Amira Hass, descendant of Holocaust survivors, author and journalist with Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz speaks to Democracy Now on the current situation; she discusses the context, the dangers facing everyone in the area, the increasing likelihood of expulsion. In the first, broadcast on 19th October, she has come from the demonstration at the US Capital Building in Washington and is close to tears. In the second, longer interview broadcast on 20th, she is more analytical. Highly critical of Israel, she also asks whether Hamas has realistic goals and political aim. But her ire is focused mainly on the disproprotionate response to the ghastly Hamas attack and to the atrocities Israel has carried out in Gaza and the West Bank over many decades.
