Aims and Means: the last episode of the podcast’s first season is now available

Our podcast series “Aims and Means” reaches the end of the first season: the sixth and final episode of the season, “There Would Be No End”, went online and is now available to listen here on the website and on all podcast platforms. This episode goes back to the story of two Border Police officers who left their base on an autumn afternoon in October 1967. After a truck with two Palestinian workers almost collided with their car, the policemen drove the two Palestinians to an open field where they fired 17 bullets into their backs. What led to the random murder? This was one of the few cases – if not the only case – in which a member of the Israeli security forces was convicted for murdering Palestinians.

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.

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