Abby Martin Breaks the Set on More West Bank Settlements, IDF Soldiers Against Militarism, Prohibition in Gaza, and Life and Loathing in Greater Israel. RT 15 Sept 2014.

EPISODE BREAKDOWN: On this episode of Breaking the Set, Abby Martin reports on the announcement by Israel that 1,000 acres of land have been claimed for a new settlement bloc near Bethlehem, discussing the continued expansion of Israeli settlement in Palestinian territories. Abby then speaks with Eran Efrati, a former IDF soldier who recounts his experience being ostracized for attempting to expose crimes he witnessed as a soldier. Abby then outlines a few of the various goods banned from entering Gaza under Israel’s blockade, and how a ban on cement and other construction materials could mean that it will take several decades to rebuild Gaza. BTS wraps up the show with an interview with journalist and author Max Blumenthal, discussing his book ‘Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel’ which explores the true makeup of modern Israeli society and its policies toward the Palestinian territories.
