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.

Moderne oorlogsvoering heeft nieuwe vormen aangenomen. Grote internationale slagvelden lijken een zaak van het verleden. Maar hoe houden de belangrijkste wereldmachten dan nu hun greep op de mensen?

Body: 

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....

Right-wing prime minister Binyamin "Bibi" Netanyahu's Likud Party, in alliance with the right-wing extremist Yisrael Beiteinu (Israel is Our Home) party, lost at least 10 seats.... Read more

According to Forbes magazine, during Hagel’s tenure in the Senate, “he favored school prayer, missile defense and drilling in Alaska, while opposing abortion, same-sex marriage and limits on assault guns.
