After watching the video interview I did with Palestinian Initiative leader and former Palestinian Authority presidential candidate Mustafa Barghouti on Obama’s “World Without Walls” speech, former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski wrote me a note.
that discussion with [Barghouti] is humiliating for any decent American who values human rights….
I am posting Dr. Brzezinski’s note with his permission — and also reposting the video.
More people should see this film clip that I hope animates those around Barack Obama (and John McCain) to realize that the walls that need our attention today are not the ones in our past — but in our present. And they divide Israelis and Palestinians in what is becoming an “Apartheid situation” — to quote Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Ohlmert.
