11/18/19 Reese Erlich on Palestine, Lebanon, and Iraq

by | Nov 19, 2019

Reese Erlich has the latest on some of the many conflicts in the Middle East today. He first discusses the strange fact that most Americans seem utterly unaware of what’s going on between the Israelis and the Palestinians whose land they are occupying. Too often, the narrative is simply that Israel is an advanced, first world country that wants peace, and Palestine is just a group of savage terrorists bent on murdering Israelis. Erlich moves on to discuss the latest with the demonstrations in Lebanon and Iraq, where people face appalling conditions thanks to civil unrest that in many cases was America’s fault to begin with.

Discussed on the show:

  • “A New Arab Spring in Lebanon and Iraq” (Common Dreams)
  • “In Strike That Killed 5 Children, Israel Said It Took Out Gaza Militant. Now It Isn’t Sure.” (The New York Times)
  • “West Bank settlements not illegal, Pompeo announces in historic shift – Israel News” (Jerusalem Post)
  • “Leaked Intelligence Reports Expose How Iran Dominates Iraq” (The Intercept)

Reese Erlich is a freelance journalist who has reported from the Middle East for decades. His nationally distributed column, Foreign Correspondent, appears every two weeks. He is the author of The Iran Agenda Today: the Real Story of U.S. Policy and the Middle East Crisis. Find him on Twitter at @ReeseErlich or at his website.
