5/7/21 Dan Cohen on Western Media Bias in Israel and Colombia

Scott talks to Dan Cohen about unrest in Jerusalem, where Israeli soldiers stormed the Al-Aqsa mosque, and in Colombia, where protestors have been clashing with government forces, resulting in at least 39 civilian deaths so far. Both of these stories are perverted by most mainstream media sources in order to obscure the real story. In Israel, in this and all similar cases, the headlines invariably focus on the fact that Palestinians have attacked Israeli forces, without ever providing the background that in many cases, Palestinians are just fighting back against an increasingly oppressive Israeli military that is allowing settlers to steal their homes. There’s even less media attention focused on Colombia, since their right-wing government is a close ally of the United States. Make no mistake, says Cohen, if this were happening in Venezuela or any other state officially deemed an enemy by the U.S., it would practically be grounds for a military intervention. Interventionist hawks have cited far smaller causes over the last few years when advocating regime change in Venezuela.
