This is the video recording of today’s panel:
Richard Silverstein, journalist (USA)
Shir Hever, Israeli political economist (Germany)
Lubna Masarwa, journalist, Middle East Eye (Palestine)
We will address the war in Gaza, how it happened, and the outcome for both Israelis and Palestinians. We will also discuss the domestic impact the war has had internally inside Israel, including the shocking bouts of vigilante terrorism against Israeli Palestinians. What does that bode for future relations between the two communities?
Foreign nations and international bodies have been entirely absent and refused to weigh in in any significant way, which has only encouraged Israeli military assault. We will discuss the failure of the US and Pres. Biden in particular.
Silverstein has published Tikun Olam since 2003, It exposes the secrets of the Israeli national security state. He lives in Seattle, but his heart is in the east. He publishes regularly at Middle East Eye, the New Arab, and Jacobin Magazine. His work has also appeared in Al Jazeera English, The Nation, Truthout and other outlets.
