Watch part two
On Thursday, we speak with Amira Hass, one of the most powerful voices of dissent in the Israeli media.
She is the only Jewish-Israeli journalist to have spent years living in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
Her dispatches in the Israeli daily Haaretz on day-to-day life under occupation have incurred the wrath of both, Israeli and Palestinian officialdom.
She has compared the occupation to apartheid, argued against the use of the holocaust as a political asset, accused Israelis of racism, and attacked Fatah for creating chaos and disorder during the al-Aqsa Intifada.
She has written two books about her experiences: Drinking the Sea at Gaza: Days and Nights in a Land under Siege,
and Reporting from Ramallah: An Israeli Journalist in an Occupied Land
