TV: Pro-Palestinian protesters who blocked Bay Area highways, bridges & Israel vs. Iran

KTVU-TV Fox, April 15, 2024: From Oakland television station KTVU this past Monday, in which I discuss pro-Palestinian protesters who blocked Bay Area highways and bridges as well as Israel’s confrontation with Iran. (I come in at about the one-minute mark.) “Over the weekend, Iran launched drone and missile attacks in response to a suspected Israeli strike that killed two Iranian generals in Syria two weeks ago. The Israeli military says it was able to intercept 99% of the missiles, but it will respond quote “at the time that we choose”.

Interview: A Beacon of Hope in Troubled Times; Stephen Zunes

Resource Center for Nonviolence, January 11, 2024; 25 min. on YouTube.

In an era marked by escalating tensions and complex geopolitical dynamics, the Resource Center for Nonviolence (RCNV) remains steadfast in its mission to foster peace and justice through understanding. Upholding the philosophy of nonviolence and the values of Martin Luther King Jr.’s Beloved Community, RCNV is hosting a pivotal event, “Shadows of War: Decoding U.S. Role in the Israel-Palestinian Conflict,” featuring the esteemed Professor Stephen Zunes, a leading authority on Middle Eastern politics and U.S. foreign policy.
During an insightful conversation with RCNV’s Executive Director, Silvia Morales, Professor Zunes shared his nuanced understanding of the Israel-Palestine conflict and its alignment with RCNV’s principles of nonviolence and justice. Reflecting on the Jewish community’s involvement in RCNV and their connection to Israel, Zunes observed, “Jews have played a disproportionate role in RCNV leadership and activism. Jews feel an attachment to the state, often rationalizing war crimes committed by Israel.” His perspective resonates with RCNV’s long-standing approach to international conflicts, emphasizing human rights and international law over ideological debates.
