Juan Cole on Gaza

program date: 
Mon, 07/28/2014

Laurie Mercier talks with historian and Middle-East specialist Juan Cole about current events in Gaza. They discuss Israel's motives in launching its attack, and the history of Israel's occupation of Palestine, attacks on Hamas, and expansion of settlements in the West Bank. In addition, Laurie and Professor Cole discuss the role of the US: the failure of much of the US mainstream media to report adequately on events in Palestine; the US support for Israel; the impact of financial contributions on corrupt US legislators; and the possibility that the US could make all the difference by withholding its veto of UN security-council measures censuring Israel. 18:14 minutes (8.35 MB)
