HARDtalk: Raja Shehadeh

last monday morning (16th march), 12.30-12.55am, on bbc news tv (freeview channel 80 or 130) (repeated on bbc world service radio that afternoon, at 1.05pm and 8.05pm)
raja shehadeh (presented by zeinab badawi) (in the hardtalk series)

Zeinab Badawi talks to the award-winning Palestinian author and lawyer Raja Shehadeh. For three decades he has written many books about human rights and the Israeli occupation.
His family were forced to leave Jaffa in 1948 and settled in Ramallah on the West Bank, where he lives today.
He says he hopes his work has helped further the cause of peace but has it?”
(0:16:46) “Moshe Dayan, after the occupation, said [Badawi: “that was the Minister of Defence years ago?”], Minister of Defence, said Israel is now an empire

… this repeats a passage from shehadeh’s new book, Language of War, Language of Peace: Palestine, Israel and the Search for Justice (2015, Profile Books):

After Israel’s victory in the June War of 1967, Moshe Dayan, the Minister of Defence, had declared that Israel was now an empire.”

from her interruption, it is clear that interviewer zeinab badawi was already familiar with this quotation

however, other sources place the quotation as being from an israel radio interview of 12th february 1952 (whether this is true, i have been unable to verify … but shehadeh’s dating of it to 1967 is clearly an invention)
