On this week’s episode of Unauthorized Disclosure Kevin Gosztola and I spend the entire hour speaking with Max Blumenthal, author of Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel, about his visit to Gaza during Israel’s summertime assault, the out-of-control genocidal racism within Israel and the rising fanaticism of Zionist ideologues in the United States. (Download the episode here or subscribe for free on iTunes here).
As always, Kevin’s got the details:
At New York City’s Lincoln Center, the Metropolitan Opera staged the opening performance of “The Death of Klinghoffer.” It is based on the story of Palestinian militants who hijacked a ship and demanded the release of 50 Palestinian prisoners from Israeli jails in 1985. Initially, their demands were not met so the Palestinians threw a 69-year-old American Jew in a wheelchair, Leon Klinghoffer, overboard. They eventually managed to negotiate safe passage in return for the release of passengers aboard the ship.
