‘ON THE GROUND’ SHOW FOR FEBRUARY 17, 2022 – The F-Word: World Renown Palestinian Activist Issa Amro Speaks on Israel as a Fascist State 

For this episode of “The F-Word,” we hear from world renown Palestinian activist Issa Amro, awarded by the United Nations for his non-violent resistance to the Israeli government, which he says is an openly fascist regime. He spoke recently at Plymouth Congregational United Church of Christ in Northeast DC and was introduced by the Israeli American author and activist Miko Peled. With more than 50 Palestinians, including 11 children, killed by Israeli soldiers this year, and violent attacks on communities by Jewish settlers rubber-stamped by the Netanyahu far-right government, activists say that it is urgent to organize the type of international Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement that was mounted against the apartheid government of South Africa.
