Here's one for the Euros, at least those who are interested in peace activism, justice, and humanity in Palestine.
Gideon Levy is an outspoken Israeli journalist, who addressed an audience in Dundee on Monday, August 16 as part of a Scottish speaking tour which was organised by the pro-Palestine group, the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
In this video, Levy talked about Israel's abandonment of the pretense of diplomacy in favor of a policy of provocation and raw military power, with the ultimate aim of denying Palestinians any chance of forming their own independent state. Does anyone wonder why Abbas, the Palestinian leader at this time, has little faith in the peace process which is being encouraged by Obama? Obama in just less than a year has turned himself from the savior of Middle East peace into Netanyahu's poodle (a phrase used by Booman, which fits Obama's latest obsequience toward Israel).
Levy is really talking about the racist Likud agenda of the present government, which will screw Palestinians, and leave them living in a group of Bantustans inside of a Greater Israel, that will eventually be declared.
Gideon's latest book is entitled The Punishment of Gaza (published by Verso).
