Israel lives off US umbilical cord, Biden could enforce a Gaza ceasefire immediately – Said Arikat

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Said Arikat, the Washington Bureau Chief of Al-Quds Newspaper. He discusses what it’s like challenging the State Department spokesperson Mathew Miller in exchanges that have become viral, the complicity of the United States in the Israeli slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza, and the sympathy of US officials for Israel compared with the dismissive attitude to Palestinian suffering and reports of Israeli atrocities. He also discusses opposition to the US role in the Gaza genocide across the State Department and across federal agencies, why Gaza is likely to be a big issue in the 2024 election as Biden has earned the nickname ‘Genocide Joe’, Aaron Bushnell’s self-immolation, and the reaction of US officials and media. Plus, the US being an aggressive nation and its violent foreign policy, the proxy war in Ukraine, and CIA operations in Ukraine before 2022.
