The US is not just complicit, but an enabler of Israel’s genocide in Gaza (Prof. Avi Shlaim)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Israeli-British Historian Avi Shlaim, Emeritus Professor of International Relations at the University of Oxford and author of ‘Three Worlds: Memoirs of an Arab-Jew’. He discusses why it is clear that Israel is committing war crimes & genocide against Palestinians in Gaza and ethnic cleansing in the West Bank. He also raises British and European complicity in Israeli war crimes and why the US is not just complicit in genocide but also an enabler. Shlaim highlights how the US military-industrial complex is profiteering from Israel’s slaughter, why Israel does not have the right to defend itself under international law and the weaponisation of anti-Semitism. He also discusses the crackdown on academic freedom in the UK surrounding the Gaza genocide, whether he would choose Mandela’s or Gandhi’s approach if he were a Palestinian teenager in Gaza and much more.
