Antiwar Radio: Noam Sheizaf

Noam Sheizaf, journalist at 972mag.com and keeper of the Promised Land blog, discusses Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s super-coalition government – the strongest since Israel’s founding; why Israel’s settler movement has nothing to fear from current political conditions in Israel and the US; how Israel’s citizens have lost interest in the West Bank occupation, much like Americans who couldn’t care less about Afghanistan; and why the occupation of Palestinian lands is best described as a joint Israel-US project.

Antiwar Radio: Noam Sheizaf

Noam Sheizaf, journalist and keeper of the Promised Land blog, discusses his article, “Settlers’ murder investigation turns into collective punishment;” the apartheid system on display as the entire Palestinian village of Awarta is subjected to the whims of an Israeli army murder investigation; the mass arrests, beatings, property destruction and theft that ultimately caught two murder suspects and laid bare the myth of Palestinian independence and self-rule; and how the army protected the Israeli settlers who jumped at the chance to seize more land.
