4:33 am
hi, i'm sandra gartman. welcome to portal your gateway to some about the or as best online content. this week we focus on israel and palestine. the flare up of violence we saw last month, turned to god into a war zone. battered by 11 days of israeli or strikes. in this episode of portal, we're going to take a look at some of the bigger issues behind it all, including the messy politics that play we'll get a sense of what it's like to work as a past. any journalist in the west bank dealing with a daily challenges of these really occupations. and we go cycling and gaza to hear about the challenges enjoys of one young man trying to fulfill a sporting dreams. there are lots of reasons why the fighting we saw may between israelis and palestinians got so bad, but it's not the 1st time we've seen an escalation and violence like that and of
4:34 am
where to avoid seeing it again. something will have to change. but change often comes down to politics. so what are the politics at play here? that's the question my team and i asked on start here an online show that breaks down the big news stories. the let's talk about israel and palestine. the bombs and the rocket to stop falling with the problems that led to the recent violence haven't gone away. they've been announcements about reconstruction and vague commitments about improving lives. leaders on both sides will need to chart a better course. starting by making real improvements in the lives of people in israel, gaza, and the west bank. but there is no, not even a hint of a long term solution. and the political backdrop doesn't look good for finding one
4:35 am
. we have a clinical crisis and political crisis, costing authority political crisis and then there's the americans and their relationship with israel. if not one of the us having leverage over israel is simply one of the united states. the israel cheerleader when it comes to israel, palestine and the politics at play. here are 3 things you need to know. the. the 1st thing you need to know is that palestinian leadership is divided on one side. there's hamas, they control the gaza strip. it's their military wing that was firing some of the rockets, it israel, the us and israel consider hamas terrorist and got her masters led by your house in war. then there's the palestinian authority, the p a was set up in 1994 and it's effectively like the past in government. but today, with, from often control of gather the p, a control is very limited,
4:36 am
except for parts of the west bank and even there, it's israel as the occupying power that has control over most things. since 2000 and 5 pm has been controlled by fata, a political party led by mahmoud abbas. he's the palestinian president and represent palestine on the international stage. this split between hamas and the palestinian authority creates all sorts of problems and raises the question of who actually represents the palestinians. this is a really difficult question to answer. and the reason is difficult to answer is because we have not had elections in more than 15 years to be a we're going to hold elections in may. but mahmoud abbas counsel done with the last minute that it was because of israeli restrictions on campbell training. and voting, unoccupied, east jerusalem. but some help in, in question if that the whole story i don't think that we should minimize what it means to have elections in jerusalem. that being said, i think that the elections were canceled because the bass was incompetent with the
4:37 am
outcome is long as the palestinians politically divided between them off and graphically divided between the west bank and gaza strip city. no hope for any serious negotiations. it's also been israeli policy to perpetuate this division. now this political division has existed for a long time. but it now seems there's another center of political power that's getting stronger the power of the people on the street and across social media ah, different humanitarian. and this is about standing up for the margin. going to be very, very important. the last few weeks we have seen palestinian organize and coordinate resistance all over the world, much of inside palestine. we were all connected to each other. people are opening
4:38 am
their eyes and literally saying that, you know enough to me as a people are united behind one idea and that when ideas that we want to be free. so that's an overview of the situation on the palestinian side. the 2nd thing you need to know is that only israeli side politics are also in a mess. in march, israel held is 4th election in 2 years without a clear result. there were weeks of deal making and now benjamin netanyahu is being pushed out after 12 years and power. his opponents formed a coalition with natalie bennett the far right politician. that to be the new prime minister. he supported by ja la pete, a centrist who is expected to take over his prime minister in 2 years. this is essentially an 8 party coalition. and the only thing the 8 parties were able to agree upon is the removal of benjamin netanyahu from office. so how does all this play into the israeli palestinian issue? but of course it's hard to definitively. the issue hasn't come up much in any of
4:39 am
