Whither the Israel Lobby?
Ever since his 1970 assignment to photograph Palestinian refugee camps, Jeffrey Blankfort has been a committed anti-Zionist. Jeff is less well known than he should be, though he frequently publishes in the alternative media and has a regular, weekly program on KZYX radio in Mendocino, California. He maintains a rare intellectual consistency, being unafraid to put rational argument above political loyalties (so, for example, regarding approaches toward the Israel Lobby he praises President George H.W. Bush but condemns Noam Chomsky). It was a pleasure to talk with Jeff and I wish more people had his moral integrity. Total runtime an hour and twenty one minutes. Enjoy!
