We are currently in our annual crowdfunding campaign. If you want our independent and non-profit media network to continue in 2024, please participate in this campaign by clicking here.

This is a compilation of excerpts from some of the interviews we conducted before the outbreak of the conflict in Palestine and Israel on October 7, 2023. As the focus of the mainstream media is currently on recent events, we have taken the opportunity to shed light on the historical and contextual picture of the issue – an approach that we believe is lacking in media coverage. This video does not justify the Hamas terror attacks of October 7th and all opinions expressed are only relevant for historical understanding. This post includes interviews with Noam Chomsky, Abby Martin, Chris Hedges and Dr. Shir Hever.
