On the fourth day of Israel bombardment of Gaza, Palestinian political scientist Leila Farsakh interpreted Israeli and Palestinian actions in the context of domestic and regional goals, as well as media coverage that largely justified Israel's latest attack on a largely defenseless population. Code-named Operation Pillar of Defense, the Israeli offensive took place almost exactly four years after Operation Cast Lead, Israel's three-week assault on Gaza by Israeli sea, land, and air forces which left over 1,300 Palestinians dead and displaced as many as 90,000 people, causing a major humanitarian crisis.
With Leila Farsakh, Palestinian political economist and Associate Professor of Political Science at University of Massachusetts Boston.
