Understanding Israel Palestine: Beyond the Walls – “Can Israel be both Jewish and Democratic?” & “Conflating Judaism & Zionism: Bad for the Jews” with Richard Silverstein (2/26/21)
For this week’s show, Jeremy Rothe-Kushel speaks with Richard Silverstein about his recent journalism on matters suppressed by Israeli censors, and his upcoming webinar with Avraham Burg titled “Can Israel be both Jewish and Democratic?” based upon his article “Conflating Judaism & Zionism: Bad for the Jews.”
Richard Silverstein writes the Tikun Olam blog, devoted to exposing the excesses of the Israeli national security state. His work, based upon his intrepid reporter’s ear tuned to the Israel Palestine ground with consistently-applied internationally-relevant vision, has appeared in the Middle East Eye, Haaretz, the Forward, the New Arab, the Guardian, the Seattle Times and the Los Angeles Times amongst many other publications. He contributed to the essay collection devoted to the 2006 Lebanon war, A Time to Speak Out and has an essay in the collection, Israel and Palestine: Alternate Perspectives on Statehood.
