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.

The last days of the campaign sounded an awful lot like the Jim Crow South, when African Americans had officially won the right to vote but still faced massive discrimination....
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. Exports face stringent...

The pope’s visit was carefully orchestrated—shaped not only by security concerns but by his insistence on avoiding Israeli checkpoints. American and other official visitors often work diligently to avoid having to see—or be photographed seeing—the hundreds of Israeli checkpoints or the apartheid wall that snakes through the West Bank, separating Palestinians from their land and dividing the...
The tributes are already pouring in, including from Secretary of State John Kerry, who paid lip service to occasional disagreements with Sharon, but reassured Israel that “Our nation shares your loss and honors Ariel Sharon’s memory.” For the rest of the world, of course, there is nothing – nothing – remotely honorable in the legacy of Israel’s perhaps most consistent war criminal....
