Day 124 roundtable: Will the genocide end?

On day 124 of Israel’s genocide in Gaza, Israeli forces have failed to reach any discernible military goals in four months of relentless destruction, starvation and slaughter of civilians.

They are now threatening a major attack on Rafah, the southern city bordering Egypt where an estimated 1.7 million Palestinians are trying to shelter.

As US Secretary of State Antony Blinken tours the region, his house near Washington, DC, continues to be the site of 24-hour protests against his direct complicity in and support for Israel’s genocide.

Blinken and his family hear the protests night and day and see them whenever they leave home.

We spoke to Hazami Barmada, the activist and social entrepreneur who is leading the protests outside Blinken’s home.

And I gave a brief update of news from Gaza, covering stories by Maureen Clare Murphy on the worsening humanitarian situation and the funding freeze of UNRWA by western states; Michael F. Brown’s analysis of UNRWA funding freezes as complicity in genocide; and a feature by Sondos Alfayoumi in Gaza about her sister under siege in al-Amal hospital.
