PBS and NPR leave out key facts in their Israel stories
Pundits and reporters in the mainstream media have a double standard when it comes to Israel and all but lie about apartheid, Jewish nationalism, and the role of the Israel lobby.
Viols, détentions et exécutions arbitraires… Ces traitements inhumains envers les femmes & filles palestiniennes à #Gaza et en #Cisjordanie sont dénoncés par des expertes de l’ONU. La #LDH continue à marteler que fermer les yeux n’est pas une option !
In German media every tiny bit of information about events in the US - Super Bowl, Taylor Swift, wildfire in California, the latest school shooting - gets mentioned in the news far more often than any similar happening in other countries. You just can't flee into attention deficit being overpowered by news from the US especially the sort of celebrity and society excitement which perform on tabloid level.
But three days after #AaronBushnell chose to give his life for the ultimate act of protest I'm waiting in vain for any news outlet of greater reach and importance to cover this story not only, if at all as a two-sentence newslet although aside from its political implications it has all you need to make up headlines.
The absence of any serious reporting about his tribute to the plight of #Palestinians in #Gaza and protest against the complicity of his country and military in this war tells everything about the ideological and military support Israel gets from Germany in carrying out this #genocide.
To raise the question what could have been his motives for public self immolation seems to be informally verboten. It could contribute to the growing doubt whether German complicity might not be so ethically pure and peace loving as it's sold.
So Rest In Power, Aaron Bushnell, there are still some people who admire your courage and empathy even in the dark night of consciously contributing to this bloodshed out of sheer opportunism.
Don't Glorify Self-Immolation
"American media won’t question the mental health of those who gleefully blow up neighborhoods full of children and hunt, humiliate, torture and kill for sport as we see with the IDF. That isn’t viewed through a lens of dysfunction; but protesting it by self-immolation? Of course."
Almost all mainstream media treated Aaron Bushnell as a mental health crisis, just another random suicide, and ignored everything he said.

"The Palestinian city of Rafah is not only older than Israel, it is also as old as civilisation itself."
"Rafah has existed for thousands of years. The Canaanites referred to it as Rafia."
"As the gateway between two continents and two worlds, Rafah has been at the forefront of many wars and foreign invasions, from ancient Egyptians to the Romans, to Napoleon.
