Date Uploaded: 2017-02-23 12:55:32.0Our feature presentation today is a conversation with the remarkable Israeli journalist and prolific author Amira Hass, who writes for the Israeli newspaper Haaretz. Among her prominent books: Drinking the Sea at Gaza: Days and Nights in a Land Under Siege (1999) and Shifting Sands: Jewish Women Confront the Israeli Occupation, 2015 Updated Edition (2010/2015). Her works are celebrated by the pro-justice community in Israel and worldwide. We have featured her at least twice on This Week In Palestine. Unsurprisingly, she is loudly criticized, condemned, and smeared by the racist pro-Zionist community.
That conversation is with Chris Hedges, renowned author and journalist who has written for the New York Times and many other publications. His recent books include Unspeakable (2016) and Wages of Rebellion (also 2016). Bestsellers include Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle (2010) and American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America (2008). Our parent show, Truth and Justice Radio, has featured him at least 10 times.
The conversation takes place on Hedges' RT television news program, On Contact.
Before that, we discuss recent developments relating to Israel's program of land theft. To steal vast tracts of Palestinian farmland, Israel frequently invokes "temporary" “military” or “security” reasons, purportedly allowed by The Hague Regulations. Use varies, but frequently it becomes an Israeli settlement.
On the hope-building side, a somewhat different strategy is being tried in a court challenge of Israel's abuses of "temporary" justification, asserting that it has now "expired" (even though it was phony from the beginning), and land must therefore be returned to its Palestinian rightful owners.
Predictably, on the hope-killing side, Israel's "leaders" have decided to short-circuit the effect of any court decision favorable to the original land owners quite simply, by passing and implementing a new law that declares all previous "temporary" seizures now permanent!
