The Progressive Radio News Hour Guests for November 23, 24, and 25, 2012

Friday, November 23 at 10AM US Central Times: Michael Mandel

Mandel is a Professor of Law at Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, Toronto, Ontario. He teaches international criminal law, constitutional law, and legal politics.

Mandel is the author of “How America Gets Away with Murder: Illegal Wars, Collateral Damage and Crimes Against Humanity.”

Israel’s naked aggression on Gaza will be discussed. On America’s Thanksgiving weekend, besieged Gazans have no reason to celebrate.

They’re isolated on their own. Israel persecutes them ruthlessly. Operation Pillar of Cloud attacked innocent men, women, children, infants and the elderly for days. Slaughter and destruction followed.

Major crimes of war and against humanity were committed.

Conflict was planned months ago. Washington approved it. Multiple Israeli provocations launched it. An alleged ceasefire is meaningless. Israel will attack again at will.
