Antony Loewenstein On His Book, ‘Palestine Laboratory: How Israel Exports Technology Of Occupation’
Journalist and author Antony Loewenstein joins the “Unauthorized Disclosure” podcast to discuss his new book, The Palestine Laboratory: How Israel Exports Exports the Technology of Occupation Around the World.
The book from Verso Books will be published on May 23, and it comprehensively documents how Israel’s military industrial complex uses the occupied Palestinian territories as a testing ground for the development of weapons and surveillance technology.
In our interview, Antony describes the impact Israeli military support and weapons have had on populations in Latin America, Africa, and Asia. He specifically highlights the alliance Colombia formed with the Israeli military in a brutal war against the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia or the FARC.
Social media companies, as Antony details, do not like Palestinians. He tells us about some of the ways in which Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, etc, censor Palestinians.