the recent election campaigns. and most israelis support keeping things with the palestinians pretty much as they are. but here's what we know about the new leaders . natalie bennett is in many ways more hard life, more ideological the nation. yahoo, he is somebody who has explicitly called for the formal attic station of much of the west. but yeah, the pit is totally a dub. you haven't really pushed for a change in israel policies toward the occupation. if you want to look at the full glass is promising that things are not going to deteriorate between israel and the palestinian. if you want to look at the half empty glass, it's a prescription for perpetrating the status for. okay, so on the palestinian side, we've got a major political split. and on the israeli side we've got chronic political uncertainty. even with the new coalition. it doesn't exactly look great when it
4:40 am
comes to finding the kind of committed, maybe even visionary political action needed to bring last in peace. and it's not clear that this, this war broke out. you can get a tune. you can stop the fighting. i don't think you can resolve the underlying issues, but you should in the piece, make an effort to follow. try to plant the seeds that will get you to a better place. now, the other big factor and all this is the usaa relationship with israel. because the 3rd thing you need to know is that the u. s. has always been israel's biggest supporter, the more affirming the friendship between israel and the united states, the americans, israel's oldest and best friend in the world. the united states is proud to stand with you as your strongest ally and your greatest friend. i will, where you stand with our great friend and partner,
4:41 am
the state of israel for palestinians and often feels like this friendship comes at their expense. and under president trump, it reached a whole new level. he recognized jerusalem is the capital of israel and move the u . s. embassy there from tele vive. this ignored palestinian claims to east jerusalem as their capital. he pulled more than $200000000.00 in a to the palestinian authority. and the u. s. had opposed is really settlement, but trump reversed that policy. so going forward, the question is how the biden administration might do things differently. and so far there has been a change of tone compared to the trump years. i'm here to underscore the commitment of the united states to rebuilding a relationship with the palestinian authority and with the palestinian people. when israel started bombing garza and made it took 8 days for bite into express support for the fire, the us also blocked 3 attempts by the un security council to condemned violence.
4:42 am
and around the same time news broke about a u. s. weapons sale to israel worth 700. $35000000.00. the faster the matter is, we are still sending $3800000000.00 to the israeli government and military funding every single year. and the overwhelming majority of congress is unwilling to put even the most basic conditions on that aid. but when it comes to us support for israel, we've recently seen a lot more open criticism. we must condition a to israel and compliance with international human rights in the apartheid. many members of congress half instead falling back on a blanket statement defending its rails airstrikes against civilians under the guise of self defense. the idea that it's even remotely controversial to call what israel has imposed on palestinians a form of apartheid is laughable. but does the us leadership have any appetite to really deal with the underlying issue? it seems to by strategy, the biden policy is to put
4:43 am
a lid on this conflict and not even try to make the effort strong solve it. that's i think is because they believe right now the time is not right for peace. the thing is, it seems that it's never been the right time for peace, but from palestine to the us to cities around the world. the voice of calling for some kind of change are getting louder. for politicians. pressure is on the going to be us. we're going to change this to not them years for changes. i think the people are leading and the meters while the politicians do their thing, palestinians are confronted with the challenges of living under israeli occupation every day. run me as a bonnet is one of them. she lives in the occupied west bank and is a producer for al jazeera. and this episode of the online series between us she takes us through the barriers she faces as a palestinian journalist, covering the story on the ground. the
4:44 am
occupation here is at the heart of the story of the elephant in the room. mix about the 3000000 palestinians living in the occupied west bank under the occupation. and it's not only about done that's about those not born. yeah. my name is ronnie, as a bernie and i'm a producer coming the west bank from ramallah. twin us, i feared it would be more of the same. the vast majority of palestinians with born and raised under a few patients. so it became pretty much part and parcel of their lives to be waiting in long lines at tech points to have the soldiers knocking on their doors. the fact that nothing is predictable and pretty much the only predictable thing living under occupation. now i'm a little bit different, it's a bit of a bubble. it became a hub for the palestinian authority. it's vibrant, it has of center national organization, but go
4:45 am
