Phyllis Bennis interview: Part 1, Historical Amnesia and Gaza

On the eleventh day of the Israeli military operation in the Gaza Strip, two UN schools were bombed by Israeli jets. The schools were housing people who had been displaced from their homes as a result of the conflict, and the Associate Press reports that 37 civilians were killed in the attacks. As the costs of the conflict to civilian populations continues to increase, the Real News spoke to Phyllis Bennis to find out what international law has to say about the events. Phyllis believes that while certain key members of the UN apparatus have spoken out against international law violations, the power structure of the Security Council continues to make definitive action impossible.

great video. You might also want to check out this video from the BBC where an ex-Israeli Defense Force pilot says that Obama can’t act like a “slave” to AIPAC anymore. I’m not kidding. Live on BBC.

إنّ القضية الفلسطينية اليوم أهم قضية، و قد کانت طيلة النصف الثاني من القرن العشرين أهم قضية في العالم الإسلامي، و لعلها کانت أهم قضايا الإنسانية کلها. انها محنة شعب وقع عليه تشريد وظلم، انها قضية احتلال بلد. انها قضية زرع غدّة سرطانية في قلب البلدان الإسلامية و في نقطة التقاء شرق العالم الإسلامي مع غربه، و انها قضية ظلم مستمر تعرض له جيلان متتاليان من ابناء الشعب الفلسطيني المسلم، و اليوم حيث اصبحت النهضة الإسلامية الدامية التي تعتمد علی جماهير الشعب في الأراضي المحتلة تشکل خطراً حقيقیاً و جاداً علی المحتلين المجرمين الفاقدين للضمائر والإنسانية.السید القائد الامام الخامنئی
