This Wednesday morning Israeli occupation forces violently raided the Jenin refugee camp, murdering a Palestinian-American journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, and injuring her producer. This was a blatant crime, one that the Western media have distorted and lied about, along with the Israeli government.
The despicable lies of Western corporate media are again on full display with the blatant murder of Palestinian-American journalist Shireen Abu Akleh. Shireen was not “killed under suspicious circumstances”, there is no chance that “Palestinians accidentally killed her” and all the evidence points to Israeli culpability. But not for the propagandist corporate media, no, this was a “complex” and “mysterious” tragedy.
Before we delve deeper, first it is important to note who Shireen Abu Akleh was. Shireen was one of the most famous and loved Palestinian journalists., she had worked for Al-Jazeera, covering Israeli crimes for over 20 years. Some of her most notable work came in the same location where she was killed, Jenin camp, where in 2002 Shireen was one of very few journalists to cover the Israeli massacre of Palestinians inside the refugee camp. A sea of tears have been cried by Palestinians throughout all the Palestinian territories and into the diaspora. What she meant and the bravery that she displayed whilst doing her job meant more than the words she spoke. She has become immortalized as a symbol of Palestinian resistance to Israel’s brutal military occupation and ethnic cleansing campaign.
