    Excellent, informative, real, truthful and a damning indictment of Israel, its supporters in the west. Deconstructs the hasbara narrative and lays bare the endemic racism within Israel and the culture of Jewish exceptionalism underpinning this

  2. Bev Lloyd says:

    Informative and truthful which helps deconstruct the narrative surrounding the Israeli -Palestine situation in terms of the language used to describe it and thereby exposes the underlying racism that helps to sustain it.
