With far-right governments in power in both Washington and Jerusalem, an examination of Israel’s state-sponsored race wars against the indigenous Palestinians is in order.

David Sheen, born in Canada, is an journalist and filmmaker known for his clarifying reportings and analysis on the ground from the daily events in Israel and Palestine. For a wide variety of local, regional and international outlets. His work focuses primarily on racial tensions and religious extremism.
