• rabbi barry marcus
rafeef ziadah, senior campaigns officer at War on Want, and human rights activist with the Palestinian BDS National Committee

(0:16:25) Matthew: “Rafeef, to what extent is your argument that there was de facto a Palestinian state before 1948, for example, if you take that particular moment, the establishment of Israel?”
(0:16:36) Rafeef: “Historically, in that part of the world, even referring back to Roman times, that area was referred to as Palestine. There is a Palestinian nation, I am a Palestinian person, I know that within Israeli and Zionist mythology they say Palestinians don’t exist, but the reality is Palestinians have always existed in that territory, and again I think the important part is to speak about human beings that are living in that area today, they should be able to have normal lives.”

yesterday evening (wednesday 23rd), 8.00-8.45pm, on bbc radio 4
just war and gaza (in the moral maze series) presented by michael buerk
panellists: matthew taylor, melanie phillips, giles fraser and jill kirby
witnesses: colonel richard kemp, mehdi hasan, dr hugo slim and ted honderich.

“The gruesome and heart rending pictures this week of the broken and shattered bodies of innocent people caught in the cross fire has demonstrated just how rotten the euphemism “collateral damage” really is.
As the body count rises and we try to make a judgement between right and wrong and competing narratives of victimhood we’re confronted by the terrible calculation “how many innocent victims are acceptable? When does a military operation go from being a legitimate act of war or self-defence to being disproportionate, illegal and immoral?
