International Silence over Israel’s media Repression is also an Attack on the Palestinian Narratives

While there is still much focus on the extrajudicial killing of Palestinian-American journalist, Shireen Abu Akleh, calls for justice will remain resonant, at least presently. However, Israel has perfected its tactics of denial and impunity. The international community has not gone beyond its usual statements and Israel has already got away with the assault on Abu Akleh’s funeral at the time, despite the repugnance it evoked. US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken’s glossing over Israeli violence by reframing it as an intrusion is ample proof of what Israel expects and what it receives.

Regardless of what violation Israel commits and on what scale, there is always a corresponding value of impunity which the settler colonial enterprise establishes and the international community approves of.