a bit outside then reality hits again. he's got refugee camp. you've got checkpoints always. i've been covering the west bank for 20 years, being palestinian before been, get journalists has its own set of restrictions. you have the physical challenges that have to do with barriers and movement restrictions while they can't go to occupy jerusalem without them for any permit of foreign journalists can. and then there are the unseen barriers. i end up scrutinizing my own work to make sure that people don't think i'm biased. at the end of the day, i'm a journalist, i'm not an activist nor a pattern. ready but there are pros for being a palestinian journalist, you understand the complications. the no one says in the context of the story. for example, you go to a funeral and you see a mother and she's happy that woman just lost the child. but as a fellow simeon, you know, she's trying to show resilience. there's also a bonus for being
4:46 am
a woman journalist because i can have access to places that other people might not necessarily have access to on the phone. since any, for example, i can speak to edwin women. what i like to do is tell little stories and go into detail like spend some time with those people. take an extension, for example of such an abstract term. but how is it going to affect karima? how is it going to affect my living to tense, down the hill? permit is another example. the terms so blood, listen, get. people could lose their life. sweet thing for such a permit. some stories you really need that voice because you need to question the authorities. if palestinians and international organizations say that hong demolition are collective punishment, you have to have a voice to respond to people's accusations or concerns or fears. they didn't just destroy my house. they destroyed my dreams, they destroyed a family and a life. and while you know their answer is going to be by the book is really
4:47 am
authority. say some homes built close to the separation. friends are a security risk and have to be destroyed. you have to include that because that's the answer. but sometimes i feel like we really don't have to report on a population under occupation. so equating the occupier and the occupied would be inherently biased. there are lots of unsung heroes in this place. the people who live in the jordan valley with so little and yet decide they want to stay there. that people who have lost children or have loved ones tortured and choose to remain hopeful. what else motivates me? my kids, i want them to have a life better than mine. to be honest, i try to keep my kids as far away from the conflict as possible and not fill them in on the details of my job. but you can trace kids and they ask, why am i wrong be after covering the arson attack that killed the chef emily in duma. or why do i smell like skunk, quoted when covering a protest,
4:48 am
and you have to come up with answers that are 2, but at the same time that doesn't teach them to hate. and it's sticky. i think that injustice anywhere shouldn't be looked at seriously. palestinians have been marginalized by the us administration by the board, and even by the authority, the most understanding would tell you that application isn't new. it's been happening for years. the discourse shifted from why occupation should end to why and station is bad for. and palestinians are being sidelined in a story that pertains directly to them. they're sick and tired of waiting. most people we meet would tell you that. they fear that they're losing their most important assa hope and
4:49 am
the violence that palestinians suffer at the hands of israeli forces has been clear to see, especially in recent weeks. and that violence extends to children in the last 20 years more than 3000 past. and in children have been killed by israeli forces, or online interactive team has put together a feature to remember. some of the people behind that statistic, like 16 year old belong us. our. he was shot dead in 2019 during a protest and gather. and 15 year old hominy bore him home. i yell, who was shot in march 2020 by israeli forces conducting an early morning raid on a village. so let's speak to lena. i also feel one of the out the, or online journalists who helped to produce the know their name feature. she's also been leading much of our online coverage of recent events. lena, just tell us some more about the research that went into this. the research included looking different websites. so the, the policy and authority ministry of information. it has
4:50 am
a more comprehensive list of passengers that were killed since they are 2000. and then you have this children's rights organization called defense for children, palestine. their documentation of children killed is a bit more recent, but it definitely includes more details into the the, the child him or herself. and you know, the details that they're killing where they were, how they were killed. tragically, the names of more children need to be added to this list. can you give us a sense of what the impact on children has been? this level of trauma as is kind of routed in there since the beginning of their lives. if you take just children who are born in gaza, for example, children under the age of 14 have already witnessed about 4 major. large scale is very different from sitting on the strip. what powerful work. thank you so much, lena, for speaking to me, the we're going to end the show on
4:51 am
