Prabir Purkaystha, Editor of the Newsclick and Prof. A.K.Ramakrishnan from Centre for West Asian Studies, School of International Studies, JNU, talked about the ongoing protests in Palestine against Israel occupation. Prof. Ramakrishnan believes that the Palestinians are on the verge of third Intifada as the peace talks lay defunct. They do not have any other option but to take matters in their own hands. Adding to it, Prabir spoke about the failure of Palestinian Authority in ensuring justice to the people of Gaza. He added that apart from taking formal stands in UN, the Palestinian government has failed to provide something concrete which has resulted in wide spread resistance from the people themselves. They also discussed about Geo-political situation of entire West Asia and pointed out that international community should stand in solidarity with the people of Palestine. Prof. Ramakrishnan told about the protest demonstrations against Indian President in Jerusalem and called it shameful situation for the Indian state. India and Palestine has a history of cordial relation which is based on mutual respect and willingness to act for each other’s cause. They also emphasized on need for building strong BDS campaign against the Israeli apartheid.
