First, the latest update from the International Middle East Media Center (IMEMC); then, our main feature. It's an interview by Malihe Razazan with Mouin Rabani, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Palestine Studies and co-editor of Jadaliyya, on the underlying reasons for the latest Israeli assault on Gaza.
Israel is using false pretext to try to undo the PA-Hamas pact. Without evidence, and employing carefully choreographed theater, Israel blames Hamas for the unsolved deaths of three settler teen-agers. (Does this remind anyone of the US strategy to promote its wars on Afghanistan, then Iraq?)
The PA was Israel's servant, Hamas is not. One of Israel's PR strategies is changing the subject from its own brutal colonialism to its victim's supposed "terrorism."
