5/13/21 Max Blumenthal on the Real History of Israel-Palestine

Scott talks to Max Blumenthal about the true state of affairs between Israel and Palestine, which you won’t hear about in most mainstream media sources. Although the situation is often depicted as two neighboring states engaged in a religious conflict, the truth is that the Palestinians are second-class citizens in what has become a de facto single apartheid state. The widely-publicized rocket attacks are the actions of an oppressed minority fighting back in the only way they can. Any violence against Israeli civilians is of course condemnable, but we can’t lose sight of the fact that Israel has a massive advantage in money, weapons and international support, and has been killing innocent Palestinians for decades. Scott and Blumenthal also discuss the extent to which Iran actually supports Hamas
