For the second time this year, the United States has voted to give Israel billions of dollars in military funding; $3.8 billion in July, followed by an additional $1 billion in September to replenish its Iron Dome.
On both occasions, progressives and members of the The Squad such as Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Presley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, either voted in favor of funding Israel, or refused to take a concrete stance against it. So, do these self-styled progressives actually support the Palestinian cause?
Or just offering lip service and trying to protect their careers and political ambitions? We also take a look at the African Union. How is Israel involved? Why was it granted Observer status, and what is it trying to achieve? A team comprised of international lawyers have lodged a complaint at the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights. I speak to one of the lawyers leading the effort to revoke Israels Observer status, Stanley Cohen, who says that Israel hasnt earned an African welcome.
