This Week In Palestine was created by Sherif Fam and is continued in his memory. Your host is John Roberts. Our feature presentation today is a recorded forum held during Apartheid Week at Harvard University. It features Cornel West, Dimi Khalidi, and Marc Lamont Hill. It begins with introductions by the moderator, Jamila Huessein.

But first, we begin with words out of Gaza, where that imprisoned population just celebrated the one year anniversary of the Great March of Return. It was highly recognized throughout the international community, which is why the Israeli hasbara [i.e. propaganda factory] felt compelled to push back. Their response was critiqued by one of Gaza’s most authentic voices, that of Professor Haidar Eid in the following statement that he wrote in Mondoweiss [excerpted here]:

“With the first anniversary of the Great March of Return, some disturbing questions have risen. Similar questions were raised in 2009, 2012, and 2014; in fact, this has been happening since 1948. It is becoming even more disturbing now to hear the same arguments being made by some of us who have internalized their subjugation by repeating the Israeli hasbara regarding our responsibility for our own death at the fence of the Gaza concentration camp! Victims blaming victims for their own death at the hands of Israeli snipers stationed on the other side of the eastern fence. Golda Meir, who unashamedly said that she would never forgive Palestinians for making Israeli soldiers kill them, would’ve been so delighted.

"[Also] to Israel’s delight, we are being told by certain sectors that Hamas is behind the Great March of Return. That Hamas has been inciting people, who happen to be ignorant and passive, [etc etc] ...."
