In this interview with Press TV, I explain why Trump moving the US embassy to Jerusalem actually presents an opportunity to move forward toward a just peace, why US policy is so overtly prejudicial toward Palestinians rights, and what the major obstacles are that remain to be overcome.
In “Palestine’s Horizon: Toward a Just Peace”, Richard Falk emphasizes the present need “to take stock, and reformulate a vision and strategy to guide the Palestinian struggle”. The book is an invaluable contribution precisely because it goes so far in doing just that.
There is a strong tendency among Palestinian supporters to equate the two-state solution with the goal of the US-led so-called “peace process”. This is a fundamental error with important strategic consequences in terms of achieving an end to Israel’s occupation regime.
Contrary to the popular Zionist myth upon which the entire so-called “peace process” was premised, UN Security Council Resolution 242 requires Israel to fully and immediately withdraw its armed forces from occupied Palestine.
Milena Rampoldi of the blog ProMosaik interviews me about Palestine, including whether the two-state solution is dead, and the state of journalism.
I spoke to Press TV about Israel’s escalation of illegal settlement activity and why now is actually an opportunity for Palestinians to seek justice.
Ironically, Netanyahu and Trump being in power in Israel and the US, respectively, is the best thing that could happen for the prospects of peace.
