Dr. Marwa Osman On Recent Developments in Occupied Palestine

Following our mid-February conversation, I spoke again with Lebanese journalist and political commentator, Dr. Marwa Osman, about recent developments in occupied Palestine.

Among the things discussed were:

-The new Israeli law passed in the Knesset that legitimizes the deportation & ethnic cleansing of Palestinians by revoking their citizenship and residency.

-The near-daily resistance acts against the occupation forces, particularly at inhumane “checkpoints” & against Israeli invasions into Jenin Camp.

-The UN Charter on right for people under occupation to defend themselves by any means possible, including armed resistance.

-That Israel bombs Gaza and Syria routinely without world condemnation, including just two weeks after the worst earthquake to hit the Levant in 100 years.

-The brutal Israeli policies of terrorism in Gaza: gunning down fishers and farmers; shooting medics, including firing dart bombs at medics; the over 15 year full blockade of Gaza; destroying Gaza’s sole power plant and not allowing Palestinians to rebuild it; not allowing Palestinians to maintain or improve on their sewage holding and treatment facilities (meaning floods of sewage, sewage pumped into the sea, sewage contaminating the ground water).

Israel’s airstrikes in Syria are not newsworthy for Western media, as a result status quo continues & civilians suffer
