Around the world in the wake of Israel's latest brutal and illegal assault on Gaza, awareness of the pernicius nature of Zionism is building. Conversations have started in the US and Europe that were previously considered unthinkable due to the collective guilt of the world about allowing the conditions that gave rise to the Holocaust. While politicians in the US continue to be effectively captives of AIPAC and the rest of the Israeli lobby, the blatant attempt by Netanyahu to undermine President Obama's foreign policy again by speaking directly to the Israeli loyalists that control Congress have led a few to rebel in a small way.
A brilliant campaign to target an multibillion dollar Israeli government-controlled shipping company, recent successes in the BDS movement, increasing protests from the US religious community and a general increase in the visibility of American and European oppostion to Israeli belligerence and Zionism itself offers for the first time since the Nakba the prospect that Israel can be compelled to become the democratic state that it purports to be.
Former AIPAC member Rich Forer, author of Breakthrough: Transforming Fear into Compassion, A New Perspective on the Israel-Palestine Conflict, joins us to talk about the increasing movmentum of the Palestinian solidarity movement.
