teleSUR English on Mar 6, 2017

In a rare, candid conversation, Abby Martin interviews a former Israeli Army combat soldier who served as an occupier in Palestine’s Hebron City.

Eran Efrati spent years as a sergeant and combat soldier in the Israeli military, but has since become an outspoken critic of the occupation of Palestine and Israeli apartheid.

Efrati gives explosive testimony on the reality of his service and explains how war crimes are institutionalized, as well as how systematic the oppression against Palestinians really is in a war of conquest that will no-doubt be accelerated under the Trump Administration.

  18. I completely agree. A representative new state, equal rights based on the rule of law.

    That will require us to fully discredit, deconstruct and expose this US-zionist brain-washing dictatorship & call it what it really is, an institutionalized theocratic psychosis that is a lethal liability to the development of mankind. The solution is not bigger and better toys of American destruction, but enlightened sociobiological imagination.

    This mesmeric state of mass-conditioned paralytic fear & totalitarian misrule, constitutes the greatest center of pestilence on Earth. A terminal black hole that sucks the benign cosmopolitan energy of the world across its event horizon and restricts it. The trick is now to find the formula that reverses this magnetic illusion, dispels the false sense of gravitational inevitability and liberates the real ‘quantum loop’ potential of the Middle-east.

    This is a very revealing & inspiring conversation. Excellent.

    • The difference between America in 1492 and Palestine in 1948 is that people in the Middle East had 450 years of American history to learn from, and that while Native Americans had only insufficient bows and arrows to resist, the indigenous people of the Middle East had far more powerful weaponry. With luck and perhaps divine intervention future generations will look back upon the Israel-Palestine conflict as the “last Indian war”.
