Gaza in Crisis: Reflections on Israel's War Against the Palestinians - Noam Chomsky, Ilan Pappé, Frank Barat

- “Why has this ‘conflict’ lasted for so long, who can stop it, and how?”


- Ignorance, the people, and by popular resistance and a refusal to remain silent were the first answers that came to mind. I sincerely believe that what is happening in Palestine would never have lasted this long if the public were properly informed about what had been really taking place in this part of the Middle East. 

Frank Barat, London, July 2010. On the ghettoization of Palestine and the crimes of Israel and the US.
