Palestinians bid Jon Stewart a fond farewell

2 posts in this topic

Apart from the constant aerial bombardments and denials of our rights by Israel, we Palestinians have been victims of another major global force: the American news media.

Misrepresentations of our history, our struggle, and our narrative have been the norm.

From the media's refusal to use the term "occupation" to its insistence on creating a faux-parity between oppressor and oppressed, Palestinians have become accustomed to seeing their images grossly twisted on every American news channel.

In fact, if one were to only watch CNN to glean the latest developments, one might think that there is a country named Israel that is fighting a country named Palestine.

But for the past 15 years or so, amid a sea of bias and distortion, one voice in the American media has given some modicum of balance to discussion on the Palestinian question.

One individual has humanised Palestinian lives and levelled the debate.

One personality has dared to criticise Israeli policies that have for so long denied the most basic of rights to Palestinians, through occupation and ethnic supremacy.
