Real News Network Interviews Phyllis Bennis

Real News Network, March 21 2009 - Phyllis Bennis, a Fellow at Institute for Policy Studies and the Transnational Institute, writes widely about the Middle East. Her books include Understanding the Israel-Palestine Conflict: A Primer and Understanding the US-Iran crisis: a Primer. In 2001, she helped found and currently co-chairs the U.S. Campaign to End Israeli Occupation.

In the interview, she discusses the changing discourse about Israel in the wake of the Gaza War, particularly the significance of the events of the past week in Israel (with the soldiers' testimonies) and in Washington DC (with the furor over the nomination of Charles Freeman).
