RT THE FIRST IN RUSSIA TO HOST PROMAXBDA AWARDS JUDGING

MOSCOW, FEBRUARY 9RT became the first organization in Russia ever to host a jury for PromaxBDA judging, namely for the PromaxBDA Europe Awards, a prestigious international competition that celebrates excellence in TV promotion, marketing and design. RT itself has collected 29 PromaxBDA awards over the last decade.

“Russian TV and branding is exploding right now,” said Lester Mordue, Director, European Conference and Relations at PromaxBDA. “The work that’s coming from this region, the work that’s particularly come from this city is outstanding. And we’ve seen it and we keep seeing it. And we thought – well, we need to be in Moscow to represent and allow for the people who are working in the industry here to represent the great work which comes from this place”.

“We had a room filled with different categories, different judgements being taken. We saw a lot of outstanding work, a lot of discussion was taking place as well naturally to decide who would get a gold award in this year’s competition.”

The expert panel at RT judged eight categories for the PromaxBDA Europe Awards 2018. The jury was comprised of leading industry professionals: Boris Gorlov, Head of the Creative Department at RT, Peter Varsics, Creative Director at HBO Europe, Laurent Sauvage, Creative Director at France 3, Dmitry Likin, Art Director at Channel One, Ruben Oganesyan, Deputy Director General for Strategic Development at TNT, Pavel Boreiko, Creative Director at Rossiya 24, Andrey Telminov, Marketing Director at STS, Lily Sheroziya, Marketing Director at TV-3, and Andrey Golikov, Art Director of the design studio N3 Design.

RT has won 29 PromaxBDA awards since its launch, including 12 gold awards, for its various creative projects, including the channel’s Never Giving Up promo featuring members of the Russian Paralympic team, RT’s 10-year anniversary promos, and the network’s promo for the 70-year anniversary Victory Day celebration.
The viral RT ‘2035’ video celebrating the 10th anniversary of the channel took bronze at PromaxBDA and also made it to the finals of the New York Festivals. It featured Barack Obama and John Kerry in retirement and Edward Snowden as the US president. The video earned over 1.5 million views across Facebook and YouTube , drawing the attention of such outlets as The Washington Post, Slate Magazine and The Hollywood Reporter.

RT’s various promos and projects have claimed victories at numerous other prestigious contests. RT’s #1917LIVE project, a large-scale historical Twitter re-enactment of the Russian Revolution in commemoration of its 100th anniversary, took home honors from the Shorty Social Good Awards, Epica Awards, Drum Social Buzz Awards, Adweek ARC Awards and a number of other high-profile competitions.

The #1917LIVE project also caught the eye of many politicians, journalists and researchers in the US, Europe and Latin America, and its Twitter feed was eagerly followed by The Guardian, Bloomberg, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and AFP, among other outlets.

RT’s “Blame it on us!” ad campaign was launched in 2017 in Russian airports and on the streets of London and Washington. The campaign went viral on social media and sparked interest among global media with Buzzfeed, The Washington Post, Mashable, and The Sun publishing articles about RT’s ironic ads. It even attracted Hillary Clinton’s attention. The 2016 US presidential candidate commented, “Maybe you have even seen the ads in the London Underground from one Russian state funded propaganda source bragging ‘Watch RT and find out who we are planning to hack next’.”

In 2017, RT, the only Russian TV channel to be nominated five times for the prestigious Emmy Awards, hosted Russia’s first ever semi-final round of judging in the news and documentary categories for the International Emmy Awards. The jury consisted of well-known Russian journalists and media representatives. The PromaxBDA Europe 2018 winners will be announced on March 12-13, 2018, in Rome.

SAG Awards: 2018 Is ‘Living in Hell’

The 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards aired January 21 on TNT and TBS and it was all about the ladies – from First Lady Melania Trump, to the #MeToo women. For the first time, the awards show incorporated a host, actress Kristen Bell, and a decision was made in advance to only use female presenters. Men were relegated to second class status, only helping to present the nominations of ensemble awards.

