Over the past few weeks, violent clashes have erupted in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, with youths taking to the streets to protest against an occupation that has lasted almost half a century.Israel has been swift and brutal in its response – to date, more than 50 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces.Videos of these attacks, as well as the reprisals, have been broadcast by mainstream media causing some to conclude that the news is fuelling the sense of grievance and then the violence. Whenever violence flares in this region, there are complaints from both sides over how this story is reported, and the same concerns – the lack of context, the issues around terminology and the way the stories are framed – have come to the fore once again.Talking us through the media side of this ongoing story is Luke Baker, the bureau chief for the Reuters news agency in Jerusalem; Ben Hartman, a reporter with the Jerusalem Post; Jim Naureckas, an editor at the US-based media watchdog FAIR.org; and Mouin Rabbani, a senior fellow at the Institute for Palestine Studies.Also: The Listening Post’s Marcela Pizarro looks at the issues surrounding binary narratives in the news media.
