6/13/18 Ramzy Baroud on the Gaza border protests and the nature of the discussion around Palestine

Ramzy Baroud returns to the show to discuss his latest book, The Last Earth: A Palestinian Story, the propaganda coming from both the American and Israeli media, and the changing nature of the conversation around Palestine. Baroud, a harsh critic of Obama’s, Trump’s, and the United Nations’ strategies toward Israel, explains what the U.S. is doing wrong, and how the few good things are often “too little, too late.”
Baroud argues that the terms “conflict”, and even “occupation”, are incorrect, and that the only accurate way of viewing the situation is as colonization by a secular state. The terms we use have implications in international law and influence any potential solution.
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.
