What the media won’t tell you about East Jerusalem

demolition-of-abu-armelhs-house-in-jerusalem_2075166 The events at the Al Aqsa mosque and widely reported attacks by Palestinians on Israeli citizens (in contrast to those by Israeli’s on Palestinians which have gone virtually unreported) need to be seen in context.

Palestinians living under the occupation in East Jerusalem in particular have had to cope with an almost impossible level of interference with their daily lives. This reality – ignored by the Western media but which goes a long way towards explaining why some Palestinians are now resorting to desperate measures – is set out in a new PSC briefing ‘What the media won’t tell you about East Jerusalem’.  See http://www.palestinecampaign.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/east-jerusalem-factsheet.pdf

Check it out; it’s well worth reading.
