: Protests in Israel During Protective Edge

מדינה נכתב על ידי

This page focuses on events and protests opposing the aggressive Israeli government offensive in Gaza. It supports a political process leading to an effective ceasefire and an end of the siege on Gaza. These events are rarely covered in the mainstream media, and if so, are seen as delusional. We are proud to have covered these events and are posting them on the Social TV website, YouTube, Facebook, cable and satellite television channels (channel 98 + 30), as well as affiliate websites that share the values we promote.

At the end of the week in which the kidnapping of students Gil-Ad Shaer, Naftali Fraenkel and Eyal Yifrah was made known, we joined hundreds of Jews and Arabs from across the country for a cultural and shopping event against racism, which was held in Fureidis. After milling around the many stalls and hummus shops, visitors broke up into various groups to discuss the heightened tensions between Jews and Palestinians in Israel.

During “Operation Protective Edge”, we witnessed uniformed incitement emanating from mainstream Israeli media channels. But in the Gaza peripheral communities, other voices were heard. Some there view Hamas as a negotiating partner. They also oppose military attacks on Gaza and see Gazians as people who want to live in peace. Other voices, though absent from the Israeli media coverage, were prominent on Social TV. Residents of Sde Nitzan, Sderot, Nirim, Nativ Ha'asara – “Kol Acher" (another voice) – expressed criticism of the government's aggressive policies and solidarity with the people of Gaza.
