Occupation of Palestine: Al-Aqsa Mosque invaded by Israeli forces, Israel strikes Gaza (E1009)
On this episode of Going Underground, we firstly speak to Dr. Mustafa Barghouti, founder and leader of the Palestinian National Initiative. He discusses the attempt by Israel to displace Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah with Israeli settlers, the invasion of Al-Aqsa Mosque by Israeli forces in which Palestinians were shot with rubber steel-coated bullets, Israeli airstrikes on Gaza, Britain and the United States’ responsibility for the suffering of Palestinians, and much more! Finally, we speak to Steve Howell, former adviser to former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. He too discusses the Israeli occupation and violence targeting occupied Palestine, his new book ‘Collateral Damage’, Sir Keir Starmer’s disaster in recent elections, why the Labour Party lost a traditionally socialist stronghold in Hartlepool, US regime change in the Middle East and its origins in the 1986 bombing of Libya, and much more.
