Israel

Jeff Halper pesenteert zijn nieuwste boek "War against the People: Israel, the Palestinians and Global Pacification"

In War against the People laat Jeff Halper zien hoe de wereldmachten, waaronder Israël, vandaag de dag hun oorlogen uitvechten. Een gesublimeerde oorlog door controle en verdoezelde terreur uitgevoerd door middel van nieuwe, high-tech militaire middelen. Middelen die vaak door Israël ontworpen zijn en uitgetest op de Palestijnse bevolking. Israël globaliseert nu die ervaringen.

Waar westerse overheden hun greep op het gebruik van private informatie versterken en individuele vrijheden beperken, komt War against the People als noodzakelijke waarschuwing dat fundamentele mensenrechten in het geding raken en dat niemand daaraan voorbij zou mogen gaan. Jeff Halper toont overtuigend aan hoe zeer de Israelische wapens en onderdrukkingstaktieken overal gebruikt kunnen worden door de elites.

But so far, the government has allowed them to export only their knowledge — not the actual product. Michael Dor, the senior medical adviser in the Israeli Health Ministry’s cannabis unit, said that in ongoing government talks, agricultural officials support the export of Israeli medical cannabis, but top officials in the police force, army and executive branch oppose it.

The pope’s visit was carefully orchestrated—shaped not only by security concerns but by his insistence on avoiding Israeli checkpoints.
