The Israeli Society and The Occupation


Gideon Levy speaks about the 45-year Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, how it effects life in Israel and the ways it has been justified. How can such a brutal occupation last in a democracy for so many years, and why has it not faced greater moral questioning?

Gideon Levy is an Israeli journalist writing for Haaretz. He was given the Emil Grunzweig Human Rights Award by the Association for Civil Rights in Israel, the Anna Lindh Foundation Journalism Award for an article about Palestinian children killed by Israeli forces, and the Peace Through Media Award. He is the author of Twilight Zone: Life and Death Under the Israeli Occupation, and appears periodically on television.
