Special - Israeli Violence in Huwara, Palestine, Ep. 2 w/ Jalal Abukhater and Udi Greenberg
Danny and Derek are back with a two-part special episode on the violence in Huwara, Palestine. In the first half, Derek speaks with Jalal Abukhater, a Palestinian writer based in Jerusalem, about the background of recent settler violence in the West Bank, the details we know of the Huwara attack, the impunity with which settlers and the Israeli government act, and the Palestinian Authority and international community’s reaction to Huwara. Danny and Derek then speak with Udi Greenberg, associate professor of history at Dartmouth College, about the domestic Israeli dynamics at play behind the recent violence, the makeup of the current far-right government, its relation to the settler movement, the legal framework it is hoping to create, and more.
