Palestinian/Canadian attorney Diana Buttu spoke at Tufts University on 11-16-16. She was introduced by Professor Tom Abowd. As Buttu relates, throughout his eight years in office, President Barack Obama promised concern, then turned his back over and over, essentially giving Israel free rein to clobber the Palestinians, bomb them, shoot them, jail them, segregate them, steal their land, demolish their homes, oppress them, and more.

One of Obama's more outrageous tricks was authorizing John Kerry with much ballyhoo to pose as neutral arbiter between Israel and Palestine, just as though they were equally powerful contenders, neither one favored by the US. Meanwhile the US was and is israel's biggest supporter, providing billions of dollars annually to buy ever more weapons and bombs. Another trick was pretending concern as israel stole more and more Palestinian land, the best land, in order to build settlements.

Before Buttu's address, we hear why BDS is clearly legal, and in use by groups both for and against justice, followed by a Palestinian journalist's observation of parallels between Palestine's and Standing Rock's struggles.
