Here’s What You Need to Know about Gaza’s History

Talking heads on television and the Internet seem to have a wealth of opinions about the Hamas attacks and Israeli reprisals, yet actual understanding of the history of Gaza is often wanting.

Prof. Norman Finkelstein breaks down some of the essentials to understanding what led Israelis and Palestinians into this armed conflict.

Norman G. Finkelstein received his doctorate in 1988 from the Department of Politics at Princeton University. He taught political theory and the Israel-Palestine conflict for many years and currently writes and lectures. Finkelstein’s books have been translated into 50 foreign editions. His latest is Gaza: An Inquest into Its Martyrdom (University of California Press, January 2018).

One Response to “The Truth about Gaza”

  1. Poka Laenui says:

    This is an excellent presentation of a different view of Gaza, providing an appreciation of the frustration that must exist among the Palestinians. The video is far too short, leaving out many important aspects of the current violence between Israel and Gaza. What is also needed is a much broader look at the situation between Israel and all of Palestine. There also needs to be a program of how to bring about a peaceful and fair resolution to the current conflict. I believe that the efforts of China in the United Nations contain elements of such a peace solution. Now that China chairs the Security Council for the month, perhaps we will see ideas which can add to the discussion. Along with that, we should put up the Transcend method and the specific proposal from Johan Galtung on how to resolve the conflict. Aloha
