05/16/11 – Dean Ahmad – The Scott Horton Show

by | May 16, 2011 | Interviews

Imad-ad-Dean Ahmad, founder of the Minaret of Freedom Institute, discusses the typically sycophantic White House response to Israel’s shooting of peaceful Nakba protesters; Israel’s core founding myth, especially to Americans: no indigenous population existed (a.k.a. there is no such thing as a Palestinian); Palestinian peace activists initiating a third, peaceful, intifada in the spirit of the Arab Spring revolutions; the unquestioned absurdity of Israel “defending its borders” of the occupied Syrian Golan Heights, from Syrians; the Egyptian-moderated Fatah/Hamas unity agreement for new elections and a functioning coalition government; the interminable “peace process” that remains fatally flawed while the US refuses to act as a genuine “honest broker;” and how the hopelessly-devoted US Congress sees Israel as a crucial domestic priority, not an object of foreign policy.
