Aims and Means – new podcast by Akevot

Today we launch our first podcast series, Aims and Means.

The first season of Akevot’s Aims and Means podcast deals with several key themes that characterized – and continue to characterize – the Israeli occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip and Golan Heights , as well as the occupation of the Sinai Peninsula (1967-1982): expulsion of local residents, establishment of settlements, selective law enforcement, and violations of international law. The six episodes each reveal a unique, fascinating, and almost entirely unknown story, based on archival research by Akevot Institute.

In six episodes, the podcast focuses on six events we have been studying for years. Today, we release the first two installments, both of which tell never before told stories. “Operation Patient” reveals a campaign for the expulsion of hundreds of Palestinian detainees to Jordan in the early 1970s. The second installment, “Exiled in the Sinai,” tells the story of two detention camps Israel set up in the Sinai Desert, where it held residents of the Gaza Strip who were suspected of nothing.

You can listen to the first two episodes as of today on all podcast platforms. They are also available on our website, along with key documents we have uncovered in various archives and on which the podcast is based.
