The Intervention
Palestine, Zionism, and Empire Article Series: Judeo-Nazis and "Liberal" Tears
Show Notes

We take a minute to work through two articles in depth which speak to structural rot at the basis of the Israeli liberal establishment. The first by Jonathan Ofir argues the depravity at the basis of the genocide of Palestinians is proof of a state death cult. The second, by Nir Hasson & Liza Rozovsky represents the decadence of the liberal position as it condemns the "excesses" of individual actors to justify the actions of state. In both, the genocidal logic of Zionism is laid bare but while one comes to grip with the ideology at its base the other makes excuse after excuse. Love me, I'm a liberal.
