Chris Hedges and Norman Finkelstein on the Future of Gaza (Video)
In a detailed discussion about the current state of affairs in Gaza as well as what the future could hold, author and scholar Norman Finkelstein tells Chris Hedges that nonviolent mass resistance in Gaza “can’t succeed without our support.”
The “On Contact” episode begins with a list of statistics about Gaza, including frightening rates of youth unemployment, suicide and prostitution, as well as water contamination and other conditions created by Israeli attacks on the region, all of which paint a tragic picture of “the world’s largest concentration camp.”
The two then talk about Finkelstein’s recent book, “Gaza: An Inquest Into Its Martyrdom,” which Hedges says is “the most important book I’ve read on Gaza, [and which] implodes Israeli propaganda and Israeli lies.”
