Dr. Zunes’ Letter from Sweden

Posted on February 9, 2024:
Greetings from Sweden, where I am serving this semester as the Torgny Segerstedt Visiting Research Professor at the University of Gothenburg.

My latest article, written for The Progressive magazine, looks at U.S. opposition to the International Court of Justice reviewing evidence of Israeli violations of the Genocide Convention in light of the history of U.S. opposition to the World Court and the broader application of international law:
Will the United States Again Look the Other Way When the World Court Rules?

And here is an op-ed piece I wrote for the Santa Cruz Sentinel about the dangerous foreign policy views of Rep. Adam Schiff, who is running against two progressive Congresswomen for the open U.S. Senate seat in California. Please consider sharing it with any California voters you know. (If you hit a paywall, send me an email and I’ll cut & paste and send it to you directly.)

Biden Has Defended U.S. Allies’ Use of Lethal Force Against Civilians
Democratic Platform Condemns BDS But Not Israel’s Occupation

This is a lecture I gave last week Santa Cruz–one of my best and most comprehensive–which examines the U.S. role in Israel/Palestine, both historically and in the present, and what we can learn from it:

And here is a video of a discussion I had with Silvia Morales, director of the Resource Center for Nonviolence about Israel, Palestine, U.S. policy, and the role of peace and human rights activists: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62hGlmJkb7Y
