2014.07.10 - Assault on Gaza / Apartheid Wall / Tariq Abu Khdeir

On this week's show we covered the latest massive assault on Gaza by the Israeli army:
- We got the latest updates from Gaza-based journalist Rami Munir
- We discussed the different official political reactions
- we talked about the international grassroots reaction
- we talked with Montreal-based activist, Lorraine Guay about the Montreal protest

-We also covered the brutal beating of teenager Tariq Abu Khdeir by Israeli officers. The violent assault was caught on camera which prompted international outrage. Tariq Abu Khdeir is the cousin of the Palestinian teenager Mohammad Abu Khdeir who was burned alive by Israeli settlers in what is believed to be a vengeful act against the murder of the 3 Israeli teen settlers

-On July 9th 2004 the International Court of Justice ruled that the apartheid wall was illegal. We finished the show by commemorating the 10th anniversary of this ruling by playing a couple of testimonies of Palestinians explaining how the wall affects their life
