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.
Despite my having explained the truth to them, Press TV misinforms its audience that the status of East Jerusalem under international law is “controversial” (it’s not) and that the goal of the so-called “peace process” was to realize the two-state solution (it wasn’t).
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.
Zionist Jack Sigman attacks me and my writings on Palestine, but his arguments serve only to reveal his own racist rejection of Palestinians’ rights and willful ignorance of the facts.
My message for the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, November 29, 2017, on the hope for the freedom of Palestine.
The mainstream media serve Israel’s occupation regime by failing to inform that for the US to relocate its Israel embassy to Jerusalem would be illegal.
Once the greatest obstacle to peace between Israelis and Palestinians is correctly identified, the path forward to a just resolution reveals itself.
The mainstream media perpetually deceives readers about what the two-state solution is in order to manufacture consent for the US’s rejection of it.
