First aired on Friday 3rd November 2023 on AL Mayadeen network
Note: This is the format we adopted following the Covid-19 pandemic. It is not clear when we might go back to the format with the audience present in the studio.
Are there indications of a shift in public opinion in Western countries towards Palestine?
“A plainly” Israel’s actions are illegal under international law the Geneva Conventions, the rules of War established at the Nuremberg tribunals at the end of the Second World War, and so on; why do Western governments simply ignore such fundamental points?
