The Greencast – March 4, 2019 – Khalida Jarrar

Show Notes:

On the show this week, I’m covering the release of Palestinian legislator Khalida Jarrar, held for nearly two years by the Israeli government without charge or trial. Also, the UN Commission on Human Rights released a report last week on Israeli snipers knowingly targeting emergency medical workers, disabled people and children at the 2018 Palestinian Right of Return protest. Finally, several items covering the continued lead up to war in Venezuela.

Edit: I misspoke in the show. That should be two million people in Gaza facing food and medical care shortages, not twenty.

Palestinian MP Khalida Jarrar was released today from an Israeli prison where she was held for almost 2 years without charge or trial. Her case isn’t unique, it’s crucial to remember it is the norm for Israel to detain Palestinians for indefinite periods without being charged.
