The author spoke at the Revolution Books Town Hall Meeting at Ethical Culture Society on January 13, 2009

December 22, 2009

In this brilliant speech, former New York Times Mideast Bureau Chief Chris Hedges said, “The Israeli decision to rain death and destruction” on Gaza was aimed at “creating squalid, lawless, and impoverished ghettos in the West Bank and Gaza where life for Palestinians will be barely sustainable.”

The goal is ethnic cleansing, plain and simple.
