Uri Avnery – “1948: A Soldier’s Tale” (57/315)

Uri Avnery – “1948: A Soldier’s Tale” (57/315)

Throughout the war… I wrote dozens and dozens of articles for ‘Day-to-Day’ the evening newspaper of ‘Haaretz’ about the battles, the action, about existence. Later after the war, I collected them in a book called ‘1948: A Soldier’s Tale – the Bloody Road to Jerusalem’ which became the biggest bestseller of the time. I think that today, per capita, it remains the number one bestseller [in Israel]. But every now and then I wrote not about our existence and not…

Uri Avnery – One-nation state (31/315)

I forgot to mention that after I left Etzel increasingly I began to feel that I belong to the left. I published my first pamphlet to appear in print when I was 19 or so. It was called ‘Terrorism – the Infantile Disease of the Hebrew Revolution’, in which I bluntly attacked the very idea that it is possible to free the country by means of terror. I said it was outdated that it stems from 19th century Europe and…

Industrial AI Robots & VR factory at Hannover Messe (Wide Nation Inc. Ep. 4.)

Hello and welcome everyone! (I can only suggest that it’s my introduction, since it’s a footage from a show in Kosovo that I don’t understand) And it’s been a long time since I haven’t made a video that I also talk in. But luckily the Transpack magazine sent me to Hannover in January to the preview event of Hannover Messe. I’ll get to it later, what’s that about, but if you want to get deeper in it, there will be…

Steve Kornacki Explains What Formed Modern National Partisan Politics

-You heard you might have some competition in the podcast world. It was reported that someone overheard Rudy Giuliani at a restaurant — this is real — saying that he might do his own impeachment podcast.

Chris Hedges Delivers the Ultimate Trump Takedown

Chris Hedges Delivers the Ultimate Trump Takedown

I usually don’t pay attention to colonial politics but there’s very outrageous things taking place. When people come to our territories, we ask them if they’re coming with a good heart and a good mind. The song I sang coming up the aisle is one of our paddle songs. It comes from a relative of ours named Rose Green from the Stolo Nation. So we would get in our canoes and go out and greet who was coming in. And…

Vox Borders: Life at the edge of nations

My name is Johnny Harris and I make videos here at Vox. For the past six months, I’ve been traveling around to faraway places, to tell the story of borders.

Uri Avnery – Divide and rule (297/315)

Uri Avnery – Divide and rule (297/315)

[Q] You mention here a meeting in Jerusalem. Yes, at the home of the Hamas leader Mohammed Abu Tir. At some point war actually broke out between Israel and Hamas. Relations between Israel and Hamas are very complex. Hamas, I think, was officially born with the First Intifada. Before that there had been an Islamist movement without a name. And there was a relationship between the religious community in the West Bank I would not say it was friendly, but…

Uri Avnery – A British licence to publish a newspaper (30/315)

Uri Avnery – A British licence to publish a newspaper (30/315)

The Commission of Inquiry came to Israel to decide what to do with Palestine – the Land of Israel. At the time I was already publishing ‘In the Struggle’. ‘In the Struggle’ did not appear regularly nor was it constant. Why not regularly? Because there was a law during the period of the British Mandate which stated that to publish a newspaper you had to have a British license. But if you published one-off issues, you did not need a…

HEFFNER: I’m Alexander Hefner, your host on The Open Mind, one of the leading chroniclers of the modern age fascist and anti-fascist movements is our guest today, senior writer for Mic, Jack Smith IV has resonated as a most audacious truth-telling journalist when the status quo of reporting is to magnify the sensational, on the one hand or to normalize extremism.
