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.

Join the conversation. This episode of the Riz Khan show can be seen live on Thursday, October 22, 2009 at 2030GMT, with repeats on Friday at 0030GMT, 0530GMT and 0530GMT.
