by Robert Fantina, with a foreword by Dr. Idrisa Pandit
“The world is awakening to Israeli apartheid. As with South Africa, it will not end overnight, but it will end, and Palestine will be free.” —Robert Fantina
Vital information to help understand the occupation of Palestine is provided in a series of essays by author and activist Robert Fantina. This includes information and commentary on the situation on the ground in Palestine, as well as on U.S. support for Israel’s occupation and war crimes. The attitudes of Israeli government officials are also discussed. While this information is presented within the framework of international law, there is also a separate section dealing with that topic specifically.
The essays in the book were originally published by CounterPunch, Mondoweiss, the Palestine News Network, and several other online journals. Included in this second edition is a new essay on Trump’s so-called “deal of the century.”
“Fantina’s essay collection is powerful, written in a lucid style, meant to prick our conscience. … This collection of essays, above all, is a call to humanity to hear the voice of persecuted people of Palestine …” —Idrisa Pandit, Director, Studies in Islam, Renison University College, University of Waterloo
“There are few issues so muddied (especially here in the U.S.) than the Zionist occupation of Palestine. I highly recommend this book for clarity and truth in an age where both are in such short supply.” —Cindy Sheehan, peace and social justice activist
“As Bob Fantina makes crystal clear, the U.S. government’s view of Israel as justified in any violation of law and worthy of billions of dollars worth of free weapons every year is false, immoral, and criminal. The view … of the Israeli government as a rogue terrorist organization is fact-based and critically important … Whether you’re new to the subject or painfully familiar with it, this book will enrich your understanding and your action.” —David Swanson, activist, journalist, radio host and author of War Is A Lie
