January 7th 2022

As Israel enters its 74th year of occupying Palestine, labeling all its critics as antisemitic, world public opinion is finally changing. But is it shifting fast enough for those being pushed off their land? What is the relationship between, and relative importance of, Western public opinion in connection with regional resistance? How should we deal with the new brand of political leaders who claim solidarity with Palestinians while campaigning but then disappoint when in office? Also, is a multipolar world good for Palestine and what does 2022 have in store for the Middle East? To discuss this Rania Khalek was joined by Ali Abunimah, director of The Electronic Intifada and author of the Battle for Justice In Palestine.
