After much hype here is the first offering by Julian Assange from his new interview series on RT “The World Tomorrow”. Still under house arrest in the UK for alleged Swedish indiscretions, Julian promises to interview some controversial figures. I was impressed by his first attempt, although his awkwardness is still rather funny.
“The state of Israel is an illegal state, it was a state that is based on occupying the lands of others…” Hassan Nasrallah
I wonder how long till Offcom bans RT like they did PressTV?
Are you ready? What is your vision for the future of Israel and Palestine? What would Hezbollah consider victory? And if you had that victory , would you disarm?
The state of Israel is not a… is an illegal state, it’s a state that was established on the basis of occupying the lands of others, or usurping the lands of others, of controlling by force the lands of others, of committing massacres against the Palestinians who were expelled, and these include Muslims and Christians too, so for this reason justice is… justice remains… remains on the side where even if ten years passes the progress of time does not turn justice into… does not negate justice. If it’s my house…if your house… and I go and occupy it by force it doesn’t become mine in 50 or 100 years just because I’m stronger than you and I’ve been able to occupy your house, that doesn’t give me… that doesn’t legalise my ownership of your house. At least, this is our ideological view and our legal view and we believe that Palestine belongs to the Palestinian people. But if we wanted to combine ideology and law, and political realities, and relate it on the ground, we should say that the only solution is we don’t want to kill anyone, we don’t want to treat anyone unjustly, we want justice to be restored to the… and the only solution is the establishment of one state – one state on the land on Palestine in which the Muslims and the Jews and the Christians live in peace in a democratic state. Any other solution will simply not be viable, and it won’t be sustained.
