GUEST: Josh Rubner, National Advocacy Director of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation and former analyst in Middle East Affairs at Congressional Research Service, discusses his new book, “Shattered Hopes: Obama's Failure to Broker Israeli-Palestinian Peace.” (prerecorded)
This is the first part of a talk given in December of 2014. Josh Rubner tells it like it is about the suffering in Gaza, and the US role in letting Israel get away with murder.
Granted, 500 children dying may just end up being a footnote in some history book. But the chapter will be on America's war crimes, from Korea to Vietnam, and continuing through the carnage the US has caused in the Middle East. What country will be publishing this history book, I do not know. Whether the human race will even have a history that extends that far is another open question.
What I do know is that my country has been "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world" for my generation. And like Martin Luther King, Jr and many before him, I grieve for what my homeland has become.
