247 – The Palestinian Arab Federation of Brazil (Fepal) criticized journalist Renata Lo Prete this Sunday (5) after the commentator suggested that the lack of birth control is one of the causes of child deaths in the Gaza Strip, where Israelis and Palestinians are in conflict. “Why do so many children die? A structural factor is the especially young demographics in the Gaza Strip,” she said. Fepal warned of the presenter’s “eugenicist tone”. “The ‘structural factor’ in child deaths is “Israel’s” INDISCRIMINATE BOMBING OF CIVILIAN TARGETS, not the birth rate.”
The journalist cited figures released by the United Nations (UN) and the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics. According to statistics, 40.4% of the 2.2 million inhabitants in Gaza are under the age of 0 to 14 and a rate of 3.9 children per woman on average. “Here in Brazil, the rate is 1.6 children per woman”, compared Renata.
Fepal had already criticized, this Saturday (4), both Globo and journalist Jorge Pontual following his comment about the conflict in the Middle East. On social media, politicians and journalists also repudiated the commentator’s analysis. The journalist apologized. He said he was only reporting the Israeli version, not endorsing it.
