S4:E13 The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
May 17, 2021
In just the last week, the situation in occupied Palestine and the larger region has seen a dramatic shift. A new wave of resistance has sparked militant mass protests not only in cities and towns across the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza, but also in many Palestinian or “mixed” cities inside the 1948 borders of Israel. Violence that began in East Jerusalem in April has expanded to military attacks from both Israel and Palestine. Large scale injuries and fatalities have been reported. Clashes have broken out between Palestinian Arabs and Jewish groups in Israel. The international community looks divided and readying for taking sides in the current Israel-Palestine conflict if it aggravates to another war. In this week’s episode we are going to try and unpack this conflict and the larger global implications.
