Description

Policing in America is under intense scrutiny in the wake of continuing demonstrations and non-violent displays of rage over the shooting of unarmed Black people. The restructuring of policing and our understanding of safety and security are at the heart of that scrutiny. The militarized, discriminatory practice of policing which is geared to control society has not and will not provide security and safety for everyone in that society.

How did we get to this warped concept of security and safety, and whom does it serve? We know whom it does not serve and we must find a way forward to create a just, safe, secure society for everyone.

Who is fueling this militarized, discriminatory policing of America? Jeff Halper has meticulously researched the issue, and in particular the role Israel is playing in arming the security state. His book, War Against the People, is a must read and serves as the basis for an article he recently wrote on the intersection of policing in America and Israel. We lead this morning with the reading of Halper’s recent article we found in Mondoweiss.

After this, our feature presentation which today is a conversation between British journalist Steven Sacker and Hamas spokesman Ghazi Hamad, who speaks from Gaza. The conversation was recorded in March and takes place on Sacker’s podcast, "Hardtalk." Sacker continually reveals his all-too-common ignorance about Hamas, Palestine, the Great March, etc.
