Supporters of Israel all over the world and freedom and democracy loving Americans and Europeans should listen to award-winning Israeli journalist and author Gideon Levy words about the unprecedented human tragedy Gaza-Israel war unfolding in the Middle East..
His recent editorial column for Haaretz headline says:
“Israel Can’t Imprison Two Million Gazans Without Paying a Cruel Price.”
Watch the Democracy Now video below where Levy discusses the reaction within Israeli society toward Hamas’s unexpected attack and condemns the Netanyahu government for only mobilizing for further warfare rather than providing effective assistance to victims.
“Nobody is leading Israel,” declares Levy, who also calls for Israel to lift its blockade of Gaza and accept that its campaign of eradicating Hamas is “impossible.” After decades of Palestinian subjugation under Israeli rule, “you can kill the current top people of Hamas, but you will not kill the ideology of Hamas,” says Levy.
