Video: In Wake of Settler Murders, Palestinian teenager kidnapped & murdered; while Israel flags more illegal colonies & strikes on Gaza

Palestinian writer and founder of Electronic Intifada, Ali Abunimah and Israeli journalist and film maker, Lia Tarachansky from The Real News Network discuss the revenge kidnap and murder of Palestinian teenager, Mohamed Abu Khdeir (aged 16 years)in the wake of direct incitement by Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli politicians, Israeli soldiers and the Israeli press following the announcement of the bodies of three kidnapped Israeli settlers had been found.

Abunimah and Tarachansky noted that the atmosphere of incitement has been fanned by Israel's 3 weeks of collective punishment against the Palestinian population in the Occupied West Bank and Gaza.

Both note that as part of "revenge" attacks promoted by the Israeli government are the re-occupation and bombing of Gaza and illegal Israeli settlement expanision in the Occupied West Bank.
