Media Complicity in Gaza’s Struggle

Many of the US and western media have been reluctant to use the word genocide in relation to Israel’s onslaught on Gazans. Since 7/10/23 they have been downplaying Israeli crimes against Palestinians, and signalling to Israel that it can continue its atrocities with impunity, and reassuring the Bidene’s administration that it won’t be held to account for its complicity.

Beneath Palestine’s relentless strain,
Genocide’s truth, a scholar’s refrain.
Raz Segal’s words cut through the haze,
Media hesitates, obscures the gaze.

Journalistic games, a veiled charade,
Bothsidesism masks the raid.
Prism’s insight cracks the veneer,
Complicity’s echo, it’s time to clear:

In courts and protests, voices rise,
Seeking justice beneath troubled skies.
Accountability sought, a fervent plea,
For Gaza’s truth, unshackled, to be.

Youth's poetry ignites my quest, Against oppression, I protest. In Palestine's struggle, voices rise, For freedom, peace, justice, my cries.
