As Gaza undergoes the second invasion and third seige since 2008, the world is finally reacting with sustained anger at Israeli aggression. The same tired arguments are being used to justify what the UN is now calling war crimes by Israel, but fewer people than ever are buying the lies. To effectively counter the lies and gain support for justice in Palestine, we have to be armed with the facts.
If you want to participate in a discussion that goes beyond the usual talking points, join us on SFPI Radio on Saturday, July 26 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST when we will be talking to two experts who will share their unique perspectives.
No one knows better than Rich Forer the real history of Israel and how it explains its actions in this conflict, Forer is a former member of AIPAC and the author of Breakthrough: Transforming Fear into Compassion, A New Perspective on the Israel-Arab Conflict. He will be providing perspective to understand the situation in the first hour.
In the second, former NSA analyst Scott Rickard will join us to talk about the internal politics of Palestine, a topic that is almost never discussed and is little understood outside the region. His insights will help us understand the practical political obstacles Palestinians will still have to face even if world pressure finally forces Israel to negotiate for a just peace.
