GAZA: More than a Prelude to Genocide

Noted international law scholar, Richard Falk, characterized the siege of Gaza as a “prelude to genocide.” The situation now is even worse, as Israel’s use of collective punishment has led to a humanitarian, medical and economic disaster. The cutoff of supplies have left the people of Gaza living in the dark, cold and hungry; rendered their drinking water unsafe; threatened the lives of infants in incubators and patients on dialysis; and destroyed what little was left of the economy.

In this week’s Radio Intifada Special on Gaza, we will get the latest reports on the ground from Gaza and the West Bank, explore the question of Israeli war crimes, and report on the various actions and kinds of support that people can lend to the besieged people of Gaza.

Guests include:

Safaa Judeh, Gaza native who returned to Gaza last fall to train with Al Jazeera International, contributor to Electronic Intifada

Richard Falk, visiting professor of Global Studies, UC Santa Barbara

Sam Bahour, Palestinian American returnee to Palestine, activist, journalist, business leader

Also featuring a report on the 1/26 planned demonstration and medical convoy to Gaza by Gush Shalom; and protest and support actions in the US (see below and Radio Intifada page at www.kpfk.org for more information)

Produced and hosted by Sherna Gluck with Rana Sharif, SWANA (South &West Asia and North Africa) Collective, KPFK
