Scott interviews Philip Weiss about Israel’s occupation of Palestine and the way the Palestinian people have been completely deprived of their rights there. Weiss is glad that the recent fiasco around Rashida Tlaib’s and Ilhan Omar’s visit to Israel has brought publicity to the BDS movement, but is baffled that most Americans are either unaware of Israel’s gross abuses, or simply don’t care.
Discussed on the show:
- “Trump is parroting Zionist doctrine: U.S. Jews must be loyal to Israel” (Mondoweiss)
- “Political Upheaval Over Tlaib and Omar Shows the Power of BDS | Common Dreams Views” (Common Dreams)
- “’50-year-old Palestinians… have never lived in freedom their whole lives,’ Rivera says on Fox, defending Tlaib” (Mondoweiss)
