Palestine: It’s Time to Tell the Truth
Program #LUBB001. Recorded in Boulder, CO on November 27, 2000.
Barbara Lubin addresses the ongoing Palestine-Israel issue. She talks about the origins of the conflict going back to the 1917 Balfour Declaration. She discusses the Holocaust and the guilt felt by Europe and the U.S. She says, “The European Christian community was looking for a way to deal with the ‘Jewish problem.’” The focus was on Palestine under British control. For Jews to go to Palestine and to throw people off their land and forced them to leave “is
outrageous.” Israel ignores UN resolutions. Many Jewish-only settlements have been built on occupied Palestinian land. Today, many of the “most rabid settlers come from the U.S., from Brooklyn.” She describes her personal odyssey from unquestioning Zionist to critic. She pleads. “It’s time to tell the truth.”
