I spoke to Aaron Mate of The Real News about our exclusive release of clips from The Lobby — USA, Al Jazeera’s censored film about groups in the US close to the Israeli government and how they are spying on US citizens.

This is the video of a talk that Brighton Palestine Solidarity Campaign invited me to give at their annual AGM in June.
In it I talk about: the role of independent media within the Palestine solidarity movement, specifically The Electronic Intifada; and about Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs and its covert war against BDS, the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement.
Here’s the video of a talk I gave in May at Bristol’s Palestine Museum, a great local activist project.
In it I talk about the modern day legacy of the Nakba, the Israeli ethnic cleansing of 750,000 Palestinians in 1948; BDS, the boycott divestment and sanctions movement against Israeli apartheid; and Israel’s current war against Palestine solidarity.
Thanks to the Palestine Museum for inviting me to take part.
I appeared on RT reviewing the news.
My appearance on The Real News to discuss Israel’s covert campaign against the BDS movement. Transcript on The Real News website. The articles discussed in the interview are here and here.
I appeared in Al Jazeera’s four-part undercover documentary The Lobby, which aired in January. I was in parts one and two, which you can view above (the videos should skip straight to my contributions). All four parts can be viewed here.
The film led to the forced resignations of Israeli embassy officer Shai Masot and civil servant Maria Strizzolo.
Click here to read the article I wrote mentioned in the film, which had exposed Jewish Labour Movement director Ella Rose’s former role as an Israeli embassy officer. It was the article which led for her to express the wish for me to “die in a hole,” as seen in part two above.
I appeared on the Real News back in January, talking about the Israeli embassy scandal. You can watch the video above, and read my take on Shai Masot here.
I appeared on Sputnik News back in January talking about the Israeli embassy scandal over Shai Masot, its disgraced senior political officer. You can listen to the segment here.
An Israeli embassy official has been caught on camera plotting to “take down” British MPs regarded as hostile. Senior political officer Shai Masot was recorded by an undercover reporter from Al Jazeera making comments about several politicians including foreign office minister Alan Duncan. We hear from journalist Asa Winstanley.

I appeared on Turkish channel TRT World debating the current witch hunt in the Labour Party targeting leftists and supporters of Palestine. See my EI blog post for more details on the programme .
My colleague David Sheen was assaulted by the mob at a recent “Death to the Arabs” rally in Tel Aviv, for the crime of trying to film it.
Israel also of course habitually blames Palestinians for their own deaths – in wars started by Israel. In a transparent case of psychological projection, Israel blames Palestinian civilian deaths on the (imaginary) use of “human shields” by Palestinian resistance fighters.
In reality, civilians are killed because of Israel’s habit of bombing, shelling and destroying entire civilian neighbourhoods. And, in fact, as is well documented by human rights groups, it is Israel that uses Palestinian victims as human shields.
