Phyllis Bennis, fellow at the Institute for Policy Studies in Washington and the Trans National Institute in Amsterdam. A lecture on The USA and the Middle East.
Phyllis Bennis, author of 'Before and After. US Foreign Policy and the September 11th Crisis' gave on 10 september 2006 in Amsterdam a lecture on Israel, the USA and the failed war in Lebanon. 'It failed to do what it was supposed to do,' being the annihilation of Hezbollah. At the same time Israel lost a lot of support under ordinary Americans because of the terror the jewish nation inflicted on the Lebanese population, a fact which was broadcasted life in the USA. The usual pro-Israel propaganda didn't work this time, according to Bennis.
After the lecture Phyllis Bennis answered questions. The next morning I interviewed her shortly.
