Scott Horton Interviews Roi Maor
Roi Maor, blogger at 972mag.com, discusses his article “Preeminent Israelis to support Palestinian state, 1967 borders;” the wearing-thin pretend negotiations and “peace talks” that Israel has no interest in; the US and Israel fighting against world opinion on a Palestinian state; the forty four years of occupation and encroaching settlements since the 1967 War; Palestinians who are subject to Israeli government rule yet lack the ability to democratically participate in that government; and the slow ethnic cleansing in East Jerusalem – through denied building permits.
