New book compares US justice system to West Bank occupation

As concern deepens about the viability of a negotiated two-state solution between Israelis and Palestinians, scholar and activist Ali Abunimah asks probing and provocative questions in his new book, The Battle for Justice in Palestine. In the book, Abunimah asks pointed questions like: “Does Israel have a right to exist as a Jewish state?” Would Israeli Jews ever accept a single democratic state in which their colonial and ethno-religious privileges are removed?” Abunimah says his book also looks at “the ideological affinities and cooperation between U.S. big city police forces and America’s system of mass incarceration targeting people of color, on the one hand, and Israel’s occupation and apartheid, on the other.” Abunimah will tell us what he thinks are the obstacles to a viable peace.
