First, current news on the recent Fatah-Hamas alliance and its icy dismissal by Israel; then a gripping talk by Max Blumenthal, author of "Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel."
Jewish himself, Blumenthal is getting attention with his frank analyses of Israel's moral collapse. He paints a startling portrait of Israeli society under the siege of increasingly authoritarian politics as its occupation of Palestine deepens day by day.
Blumenthal has been the butt of vicious hate messages and a death threat, apparently emitting from within the Zionist community. That's one way of confirming that what he says is really important.
In the preface to the book, Blumenthal wrote that it is "Americans’ tax dollars and political support that are crucial in sustaining the present state of affairs" in Israel and that, in the book, he wanted to show what that money is paying for and to present the facts, using the same journalistic methods used in his previous book, Republican Gomorrah, "as they really are today, in unadorned and unsanitized form, without sentimentality or nostalgia."
