Richard Falk reports that “Progressive Except Palestine” journalist Thomas Friedman is an unapologetic Israel apologist, putting a positive spin on Israeli actions that can be spun, and simply avoiding comment on issues when it’s convenient.
Professors Richard Falk and Virginia Tilley provide detailed reports confirming that Israel is perpetrating “apartheid,” a crime against humanity. Those desiring peace must abandon an illusory “two-state solution” with its focus on the occupation, and instead address the fundamental obstacle to peace: Israel’s racist system. The papers were presented at the launch of a new international network, The 1st Global Conference on Israeli Apartheid. (Includes videos of their speeches)
Richard Falk discusses critical Middle East topics, including the legality of Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem, Iran and Trump’s “special relationships” with Israel and Saudi Arabia, the future of Syria, and hope for justice in Israel-Palestine.
