Nieuwswaarde: drie Italiaanse nonnen omgekomen bij ongeval Israël

Drie Europeanen komen in Israël om het leven door een verkeersongeluk. Dat is volgens persbureau ANP nieuws van waarde voor Nederland. Volgens cijfers van de Israëlische mensenrechtenorganisatie B'tselem, gerekend over 10 jaar, worden er gemiddeld bijna 2 Palestijnen per dag gedood door het Israëlische leger. 98,9% mensen werden op eigen land gedood. 21% waren kinderen.

Beit Shean, 1900

Medio 1948 werd het Palestijnse dorp Beit Shean ingenomen door de joodse terroristen van de Hagana, waarop de bewoners moesten vluchten. Eind 1948 werd het dorp in opdracht van Ben Goerion met de grond gelijk gemaakt. Dit tot grote verontwaardiging van minister Cizling, die de Palestijnse huizen voor joden had bestemd. (Tom Segev, 1949, The First Israelis, p. 68-91) Volgens alle niet-Palestijnse bronnen heeft het Palestijnse dorp nooit bestaan en wordt alleen uitgewijd over de archeologische opgravingen die veel toeristen trekken.

Waarom hebben Europeaanse verkeersdoden in Israël nieuwswaarde, en het dagelijkse doden van Palestijnen door Israëli's niet? Omdat in de commerciële massamedia het leven van een Europeaan (of Westerling) belangrijker is dan dat van een Palestijn.

Het Palestinian Centre for Human Rights publiceert o.a. wekelijks rapporten over de activiteiten en mensenrechtenschendingen van het Israëlische leger in bezet gebied. Hieronder een gedeelte van haar laaste rapport.
