Correspondent for Haaretz

Amira Hass has been a correspondent for Haaretz for 30 years, and has reported on the Occupied Territories since 1993. She was born in Jerusalem in 1956 and lives in Hebron in occupied Palestine. She is the daughter of two Holocaust survivors about whom she speaks with regard to her reporting on the daily violence imposed on Palestinians and Palestinian life by the Israeli government. Editors, she says, always want a new angle to her reports from the Occupied Territories as that is the nature of the "news". Her dilemma, she says, is that the violence and abuse of Palestinians is structured, systemic and unending, but about which she reports with skill and passion. Unlike most Israelis, she can not be a dispassionate observer of their plight, a condition that her mother observed in the German women who watched her arrival at the Nazi concentration camp Bergen-Belson.

She speaks of the Oslo Peace Agreement which she explains was never intended by the Israelis to result in a just outcome for the Palestinians and of "One State" with two peoples. In the Q&A she clarifies what Israeli means in its claim to be a "democracy" and speaks of the diminished human rights enforced on all others who are not "Jewish".

She is the author of several books, "Drinking the Sea In Gaza: Days and Nights in a Land under Siege" and "Reporting from Ramallah: An Israeli Journalist in an Occupied Land", and the recipient of many awards for her journalism and Human Rights reporting. She wrote the foreword and afterword to "Diary of Bergen-Belsen: 1944-1945", her mother Hanna Levey-Hass's account of her time in the Nazi concentration camp.
