During the weeks of August 13 and 20, Salaam Shalom: Report on Palestine
Israel will show four excerpts from the documentary “Home Front: Stories
from Sheikh Jarrah,” which chronicle the struggle by Palestinian and
Jewish Israeli activists to stop the forced evictions of Palestinian
families from this occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood. The
documentary was produced by Just Vision Media. Also, we will air a
report prepared by the Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel
(Adalah) on Israel’s latest campaign to forcibly transfer 70,000 of its
Bedouin citizens in the Naqab/Negev in order to confiscate their
ancestral lands for Jewish settlements and military bases. This ethnic
cleansing policy was recommended by the government’s Prawer Commission.
Finally, the program will broadcast a report, produced by the Real News
Network, on the machinations of right-wing American Jews and Zionists to
channel large sums of money into the Romney and Obama presidential
campaigns to ensure continued American support for Israel. Special
thanks to Danny Weiss, technical producer, Bill Coil, co-producer and
Jamie Brooks, VTJP webmaster.
