Gorilla Radio with Chris Cook, Jon Elmer, Ken O’Keefe, Janine Bandcroft Oct. 4, 2010

This past week, Israel went ahead with its declared end to the official ban on settlement building by Jews in the West Bank, guaranteeing, as Sharon’s calculated trespass did in 2000, years more of death and enmity on both sides of the Palestine-Israel divide.

Jon Elmer is a Canadian photo-journalist who has lived in, and reported from Palestine for more than a decade. He is currently living in Bethlehem, Palestine, reporting on the West Bank for the Inter Press Service and Al Jazeera among others. Jon Elmer in the first half.

The Israeli Defense Forces attack that resulted in the murder of nine of the Mavi Marmara’s roughly seven hundred peace activist passengers as they sailed with humanitarian aid for the Gaza Strip has subsequently been deemed by a United Nations investigation into the events of May 31st to have broken many international laws, not least being the execution-style murders of at least four of the nine killed that night.

Ken O’Keefe on the continued Gaza Flotilla campaigns to break the siege on the benighted population there, and bearing witness to the crimes of Israel in the second half.

And, Victoria Street Newz publisher and CFUV broadcaster, Janine Bandcroft will be here at the bottom of the hour to bring us newz from Victoria’s street community and beyond. But first, Jon Elmer live from Bethlehem.
