In Part One one of our series on Palestine, we review the horrific events since October 7th as the death toll in Gaza reaches nearly 6,000.

We analyze the US role in funding and providing political cover for Israeli settler colonialism, apartheid and genocide in the occupied territories of Palestine.

We explore the history of Israel as a settler colonial regime that began in 1948.

We hear from various Jewish voices for peace- Dr. Norman Finkelstein, Holocaust survivor Dr. Gabor Maté, Jewish Voices for Peace as well as historians of holocaust and genocide who describe why what’s happening now in Gaza is a textbook definition of genocide.

We explore the history of the Zionist land claim on Palestine and deconstruct it through a settler-colonialist lens.

And we discuss Palestinian attempts at non-violent resistance that have been met with mass murder and extreme violence.

Stay tuned for Part Two of this series coming later this week.

We are in the midst of an information war, where non-corporate and independent voices are being highly suppressed and censored.
