Miko Peled hosts a roundtable discussion with Chris Williamson (Former Labour Party MP), Asa Winstanley (Journalist), and Tony Greenstein (Activist, Author) who will analyze the events and forces that led to Corbyn’s fall at the hands of pro-Israels special interest groups. Chris Williamson, Asa Winstanley, and Tony Greenstein all faced pressure and/or oustings from their respective roles within the UK Labour Party over similar smears of “antisemitism”. In this online event, we will hear from each of these esteemed UK journalists, politicians and activists who have been directly affected by and witnessed this vast smear campaign and political suppression on the ground level.

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.
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.
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.
