This Podcast and Palestine Before October 7th

Episode 312: Rumble with Michael Moore


Not a day goes by that I don’t think about the onslaught against the people of Gaza by Benjamin Netanyahu and the bombs that Biden is sending him — courtesy of you and I and every other tax-paying American. 

Yet, this conflict didn’t begin on October 7. In fact, the persecution and imprisonment of the Palestinian people has been going on for generations. It’s a story I’ve been covering since the early days of my newspaper, The Flint Voice, in the 1970s — and when I first traveled to Gaza, West Bank and Israel in the 1980s.

As history continues to sadly repeat itself, on this episode of Rumble with Michael Moore (recorded on Easter Sunday), I look back on previous discussions between 2019 and 2023 of the Palestinian struggle on my podcast — talking about how journalists both here and in Palestine have been harassed and killed, how a one-state solution might be the best path to democracy and peace, and how visiting occupied Palestine as a young journalist changed me forever.

Please listen, and share.

— Mike

P.S. Watching Netanyahu and his “war cabinet” and generals over the past few days since the killing of the World Central Kitchen chefs and food workers has been revolting. Listening to the Israeli leaders tell one lie after another is breathtaking. Can someone please tell them that no one with a brain or a conscience believes them. No one is buying the official story. This humanitarian convoy was specifically targeted. The Israelis fired three missiles only at these three clearly marked aid vehicles. Murdered. Because these aid workers were disrupting the government plan of genocide through starvation. Chef Andres was providing Gazans with 300,000 meals A DAY! IT HAD TO BE STOPPED. How do I know this? Because I’m a citizen of the country funding and arming this mass slaughter. I live under a government that has often been the biggest bunch of liars throughout history (Gulf of Tonkin) and the OG of a genocide so massive (tens of millions of Native peoples and enslaved humans) over the longest period in history (1492 until the present). So Israel is just continuing what we started. Pathetic. Sick. Evil. And it’s up to us to stop it.

** In order to have a troll-free, hate-free comments section — and because if there’s one thing I know about my crazy haters, they would rather spend an eternity in hell with Marjorie Taylor Greene than send me $5 if forced to become a paid subscriber — my Comments section here on my Substack is limited to paid subscribers. But, not to worry — anyone can send me their comments, opinions and thoughts by writing to me at mike@michaelmoore.com. I read every one of them, though obviously I can’t respond to all. And every few weeks or so I share them publicly here on Substack and on my podcast so that your voice is heard by the multitudes in this wonderful community of readers and listeners. The solution here is not optimal but it has worked and my Comments section has become a great meeting place for people wanting to discuss the ideas and issues I raise here. There is debate and disagreement, but it is refreshing to have it done with respect and civility, unfettered by the stench of bigotry and Q-anon insanity.
