Juan Cole of the website Informed Comment was interviewed by Cenk Uyger on the Young Turks. If you have not checked out Informed Comment I highly recommend it for really good analysis of what is happening in the Middle East.
Cenk asks Professor Cole about what lead up to the current Israeli attack on Gaza. Juan Cole debuncts the notion that Israel's attack is in self defense, or that this attack is a response to rocket attacks.
It is too bad that the mainstream media won't report the reality of Israel's attack, but just the spin.
Watch the Interview here:
Cenk does a really good job of pointing out the sheer lunacy of Israel's goal, and why this attack will fail.
