‘What Israel uses against Palestinians today will be used against the world tomorrow’ – UN Rapporteur (E1037)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Michael Lynk, the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territories. He discusses the postponement of the Palestinian elections and the difficulty of holding them at all under Israeli occupation, how Israel’s illegal settlements are the engine for the occupation, the war crimes committed by Israel in the recent 11-day bombing of Gaza, the NSO Group’s Pegasus project leaks, and more.

Next, we speak to Arsalan Iftikhar, author of ‘Fear of a Muslim Planet: Global Islamophobia in the New World Order’. He discusses the rise of right-wing ethno-nationalism from Trump to Orban to Le Pen, the causes of Islamophobia in the southern United States and elsewhere, the misperception of Islam as monolithic rather than different from nation to nation, and why Islamophobia isn’t only a Western problem.
