When People are Occupied, Is Resistance Justified?

Four days into the genocidal bombing and siege of Gaza, with a massive ground invasion pending, the West’s most prominent left-liberal intellectuals stood up and spoke out against … the leftists on the streets for Palestine.

Ben Becker, Editor-in-Chief of BreakThrough News, discusses the remarkable transformation of the US political environment in response to the global movement for Palestine.
