Prof. Mazin Qumsiyeh of Bethlehem University discusses the longue durée of the progressive Zionist colonization of the Holy Land. He highlights the current siege-like situation in the ghetto of Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank, before going on to discuss the numerous Israeli assaults in the West Bank and their context in international law. He notes the deleterious effects on Palestine’s environment of colonization before turning his attention to Israel’s attempt to starve out the trapped Palestinian people in Gaza. The rhetoric of Israel’s leaders and the war crimes of its military lead him to an inescapable conclusion: the Israeli government is carrying out a genocidal campaign in the Gaza Strip.
