Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
`60 Minutes' set to look into colonized E. Jerusalem

Mondoweiss alert:

This coming Sunday, "60 Minutes" will go to Silwan, the neighborhood just outside the walls of the Old City in occupied East Jerusalem that Jews are colonizing. The trailer suggests that she will put some emphasis on the biblical stories that rightwingers tell themselves to justify the landgrab. The Brook Kidron, etc. Though the trailer ends with that shocking video of the settler in his car upending two Palestinian boys in the road in Silwan as they threw rocks. I am told that Stahl turned to Ir Amim for her reporting, the group that wants to share Jerusalem, and that offers some hope that she will expose the occupation in all its gory.


A rare look at IP reality in the US mainstream media. If you can receive US media over here in Europe, tune in.
