Jung & Naiv: Was ist los in Gaza?


Mit Martin Lejeune, der als einziger deutscher Journalist während der Bombardierungen in Gaza lebte und vor dort berichtete. Must watch!


In der Folge geht’s um:
Was ist in den letzten Wochen in Gaza passiert? Warum gab es Krieg? Warum wird Israel angegriffen? Wer greift eigentlich wen an? Sind die Hamas Terroristen? Warum gibt es Widerstand? Ist jeder Mensch im Gazastreifen ein Terrorist? Unterstützt die Bevölkerung die Kämpfer? Ist Gaza besetzt? Ist Gaza ein Freiluftgefängnis? Warum traut man sich als deutscher Journalist während des Krieges dort zu leben? Wie wird er behandelt? Was machen die Gazaner eigentlich den ganzen Tag, was essen sie? Wie gehen sie mit den vielen Toten und Verletzten um? Was wurde alles zerstört? Was kann alles durch Tunnel transportiert werden? Darf man Schulen bombardieren? Wie reagieren die Menschen, wenn Raketen gen Israel abgeschossen werden? Gibt es Juden und Christen im Gazastreifen?

Puppets on invisible strings of illusion

I don’t want to spend my life pretending to be someone I’m not. Saying that sounds idealistic, doesn’t it? A bit naïve, too – because most of the time it doesn’t really agree with reality. At least everyone keeps telling me that. Ideals and principles are something not everybody can afford. Same goes for opinions – at least the ones contrary to accepted views.                                                             

Everywhere you go they shout at you: Be original, be honest and be confident – as long as you also stay alterable, cool and most importantly accepted. Nobody wants to be one of those strange people, wearing funny clothes, voicing incomprehensible opinions and have bodies that aren’t in top shape. You can be individual or say what’s on your mind – as long as you stay within the predetermined perceptions.

It’s just: I don’t want that. My goal in life isn’t “to be somebody” one day. Neither do I like to think of myself as someone who needs to be constantly improved in some way. I only want to be myself: A bit crazy, a little too emotional and well, chubby. I’m fine with all of that. You have to be able to afford principles, true – but what’s the price you pay for a life without them?

Take a close look at the world around you. You aren’t alterable but disposable. Not cool but empty. Accepted? Yes, but only if you keep playing by the rules. Who makes those rules? Well, not you that’s for sure. We all dance to somebody else’s tune. We are puppets on invisible strings marching to a prescribed beat.

You want to know the price for a life without any principles? It’s you and everything you are.

Journalism in 2014 - we know nothing, but if you can’t prove otherwise our opinion is the right one.
Translation:
Dirk Mann: "SPIEGEL issued a report, claiming Russian troops have crossed Ukrainian borders - do you have any specific evidence that this is happening?"
SPIEGEL ONLINE: "Do you have any specific evidence that it’s not?"
What you should know:
SPIEGEL is one of the most influencing news magazines in Germany. It used to be our biggest flagship for independent journalism in Germany, always opposing the newspaper BILD which is about as accurate & trustworthy as any FOX news show. But now they actually share the same opinion & have very similar headlines.

standwithpalestine:

More than 150 men, women and children squeezed into tiny wooden boxes opposite Parliament in London this morning to put pressure on the Government to help lift Israel’s illegal blockade on Gaza.

The protest sought to show the conditions Palestinians are and have been living in for 7 years. Israel openly admits targeting the civilians of Gaza with collective punishment - (illegal under international law) by - among other ways - putting them on a “diet”.
