Israel, which Human Rights Watch and many others have designated as an “Apartheid state”, has "elected" (only one in five Palestinian adults allowed to vote) a religious Zionist nationalist right wing government. This religious Zionism is openly racist and considers Palestinians as intruders in their vision of a Greater Israel given by God as their homeland. Some of the leaders in the new government openly proclaim reverence for mass murders of Palestinians. Bill Resnick interviews David Finkle about whether international pressure can be escalated to stop the intensified oppression and slow-motion ethnic cleansing. David Finkle is the editor of the journal Against the Current and writes on the Middle East, particularly Israel/Palestine.
