Episode #47 - #FreePalestine with Dalia Fakih

June 10, 2021

It's Episode #47 - #FreePalestine and we are joined by Dalia Fakih to talk about the very important issues that face us with regard to Palestine and Israel. We aim to set these discussions in a historical context and in light of the recent reports from Human Rights Watch and B’Tselem, which categorise Israel to be an apartheid state that persecutes the Palestinian people in the occupied territories, Israel proper and the Gaza Strip. 

 

Key Message: As Martin Luther King once said, “injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

 

Some of the key points we touch on in this episode:

- Zionism and History

- Geographical lay of the land

- Current situation - this is a human rights issue

- Recent escalations - how did this gain momentum?

- Media, censorship and international complicity

- Distinction between criticism of Israel & anti-semitism

- What is different this time and the solution?

- How to help