In the opening, Bell noted she is the first host and a woman, so she dubbed herself the “First Lady.” As her pet initiative, she chose cyber bullying because she said she’s seen little work done. Oh, how clever! Mocking the real First Lady while this show was touted as all about supporting women. Friendly reminder from Hollywood – conservative women don’t matter. #NotUsToo

Bell went on to refer to The Handmaid’s Tale as “a documentary” and said, “The cast from the [race-themed horror] film Get Out is here serving as a walking reminder that if you say yes to the Tea Party, you’re immediately on your way to the sunken place.”

 

 

As Maya Rudolph came out to present Best Male in a Comedy Series, she said to Bell, “I love your show about living in hell. What’s it called?” Bell replied, “2018.”

William H. Macy won that award for Shameless and decided to insert his opinion on truth, that somehow pretending to be someone else as an actor gets to the truth. #FakeNews

A couple of years ago I was privy to a conversation where my friend David Mamet, who was my mentor and taught me everything I knew, was talking to a journalist and the journalist said actors have a weird job. We tell lies for a living. And Mamet said no, no, an actor’s job is to tell the truth. After a confused conversation, the journalist finally said, well, I think we’re saying the same thing. But they weren’t. And even though our lines and the stories we’re told are given to us by writers, it’s our job under those imaginary circumstances to find the truth. I think it’s a glorious way to make a living, especially in this day and age when so many people can’t either recognize the truth or don’t think it’s important.

Morgan Freeman was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award. At the end of his thank you speech, he made a reference to the design of the SAG Award, which is a statuette of a naked man: “Oh, and one more thing. I wasn’t going to, I wasn’t going to do this. I’m going to tell you what is wrong with this statue. It works from the back. From the front, it’s gender-specific. Maybe I started something.” Maybe now we will see a new award next year #TimesUp.

The very end of the show produced a newsworthy announcement from actress Brie Larson. She told the audience that a new code of safety on set has been made for actors – “We’re excited to say, with collaboration of Time’s Up and your union members in this room, there is a new code of conduct to make sure there is a code of safety on set so we can do the strong and brave performances that we have seen brief glimpses of tonight.”

It should be noted that James Franco and Aziz Ansari were nominated for awards before their names became associated with sexual harassment/abuse stories. Neither won, though, and only Franco was present in the audience. I have to say I was promised a historic show with all this female power but I ended up being a bit disappointed.

As Trump Gives Out Fake News Awards, WikiLeaks Reminds the World BOTH Parties Are Liars

hypocrisyhypocrisy

While the same media outlets that have been openly critical of President Trump became the topics of his “Fake News Awards,” the entire event was filled with hypocrisy, and served as a depiction of the pot calling the kettle black—both entities have spent a significant amount of time lying to and misleading the public.

WikiLeaks, an organization that the mainstream media have attempted to claim is a pro-Trump, pro-Russia propaganda firm, took to Twitter to point out the hypocrisy surrounding the awards:

“While WikiLeaks, as a primary source organization with a perfect verification record welcomes debate over ‘fake news’ it should be noted that along with the U.S. establishment press, the Trump administration is a frequent source of false information,” the organization claimed.

The statement is notable because it serves as a reminder of the relationship between WikiLeaks and the Trump administration. When Trump was running for office, and WikiLeaks was releasing emails from members of the Democratic National Committee, Trump was more than happy to credit the organization when citing the damning information that it released about his opponent, Hillary Clinton.

However, now that Trump is in office, he has made no attempt to pardon WikiLeaks’ founder, Julian Assange, who is currently living at the London embassy in Ecuador after he was granted political asylum.

Trump has also openly criticized Chelsea Manning, the Army whistleblower who helped to put WikiLeaks on the map by releasing 700,000 files and documents that revealed atrocities committed by the U.S. military in Iraq.

Trump’s hypocrisy when it comes to WikiLeaks is notable because it serves as a reminder of his hypocrisy when it comes to foreign policy. He uses stories of innocent children killed by airstrikes and the dangers of blowback when it suits him but ignores those same factors when they challenge his administration’s policies.

When Trump was viewed as the “outsider” candidate in the 2016 election, and he needed support from an anti-establishment fan base, he was fully in support of holding Saudi Arabia accountable for the role it played in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. However, once Trump was in office, his tune quickly changed, and Saudi Arabia became the first stop on his first foreign trip as president—paving the way for the completion of the largest single arms deal in U.S. history.

