Israel/Palestine News


TRNN's Shir Hever says although the reality of apartheid is obvious and
uncontroversial to most Israelis, the recent United Nations report

Lecture by journalist David Sheen at the University of Arizona in Tucson
on 6 March 2017 • SUMMARY: With far-right governments in power in both
Washington and Jerusalem, an examination of Israel’s state-sponsored
race wars against indigenous Palestinians and African refugees is in
order. An unflinching look at the last eight years under Netanyahu, and
specifically the past year 2016, serves as a primer on his racist
playbook – one which Trump seems keen on implementing here at home. Can
Americans of conscience help roll back the rise of the racist right,
both in the USA and in Israel and Palestine?
