Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: the Heretics Speak Truth to PowerSubmitted by yadranko on Wed, 07/23/2014 - 18:18
In my pre-libertarian years, I have to admit that despite my complete ignorance about the issue of violence in the land of Palestine, back then I still would have not hesitated to give my opinion about it if asked. It was as if I somehow knew with confidence what was going on in Palestine and who the good and the bad guys were. I guess it was my subconscious memory at work, the information that was fed to me by the Western media over many years without me even asking for it and without ever giving it a second thought. It was like second nature, things that I had heard accidentally over and over for so many times have become the truth. Perhaps this is a solid example and a proof that media propaganda can be so effective, whether we are paying attention to it or not?
Having been inspired by the Ron Paul Revolution over the years, I have encountered the issue of Palestine on many occasions and it naturally became a part of my long libertarian educational journey. There is a wealth of information and disinformation about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict online. Much of it is pure propaganda from both sides. However, I have found that the best and most truthful sources come from whistle-blowers and other individuals and groups who at some point had a change of heart, or are just going against the prescribed conventional wisdom prescribed by their national leaders.
My main intent with this post is to share some of the sources that I have come to trust when it comes to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. I hope that everyone will give them a chance and find out what these people have to say, and then, combined with the usual everyday propaganda on this issue, decide for yourself what to believe.