Trump’s cozy relationship with Saudi Arabia has resulted in pure genocide in the poorest country in the Middle East. While the massacre was initially started by the Obama Administration, the Trump Administration’s foreign policy has only made conditions worse in Yemen, where the latest records show that since 2015, 5,000 children have been killed or injured, 3 million were born into war, and 1.8 million children are acutely malnourished.

Trump’s hypocrisy on foreign policy extends to Syria, where he began criticizing Obama’s attempts to invade the country in 2013. He also used his time on the campaign trail to accuse the Obama Administration of helping to create ISIS in its attempts to overthrow Assad.

However, despite Trump’s rhetoric, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson boasted a “new” strategy in Syria centered around long-term U.S. military presence that would eventually lead to overthrowing President Bashar al-Assad, during a speech at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution.

Tillerson vowed that the U.S. will stay until “ISIS and Al-Qaeda in Syria suffer an enduring defeat; do not present a threat to the homeland; and do not resurface in a new form; and that Syria never again serves as a platform or safe haven for terrorists to organize, recruit, finance, train and carry out attacks on American citizens at home or abroad or against our allies.”

Tillerson also said the U.S. still seeks to overthrow Assad “through an incremental process of constitutional reform and UN-supervised elections.”

“A stable, unified and independent Syria ultimately requires post-Assad leadership in order to be successful,” Tillerson said. “The departure of Assad through the UN-led Geneva process will create the conditions for a durable peace within Syria and security along the border for Syria’s neighbors.”

Ultimately, Trump is correct in stating that the mainstream media has published stories about him that were false or misleading. But Trump is guilty of the exact same offenses that he accusing CNN and MSNBC of committing.

While one might wonder why the mainstream media would focus more on Russiagate than on the dramatic increase in civilian casualties, or the escalation of military spending under the Trump Administration, they should also realize that in order to provide accurate and honest coverage of Trump, the media would have to admit that he is only continuing the exact same thing his predecessors have been doing—and the media has been covering up—for years.

President Trump Unveils Winners of 2017 Fake News Awards

When President Trump announced them in early January, many in the liberal media thought that the Fake News Awards were a bluff and he wouldn’t go through with them. But having been previously postponed, Trump unveiled the “winners” Wednesday night. Out of the top 10 instances of fake news, CNN was sloppy enough to win four awards with the top spot going to The New York Times. The awards twice noted a Media Research Center study that showed 90 percent of the media’s coverage of him was negative.

According to the President, The New York Times columnist and soothsayer economist Paul Krugman produced the number one fake news story on election night when he feverishly proclaimed: “If the question is when markets will recover, a first-pass answer is never.” Looking back at this prediction on the day the stock market closed over 26,000 for the first time ever and Apple announced major investments in the U.S. due to the GOP tax cuts it’s easy to see Krugman’s ridiculousness.

Number two was ABC’s credibility shattering report by investigative correspondent Brian Ross, who excitedly yet falsely claimed that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn agreed to testify that candidate Trump directed him to contact the Russians. ABC President James Goldston was so furious that he suspended Ross for a month (over the holidays) and barred him from ever again reporting on Trump.

CNN’s first win showed up at number three. In this case, CNN’s Manu Raju shouted from the hilltops that Donald Trump Jr. was in possession of the hacked WikiLeaks e-mails long before they were released to the public. It didn’t take long for The Washington Post (and others) to blow the doors off the story and prove CNN was being anything but truthful. In the end, Raju and colleague Jeremy Herb kept their positions.

 

 

Time magazine came in at number four with their lie about Trump having Martin Luther King Jr.’s bust removed from the Oval Office. This wild claim came just two days into Trump’s presidency. Therefore, the media were so eager to smear him that many journalists didn’t search for the truth before they ran with it.

To round out the top five, Trump selected Washington Post reporter Dave Weigel who tweeted out a deceptive picture of a Trump rally in Pensacola, Florida. He claimed very few people showed up to see the President speak but the picture was from hours before the place ended up packed.

