10/14/19 Ramzy Baroud on Israel’s Torture and Ethnic Cleansing of Palestinians

by | Oct 16, 2019

Ramzy Baroud joins the show for an update on Israel and Palestine. He wants to dispel some common misconceptions about Israel, starting with the fact that the country didn’t even exist before 1948, while Palestine has a history that goes back thousands of years. Today, Israel is commonly held to be the sole bastion of civilized liberal democracy in a sea of primitive radical Islamism, but Baroud says this too is incorrect. While Israel might be more advanced by certain metrics, they purposely obfuscate aspects of their government, like institutionalized torture of Palestinians and the history of ethnic cleansing, that we should all recognize as barbaric and medieval.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Palestinians Face Torture in Israeli Administrative Detention” (Antiwar.com Original)
  • “71 more Gaza protesters injured, 33 by live fire” (Mondoweiss)

Ramzy Baroud is a US-Arab journalist and is the editor-in-chief of the Palestine Chronicle. He is the author of My Father Was A Freedom Fighter: The Untold Story of Gaza. His new book is The Last Earth: A Palestinian Story. Follow Ramzy on Twitter @RamzyBaroud and read his work at RamzyBaroud.net.
