forceful. to the primary thing that the chinese communist party wants to sit in more human rights activists. journalists to do is to just shut up. so any kind of leverage they can use on people they will. there was the case recently where 2 weaker women were interviewed on the b c. and they talked about, you know, the rape that happens in the camps. and the chinese,
7:55 am
they were media went and found the family of one of these women. and they made her family essentially denounce her on camera, whistle the chinese government and its allies pushback head against organizations like human rights watch. or researchers like adrian then or vicky she was always going to show you and that she would and ponder yet. but i have to say that i think that for, for human rights watch, the single biggest frustration is that, you know, nobody from the chinese government has the guts to sit down and talk with us on the fact. instead, president season things government plays the. what about them? cod on human rights abuses and legal double standards in the western world. to me. oh, let's look up to him when he's out bank jack chicken. it's
7:56 am
a tactic that it's rather than informed but western states sanctioned crime was illegal. imprisonments give aging and its influences of choice. a lot to work with . this is a very weird point that i hear a lot of anti chinese people pushing china's very aggressive. and this is very bizarre to hear coming from americans. because while the united is in multiple wars simultaneously, they, china is in 0 wars, they're taking legitimate harnesses from the us government and trying to say, just because the u. s. government has these issues, nothing, nothing that has been so far reported about the weaker. so can possibly be true, it's fairly ironic because it can be angry at what's west, and you can also be angry at what china. these don't have to be usually explicit.
7:57 am
but there are course the parties they does now discover at these groups and trying to integrate them into their messaging because they're bringing it across with teen message. don't look at us, look at america. ah. and for those who insist on looking at china, there are videos out there. just don't mistake what you're watching for journalism job. so the best way to go and live like a cause and farmer actually, i think i'll fit in quite well because a lot of people tell me i look like she's young. if it was in journalism is going to be leading would be looking to control it or not promoting and finally, last week we ran that video, the one that went viral, of an israeli man telling a palestinian family to leave their home in east jerusalem, telling them that if he didn't steal it from other israeli would, given everything that's happened since it is worth remembering, that's where this current story, the bombing of gaza, the communal fighting. got it. start on the notion of home palestinian filmmaker,
7:58 am
omar ramo, has produced a simple, powerful video on dispossession. and what it means, depending on which community you call home, in the holy 6000000 views and counting was the next time here at the listening post . sort of the dog, the exactly, you know, i know how much you've been most i should be good enough. well, i knew that or
7:59 am
this actually should have been done. hey, sergio. hey, showed you that i see the lay of humble i wouldn't have done anything that we did by the only thing that had them knew will as well as a mental doctor. now, with the special for decades, criminals made millions tracking drugs through thailand. 11 east explore is where the country has now become the 1st, in se, asia legalize medical marijuana. on al jazeera, the world of high frequency share trading, exposed. i had this engine that was basically trading. i couldn't last $30000000.00 as a terrifying experience. how artificial intelligence as rates for stakes and risks
8:00 am
on the money markets. there's markets go faster, faster. we're opening up the possibility for an instability, for no money bought on our job here i the root causes of the conflict, remain the occupation default if displacement the un agency, if a palestinian says the cycle of violence will return unless the underlying issues of the israel palestine conflict are resolved ah, 11 o'clock this is out there at live it from also coming up. israeli jewish visitors return to.
