The supply of military aid and intelligence to Israel continues despite the World Court’s ruling on a plausible case of genocide by Israel of the Palestinian people. Today 5pm EST.
It’s hard to imagine a decision that is more impactful on a nation than a decision to go to war, or to arm and support the destruction of another country or its people in an act of genocide.
And yet in Western nations, sometimes under the cover of so-called national security, such decisions are taken and executed in secrecy and with impunity, regardless of the cost to human life, both foreign and domestic, and damage to the environment.
We have three guests, from the U.K. and Australia, who have been tracking the ongoing supply of military aid and intelligence to Israel, which continues despite the International Court of Justice decision on intermediary measures to prevent what it considers a plausible case of genocide by Israel of the Palestinian people.
Australian Greens Senator David Shoebridge is investigating what weapons Australia is exporting and where they end up; Peter Cronau, an investigative journalist from Declassified Australia is looking into satellite-generated signals intelligence shared by Australia with Israel to target Gaza; and Matt Kennard from Declassified UK has been reporting on similar aid from Britain, gleaned from spy planes flying out of Cyprus.
