Arab Perspectives on Operation Pillar of Defense (part 2)

In Part 1 of this 2 Part Series that I originally filmed for Feenjan (please see below for more info), in Arabic (with English subtitles) I talked about the way Arabs view Israel’s motivation to launch Operation Pillar of Defense.

In this video (part 2) I present you different questions some in the Arab world are beginning to ask regarding the Palestinian narrative and Radical Islamic perspective on victory, real achievements and “The Resistance*.”

*The Resistance, in Arabic al-muqawama, is an all-encompassing philosophy. For more information on al-muqawama click here.

Below are some articles I’ve written on the subject :

Is War in the Middle East Inevitable?

Inside Hezbollah’s Private Dominion

Making Friends with a Scorpion: the Murder of the Italian Peace Activist in the Gaza Strip

Other articles I’ve written on the subject can be found on my blog by searching “Resistance”

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.
