On today’s show, Eetta discussed growing violence in Israel and the reasons behind it. Simplistic answers, from the right and the left, she argued, just aren’t enough to lead society to find a solution. Eetta also condemned the chauvinistic, patronistic and violent rhetoric of groups like Lahava, which seek to “protect Jewish women from “Arab men.”
In today’s interviews, Eetta interviewed Miri Maoz-Ovadia, a spokeswoman for the settler movement, and Lior Amichai, from Peace Now, about the longer-term implications of the evacuation of Migron. Finally, In an extensive and moving interview, Cindy Corrie, mother of pro-Palestinian International Solidarity Movement activist Rachel Corrie who was killed when she run over by an IDF bulldozer in the Gaza Strip in 2003, spoke about refusing to allow her daughter’s death to be used by either side and her hopes for a better future for all the children in the region.
And in-between – good music for the beginning of a new week.
