Palestinian human rights advocate: World ignores PA corruption


Igal Hecht of TheRebel.Media interviews Bassem Eid, one of the top Palestinian human rights advocates.

Bassem began his career with Israeli organization, B’Tselem, documenting offenses committed by the Israeli army but in 1996, he resigned in order to create a Palestinian organization that would focus on the Palestinian Authority when he saw how little trust the Palestinians had in their own leadership.

He provides many examples for why that is and says that despite billions in international aid sent to over the past 20 years, the Palestinian people have little to show for it.

He also offers his unique perspective on what all those involved, including Israel, should do.
