Gideon Levy, an outspoken Israeli journalist, spoke in Dundee on Monday 16 August as part of a Scottish speaking tour organised by a pro-Palestine group.

In this video he talks about Israel’s abandonment of the pretense of diplomacy in favor of a policy of provocation and raw military power, with the ultimate aim of denying Palestinians any chance of forming their own independent state.

His latest book is entitled The Punishment of Gaza, and is published by Verso.

This video was recorded by me during the talk at the request of the event organisers, the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
