 Takes on the World 
 Host: Jeff Blankfort
 Jeff Blankfort  
Blankfort recalls Israeli attack and USS Liberty on June 8, 1967 and treason of LBJ in recalling US jets sent to defend it as one the important anniversaries being observed in May and June and explains WHY Israel did it. He points out that in allowing Israelis to murder US sailors with impunity it set the tone for the Israel-US relationship ever since.

He then speaks of Israel's declaration of statehood, May 15 1948, a month and a week after the massacre of Deir Yassin by Menachem Begin's Irgun, the Stern Gang and Haganah and importance of that for the Israeli plan to ethnically cleanse Palestine and why that date has become The Nakba.

He moves from there to Israel's invasion of Lebanon on June 6, 1982, describing its murder of 18,000 Lebanese and Palestinian civilians before its seven week long siege of Beirut that ended with Palestinian fighters being permitted safe passage for Tunisia, leaving the refugee camps undefended.

He then describes how Ariel Sharon broke his promise to protect the camps by allowing Christian Falangist killers into Sabra and Shatila refugee camps where they murdered at least 2000 civilians with the assistance of the Israeli army.

He moves from there to Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia and Israel, commenting on Trump’s speech in Riyadh and citing Robert Fisk's reaction to it, concluding with Fisk's observation that Israel has attacked everyone in Syria but ISIS.
