Our feature presentation today is a talk given this past week at the JFK School of government by Palestinian Attorney Diana Buttu. She is introduced by Prof. Hillary Rantisi, and speaks on the topic of the One State Solution in the Trump era. Buttu observes that all the players are slowly headed toward a one state solution, with our know-nothing war-loving president claiming that whatever solution the players agree on is fine with him.
But before that, we begin by reading a statement by Richard Falk, writing in response to the UN's cowardly withdrawal of the official report he wrote with Virginia Tilley investigating Israel’s crime of apartheid. This critical report was attacked by the dynamic duo of Israel and the United States, and these bullies were successful in getting it thrown out. The executive secretary of the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, which authorized the report, Rima Khalaf, resigned in protest of this outrageous, cowardly act of the United Nations. Richard Falk, former professor of International Law at Princeton University, served for 6 years as United Nations Human Rights Council’s Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in Palestine.
