Livestream roundtable: Regional resistance to genocide

On day 110 of Israel’s genocide in Gaza, journalist and publisher Helena Cobban talks about regional and geopolitical aspects of Israel’s US-backed genocide in Gaza.

Helena is a veteran international affairs analyst and a former longtime columnist for The Christian Science Monitor and Al-Hayat.

She is currently the president of Just World Educational, and publisher of its newsletter, Globalities. Helena also hosts PalCast, a podcast with Yousef Aljamal, a longtime friend and contributor to The Electronic Intifada.

As a publisher, Helena worked closely with Refaat Alareer, the inspirational educator and writer murdered by Israel in Gaza on 6 December.

Together they published the books Gaza Writes Back and Gaza Unsilenced.

New evidence continues to emerge about how Israel killed many of its own people on 7 October. Asa Winstanley told us about the latest revelation that the order to apply the Hannibal Directive that day came from the very top of Israel’s military command, approving the targeting of their own people to prevent their capture.

Meanwhile, The Washington Post has published a hit piece against The Electronic Intifada, falsely accusing us of spreading conspiracy theories about the events of 7 October.

Ali Abunimah responded to the lies and distortions and explored the motivations for the article written by the Post’s Elizabeth Dwoskin.

I was livid when I read the article on Washington Post accusing of lying and were trying to discredit you by calling you conspiracy theorists. Please send me a link of your response


Every single day, I am humbled by the enormous sacrifice and bravery of the Palestinian resistance. The Buddha's blessings for them.
