THE DEFINITIVE RAP: The Israeli Perspective of Shireen Abu Akleh’s Death Interview with Barry Shaw


JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Shireen Abu Akleh, a veteran Palestinian journalist with the Al Jazeera network was killed last Wednesday while covering the turmoil in the Jenin refugee camp. The Definitive Rap expresses deep condolences to her family.

The U.S. media have wasted no time and condemned Israel for Shireen’s untimely death. At The Definitive Rap we are probably the first media program to give our audience the Israeli perspective with a wealth of details not heard on CNN or read in The New York Times. With us today is our Israeli correspondent, Barry Shaw who shared with our audience what really happened in Jenin where Shireen lost her life while covering the story, that is different than what Al Jazeera reported, and how the media is demonizing Israel. Barry also explained how Shireen’s death is being used as a political pawn.

Barry talked about President Biden’s upcoming visit to Israel in June. During that visit, he plans to go to East Jerusalem to visit a hospital, demanding to be unaccompanied by any Israeli official and what that conveys to the world. He stated that while President Biden is prepared to visit Jerusalem and meet Palestinian officials, the White House has publicly opposed the building of Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria, and the kind of message all this is also sending to the world with regard to widening the gap between Jerusalem, and Israel and Washington.
