New World Notes: #573 -- Robert Fisk and Chris Hedges, Segment 1

2 months 3 weeks ago
In separate talks, two fine journalists discuss current affairs--ROBERT FISK and CHRIS HEDGES. Different in style, they are alike in their hatred of lies and propaganda, their command of recent history--and their disdain for Trump's presidency. Fisk discusses the war in Syria, Iran, Putin, Trump, and the flood of propaganda in the media. Hedges discusses how social justice requires economic justice and also effective means of nonviolently overturning established power. Plus a song by Yikes McGee.

This Week In Palestine: Former IDF soldier Eran Efrati speaks out on policing and the Deadly Exchange program, Segment 1

2 months 3 weeks ago
Eran Efrati reports that he left the IDF because he objected to what it does. He spoke in great detail recently in Boston on policing and the U.S.-Israel Deadly Exchange. The Deadly Exchange consists of American and Israeli police visiting each others' countries, all expenses paid, nominally by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and other captured but supposedly respectable NGOs, but ultimately borne by U.S. taxpayers, to learn their counterparts' "best practices" and "up-to-the-minute security measures." That's why we're seeing more military weapons, more surveillance, more "terrorist" rhetoric, and more fascism from the cops whose job is to protect us. ADL's involvement appears designed to earn the approval of those who haven't yet learned that ADL was taken over by the Israel-can-do-no-wrong claque. It's no longer a Jewish-oriented civil rights organization. Now it's using its muscle to support and defend the state of Israel, decreeing that any criticism of Israel or its murderous policies is "antisemitic." Eran also explains the U.S. military's procedure in giving away "surplus" tanks, bombs, drones, weapons systems, heavy riot gear, etc., to local police departments. (They must actually use it within a year, or it goes back.)
