Noura Erakat is a Palestinian-American Human Rights attorney and activist. She speaks about the evolution of International Law and Human Rights and provides a brief historical landscape of the Nation State and the late in coming Zionist colonial project.
She speaks about the failure of the community of States that form the International legal system to follow through with proscribed sanctions against the State of Israel for violating civilized norms, as proscribed in various treaties and declarations. She explains the different levels of Rights that Israel assigns people with-in and outside its undeclared borders and unpacks Israeli State policy; one structured to deny Arab residents and Palestinians in occupied territory their basic human rights. Why does Israel operate with impunity? She answers that question and offers a perspective on what is to be done.
