An interview direct from Gaza City with Dr. Haidar Eid, a professor and co-founder of the One Democratic State Group. Dr. Eid gave us the horrific details of what is happening on the ground around him, and talked about the civilian deaths and the destruction. He was very critical of the U.S. government and the Arab regimes, and felt the complicity of all of them would provoke a public outcry in the Arab world. Dr. Eid concluded by calling on peace-loving people to join the global Boycott Israel movement and speak out against the Israeli aggression.
