Peering into the Future of a People (Interview with Arthur Goodman)

haneulnaavi:

We analyze the future of Israeli politics with Arthur Goodman, the Parliamentary and Diplomatic Liaison for Jews for Justice for Palestinians, Europe’s largest Jewish voice against Zionism. We cover his history with the organization, explicate the process of the recent Knesset elections, and express our knowledge and understanding of the situation happening in Palestine, as well as the international community’s shift in support from Benjamin Netanyahu as he engages in further dangerous hardline rhetoric and crimes against humanity.

HANEUL: Can you tell us a little information about yourself?

ARTHUR: I’ve been handling lobbying for JFJFP ever
since it was formed; about 13 years ago. I grew up in a middle-class Jewish family and used to be 100% supportive of Israel. I had always assumed that everything Israel was right and Arabs wrong, without much thought behind it, until my mid-50s. One day, towards the end of the first Intifada, I looked at a newspaper with a picture of Palestinian teenagers throwing stones at Israeli soldiers across barren wasteland. I thought, “It takes guts to throw stones at armed soldiers”. That never occurred any time before, but it shows how your psychological preconceptions can color how you look at things.

A Letter to Ferguson

Another Black man has been shot dead by the police in the US; this time in St. Louis, MO. Armed with a sandwich, officers shot the suspect 16 times as he threatened to satisfy his hunger on the sidewalk of his neighborhood, which is apparently a crime punishable by death according to state legislature.

People from around America have streamed into MO for another round of protests in this latest example of absurd racial injustice. Michael Brown and now, Vonderrit D. Myers have placed MO on the map, and are merely two characters in a theatre where the curtains never close.

My deepest concern for this is the lack of context that Blacks have given themselves in the greater political ecosystem that is America. I call upon them to show reasonable understanding of their current crisis before engaging in yet another skirmish between the overly equipped and poorly misguided forces of America’s police state.

I must be honest. Black people: you are seeds sown in a barren political wasteland. Your soil is poison, your climate is harsh, and your situation will never improve until you grow roots upon fertile ground. You are not in your natural habitat.

Firstly, the people that you protest against KNOW what they’re doing…
