Continuing the exploration of a critical aspect of the Israel-Palestine conflict, this week’s podcast builds on previous episodes’ information of systematic, racially motivated forced displacement of Palestinians through legal means. Rather than looking at one family’s case, this episode discusses a village whose entire existence is one big court battle.
I speak with Robin Levy, a writer, poet and active community member in Jerusalem. After explaining the background on the legal struggle over the village of Susiya, Robin and I talk about the dynamic of historical sites and settlements as they play into state-occupation, and about why activists do what they do specifically in relation to Susiya.
Rabbis for Human Rights has an easy-to-watch animated educational video that I highly recommend watching before listening to this podcast.
