A conversation with
Donald J. McLachlan Professor of History and
Professor of Middle East History, Emeritus, Stanford University
“After keeping Gaza’s residents on the precipice of a humanitarian disaster for nearly two decades, Israel has decided to drop them into the deepest possible abyss. Amid the understandable public atmosphere of outrage, nausea, and disgust following the unprecedented, horrifying massacre and kidnappings of Israelis (as well as foreign citizens), the Israeli government ordered the electricity and water it sells to the besieged strip to be shut off, and is preventing any supplies from entering the enclave. Nothing is going in or out of Gaza via the Israeli crossings — not people, not goods, and not emergency supplies.” ~ Amir Rotem, +972 Magazine
