Antiwar Radio: Philip Weiss

Philip Weiss, investigative journalist and author of the blog MondoWeiss, discusses the small, secret Gaza aid flotilla that was thwarted by Israeli warships; why Israelís four year blockade of Gaza amounts to state terrorism against a civilian population; comparing the US response to Operation Cast Lead (in which over 1000 Palestinians were killed) and the allegedly forthcoming massacre of Libyan rebels in Benghazi; how aid flotillas succeed at grabbing international attention and further isolating the US diplomatically, even when they fail to deliver cargo; how Palestinian membership in UNESCO has forced the US to choose between protecting American corporations and coddling Israel; and why Americans still arenít well informed about Israel/Palestine issues.
