Editor-in-chief of the Palestine Chronicle Ramzy Baroud joins Scott to discuss his latest article “Why Israel Feels Threatened by Popular Resistance in Palestine,” and his new book, “The Last Earth: A Palestinian Story.” Baroud’s goal is to change the narrative about the Palestinian people, which has been divided only between the extremes of terrorist and victim—but in reality the Palestinian people existed long before the birth of Zionism, and they’ll exist long after as well, Baroud says. Despite the popular resistance and the unwavering spirit of the Palestinian people, the on-going challenge remains to solidify leadership and a popular plan to secure freedom and a lasting peace.