CNN won back-to-back awards as they took spots six and seven. First, CNN pushed a deceptively edited video that purported to show Trump crassly dumping fish food into a koi pound on his visit to Japan. Of course, they didn’t show that Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was the first to dump the food. Then the outlet claimed former Press Secretary Anthony Scaramucci had a secret meeting with a Russian, heads rolled as three CNN reporters were fired for this offense.

The eighth award went to the radical Newsweek, who fabricated an international handshake snub out of thin air. The even ran this loud headline: “WATCH DONALD TRUMP HANDSHAKE REJECTED BY POLISH FIRST LADY IN HILARIOUSLY AWKWARD EXCHANGE.”

CNN’s fourth award came at spot nine when their anonymous sources falsely claimed that former FBI Director James Comey would “refute” Trump’s claim that he was told three times he wasn’t under investigation. And when they were proven wrong, CNN issued a pathetic “correction” (with the story’s byline featuring chief political analyst Gloria Borger and The Lead host Jake Tapper).

The New York Times bookended the top ten with a false claim that the Trump administration was trying to hide a climate change report. The paper claimed the document was leaked to them by people who were afraid it would be “suppressed,” but in reality, it had been online for months.

Along with a Trump tweet about the Russia investigation, the awards concluded by listing ten accomplishments that weren’t getting enough airtime.

The 49th NAACP Image Awards nominees honored at star-studded luncheon

The annual tradition of the star-studded NAACP Image Awards Nominees’ Luncheon brought the industry’s leading talent to The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Dec. 16. Standout performances across the board were honored and celebrated with some of Hollywood’s top names in attendance.

The NAACP Image Awards recognizes over 40 categories highlighting artists in television, movies, music and literature. “I am proud the NAACP continues this tradition of honoring African-Americans and others in front of the camera and behind the camera,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson told AXS during Saturday’s event. “My hope for the future of the Image Awards is that we continue to grow, that we become the voice of advocacy to increase diversity in the entertainment industry and that talents of all of our communities are on display and celebrated by the community as a whole.”

“It’s lovely to be recognized by people who look like you, to be loved on by your own is a wonderful thing,” Niecy Nash said of her nomination. The former “Reno 911!” star is up for Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in “Claws.” Nash admits there are so many amazing performances this year it’s hard to predict a winner.

In the same category is Loretta Devine, up for her part in “The Carmichael Show.” Devine tells AXS it’s because of outlets such as Netflix and the success of talented women like Shonda Rhimes, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis and others, that more doors are opening now. Devine is also nominated for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance in “Doc McStuffins.” On top of that, she has TV One’s “Behind the Movement” set to premiere in 2018, which means it’s likely the legendary actress will have even more reason to celebrate next year.  

Yvette Nicole Brown is another phenomenal force nominated in the category of Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance. Along with “Elena of Avalor,” Brown has had numerous extraordinary performances this year in other hits such as ABC’s “The Mayor.” “I’m just overjoyed,” Brown says of her first Image Award nomination. “Look, I’m in a category with David [Oyelowo], Kerry Washington, Loretta Devine and Tiffany Haddish. I’ve got no chance in hell of winning this award but I’m telling you I’m so happy to see my face up there with them and I’m just happy to be here.”

Lil Rel Howery also celebrates his first Image Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture in “Get Out.” The actor is thrilled about the buzz “Get Out” has received and praised the work of Jordan Peele. While Howery has a slew of projects on deck (one being a FOX comedy he’s writing with fellow ‘Carmichael Show’ alum Jerrod Carmichael) his first line of duty was co-hosting the luncheon with Amirah Vann.

Justin Simien is another talent who has seen huge success this year with his show, “Dear White People.” He’s nominated for both Outstanding Writing and Directing in a Comedy Series. As he shared his excitement about his nominations, he also filled AXS in on a few surprise guest stars for Season 2, which will have fans just as thrilled as he is.

In the music department, Angela Jollivette, the former senior project manager with The Recording Academy/GRAMMY Awards who now oversees the music for OWN/Lionsgate TV’s “Greenleaf,” is up for Outstanding Gospel/Christian Album (Traditional or Contemporary). Greenleaf Soundtrack Volume 2 hit digital retailers in September and people love the inspiration behind it. Lionsgate and RCA lead in Image Award nominations this year, both of which had a hand in the project. “Music is universal,” Jollivette says. “It’s the language everyone speaks; no matter the genre.”

