Behind the biased headlines of Israel’s occupation

Every day, Western media headlines showcase intense conflicts between Palestinians and Israelis, with the Palestinians more often than not getting the blame. Some are major news stories, as we saw in the three-day war that took place last weekend between Israel and Hamas in the Gaza Strip which received much high-profile coverage.

But many incidents get little mainstream media attention or coverage, putting the civilians and journalists, especially the Palestinians, at risk and taking the edge off of the harsh reality of Israel’s excessive use of force, the racism that underlines Israeli policies and the cost on the everyday lives of Palestinian civilians who often are the victims of the crossfire.

As the world focused on the rocket battle between Hamas and Israel this week, life went on as usual in the Israeli occupied West Bank were Palestinians are forced to accept an inferior status, denied civil rights that can range from survivable clashes to the loss of life.
