Arab Perspectives: Operation Pillar of Defense (part 1)Posted: December 5, 2012
In this video, that I originally filmed for Feenjan (please see below for more info), in Arabic (with English subtitles) I talk about the way Arabs view Israel’s motivation to launch Operation Pillar of Defense.
In this video I discuss the real reason that motivated Israel to launch the operation that was not mentioned in the any analysis made by Arab writers, commentators or politicians and what can we learn from that. Along with the different Arab reasons I present (some of which by the way are quite groundless…) I also share with you a most exceptional and rare perspective of a Kuwaiti columnist.
I am not sure how many of you are familiar with my initiative Feenjan. Feenjan – Israel speaks Arabic is a non-profit initiative which I founded and support that presents contemporary Israeli society and culture to the Arab world in Arabic, and serves as an on-line platform for Israelis and Arabs to discover and discuss issues of common interest.