Also shining a light on inspiration is Marsai Martin. The young actress from ABC’s “black-ish” is no stranger to the NAACP Image Awards. She won in 2016, 2017 and is nominated again in 2018 in the same categories: Outstanding Performance by a Youth (Series, Special, Television Movie or Limited Series) and Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. Martin shared that her current excitement stems from the anticipation of getting to meet R&B singer/songwriter SZA, who earned an impressive four nominations this year.

Martin says all in all, she feels the future is bright and voiced that she sees herself expanding to work behind the camera one day. “I’m an actress but I want to experience more things in this industry,” she tells AXS. “Directing and writing; doing stuff like that. I don’t know what 18-year-old or 32-old Marsai would want, but that’s where I want to be right now.”

The luncheon included a special edition of holiday karaoke, hosted by last year’s Outstanding New Artist nominee, MAJOR. Performances were made by Amirah Vann, as well as one incredible moment featuring Outstanding New Artist nominee Demetria McKinney and Yvette Nicole Brown backing up the lovely Loretta Devine singing a flawless rendition of “Santa Baby.”

Tune in to see who takes home a trophy at the 49th Annual NAACP Image Awards. Anthony Anderson returns to host the two-hour special event on Jan. 15. The show airs live on TV One, Monday, Jan. 15, at 9 p.m./8c.

Zionist Group Awards Trump its Highest Honor: ‘No President Has Done More’ to Promote Zionism

zionzion

Washington, D.C. — While President Donald Trump has often referred to himself a “friend of Israel,” he has now been officially recognized for that stance by a pro-Zionist group that advocates for Jewish nationalism.

On Monday, the Friends of Zion Museum presented President Trump with its Friends of Zion Award at the White House.

“No president in history has ever built such an alliance for the State of Israel and the Jewish people, and no president has courageously stood up for the State of Israel on the global stage as you had Mr. President,” declared Dr. Mike Evans, founder of the Friends of Zion Museum. “President Trump’s historic recognition of Jerusalem will secure his place in history as the first American president to take that step since the founding of the State of Israel in 1948.”

“We believe no American president in history has done more to defend the Jewish people in the United Nations,” Evans added.

The Friends of Zion Museum is located in Jerusalem and works to push the Israeli agenda while attempting to legitimize the taking of Palestinian lands.

One of the biggest moves, celebrated by Trump’s Zionist backers, was his recent announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Zionist allied Evangelicals lauded the Trump administration’s staunch support for Israel.

“This president is an anomaly. He is an anomaly because he keeps his promises. Evangelicals, conservatives across this country are grateful for the fact that he has actually done exactly what he campaigned on,” said Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council.

Many people fail to understand what encompasses Zionism.

For those unfamiliar with the term Zionism, Vox explains:

Zionism is Israel’s national ideology. Zionists believe Judaism is a nationality as well as a religion, and that Jews deserve their own state in their ancestral homeland, Israel, in the same way the French people deserve France or the Chinese people should have China. It’s what brought Jews back to Israel in the first place, and also at the heart of what concerns Arabs and Palestinians about the Israeli state.

 

Arabs and Palestinians generally oppose Zionism, as the explicitly Jewish character of the Israeli state means that Jews have privileges that others don’t.

 

For instance, any Jew anywhere in the world can become an Israeli citizen, a right not extended to any other class of person. Arabs, then, often see Zionism as a species of colonialism and racism aimed at appropriating Palestinian land and systematically disenfranchising the Palestinians that remain. Arab states actually pushed through a UN General Assembly resolution labeling Zionism “a form of racism and racial discrimination” in 1975, though it was repealed 16 years later.

Despite the Zionist position, Israel is on track to become an apartheid state.

In fact, a recent UN report noted that Israel had established “an apartheid regime that oppresses and dominates the Palestinian people as a whole.”

The report – Israeli Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid – was commissioned and published by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) and launched in Beirut, and urged governments to “support boycott, divestment and sanctions [BDS] activities and respond positively to calls for such initiatives”.

