Jeff Halper's latest book is "War Against the People: Israel, the Palestinians and Global Pacification." In this wide-ranging interview, Halper asks, rhetorically, why Israel continues to get away with its outrageous and illegal behavior. His answer: a universe of shared interests and interdependency among the U.S. and Israeli weapons makers, police militarists, and "security" forces. Essentially, they have an incestuous relationship. You, I, and the Palestinians don't matter.

Israel has learned about war against people (as opposed to wars against nations). It develops the art, develops the weapons, and tries them out. It's a high-tech leader, producing more and more vicious weapons, surveillance, and repression technology, thoroughly tested - on Palestinians. These are prized by repressive governments everywhere, especially our own. U.S. police recruits go to Israel for training. They come back equipped with assault weapons. That's what accommodates the rampant militarization of U.S. police.

The real bosses of the world love and nurture Israel, and Israel loves and helps them. As Halper explains, that's why they can exploit and murder Palestinians without challenge.

This interview was originally aired last spring, but deserves more attention. Here it is again, lightly edited.
