The Palestinians: Blaming the Victims
Program #SAIE-HITC001. Recorded in Berkeley, CA on February 06, 1988.
A great encounter with two of this era's most interesting figures. Hitchens declares, "As the taxpayers of the paymaster state for the occupation we have to commit and engage and to be free of the moral blackmail that is often the answer to those who criticize Israel and its doings." Said tells a great New York taxi cab story and then lights into the pliant media. He singles out Thomas Friedman's "reams of boring prose." Said asks, "Why should we, the Palestinians, the victims of the victims, be denied what the victims have?" Moderated by none other than Alexander Cockburn.
