Podcast: Busting the myth of Israeli ‘democracy’

February 6, 2024

Israel claims to be the only democracy in the Middle East. The reality is different. Israeli democracy is based on Zionist indoctrination; racist citizenship laws; and a supremacist "Jewish" state in which Palestinians are treated as second class.

This episode features talks given at a Naarm/Melbourne forum hosted by Green Left on January 30 by Nachshon Amir, anti-zionist Jewish activist and former Israeli Defense Forces soldier, Palestinian activist Mai Saif and Meredith Lawrence, member of Socialist Alliance and the Loud Jew Collective.