A brief history of Zionism is as follows, according to Britannica:

In the 16th and 17th centuries a number of “messiahs” came forward trying to persuade Jews to “return” to Palestine. The Haskala (“Jewish Enlightenment”) movement of the late 18th century, however, urged Jews to assimilate into Western secular culture. In the early 19th century interest in a return of the Jews to Palestine was kept alive mostly by Christian millenarians. Despite the Haskala, eastern European Jews did not assimilate and, in reaction to tsarist pogroms, formed the Ḥovevei Ẕiyyon (“Lovers of Zion”) to promote the settlement of Jewish farmers and artisans in Palestine.

 

A political turn was given to Zionism by Theodor Herzl, an Austrian journalist who regarded assimilation as most desirable but, in view of anti-Semitism, impossible to realize. Thus, he argued, if Jews were forced by external pressure to form a nation, they could lead a normal existence only through concentration in one territory. In 1897 Herzl convened the first Zionist Congress at Basel, Switzerland, which drew up the Basel program of the movement, stating that “Zionism strives to create for the Jewish people a home in Palestine secured by public law.

 

When the Ottoman government refused Herzl’s request for Palestinian autonomy, he found support in Great Britain. In 1903 the British government offered 6,000 square miles (15,500 square km) of uninhabited Uganda for settlement, but the Zionists held out for Palestine.

 

Upon the outbreak of World War I, political Zionism reasserted itself, and its leadership passed to Russian Jews living in England. Two such Zionists, Chaim Weizmann and Nahum Sokolow, were instrumental in obtaining the Balfour Declaration from Great Britain (November 2, 1917), which promised British support for the creation of a Jewish national home in Palestine. The declaration was included in Britain’s League of Nations mandate over Palestine (1922).

Revealing the intimate connection between the Rothschild family and the creation of Israel, the head of the Rothschild banking empire, and staunch supporter of Israel, Lord Jacob Rothschild, recently revealed the critical role of his family in the securing the Balfour Declaration, which “helped pave the way for the creation of Israel.”

The Balfour Declaration, written in 1917, was an official document from the British Foreign Minister, Lord Balfour, addressed to Lord Rothschild, a leader of the Zionist movement in Britain at the time – and Lord Jacob Rothschild’s uncle.

During the television interview with Rothschild, he revealed new details about the extremely pivotal role his cousin Dorothea de Rothschild played. Rothschild described Dorothea, who was in her teens at the time, as “devoted to Israel,” and said: ‘What she did was crucially important.’”

Rothschild went on to say that Dorothy acted as a conduit between Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann and the British political establishment. Dorothy “told Weizmann how to integrate, how to insert himself into British establishment life, which he learned very quickly,” according to Rothschild.

Rothschild explained that the manner in which the declaration was procured was extraordinary.

“It was the most incredible piece of opportunism,” he reasoned.

[Weizmann] gets to Balfour,” Rothschild described, “and unbelievably, he persuades Lord Balfour, and Lloyd George, the prime minister, and most of the ministers, that this idea of a national home for Jews should be allowed to take place. I mean it’s so, so unlikely.”

According to former Israeli Ambassador Daniel Taub, the Balfour Declaration “changed the course of history for the Middle East.”

Rothschild said his family at the time was divided on the idea of Israel, noting that some family members “didn’t think it was a good thing that this national home be established there.”

In her book, Against Our Better Judgment: The Hidden History of How the U.S. Was Used to Create Israel, Alison Weir exposed the fact that numerous drafts of the declaration were presented to Zionists in the United States prior to the document being finalized.

Weir’s book notes that one of the primary inducements offered to British leaders to issue the Balfour Declaration was the Zionist claim that they would bring the U.S. into world war I on Britain’s side if the British would promise to enable the Zionist colonization of Palestine.

The deeply intertwined relationship between modern Zionism and the Rothschild banking empire cannot be overstated. Without the Rothschild family’s vast influence and direct assistance, Israel very well may have never been created.

It seems that contrary to popular opinion, Trump isn’t opposing the globalist and Zionists, but rather, operating at the behest of his Zionist billionaire overlords, such as Jacob Rothschild and billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, to further entrench the state of Israel to the detriment of the surrounding Arab population who are treated as second-class citizens.
