Title:Israel & Palestine | The War Against Hamas | Peter Hitchens

In this conversation, John sits down with journalist and author Peter Hitchens to discuss the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas. This conversation was filmed on the 26th of October. While Hitchens labels himself as 'pro-Israel' he argues against their current course of action as both politically and militarily disastrous. He also contends that being anti-Zionist does not equate to being anti-Semitic. Moreover, Hitchens is a self-proclaimed 'free speech absolutist' which he discusses in the context of anti-Semitic speech and the ongoing political challenges facing Britain. Hitchens currently writes for The Mail on Sunday and has contributed to numerous other newspaper outlets. He has published various books, including The Abolition of Britain, The Rage Against God, The War We Never Fought, The Phoney Victory, and his most recent book, A Revolution Betrayed: How Egalitarians Wrecked the British Education System. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 00:00 Intro 00:27 Introducing Peter Hitchens 00:58 Why a two-state solution wouldn't work 4:55 Why do some Palestinians support Hamas? 7:04 'It is absurd to think you can get rid of Hamas' 9:00 'You can't destroy an idea using physical force' 12:01 Does being anti-Israel equal anti-Semitic? 13:32 The unashamed anti-Semites 16:06 Why freedom of speech matters 19:06 Israel's survival depends on the West 22:00 What happens next in the Middle East? 24:55 What if Iran becomes a nuclear power? 26:42 You can support Israel and still criticise them 30:00 The world is in a state of 'permacrisis' 33:20 The infamous 'Rivers of Blood' speech 35:45 Extremism breeds extremism 37:25 The problem of immigration in the UK 38:50 France's migrant problem 41:30 'There is nothing to hope for' 46:50 The West is in a worse position than before WW2 48:28 'The New World' -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Conversations feature John Anderson, former Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, interviewing the world's foremost thought leaders about today's pressing social, cultural and political issues.
