The Underground Episode 2: Israel and Palestine

In this episode we have a conversation about the conflict in Israel and Palestine. Nesim begins the episode by providing some history of Israel and the Middle East, and then we discuss the events of May 2021 and share our thoughts on elements of the conflict such as antisemitism, the question of whether Israel is an apartheid state, and the role of U.S. imperial policy in the region.
