Melanie Phillips on Israeli TV

The video below is a recent interview on Israeli TV with British journalist Melanie Phillips, author of Londonistan and The World Turned Upside Down: The Global Battle Over God, Truth and Power. Phillips is regularly vilified for her denunciations of the Palestinian version of our joint history, and is currently being investigated by Britain’s Press Complaints Commission for having had the temerity to describe the murderers of the Fogel family in Itamar as “savages.” She is almost invariably identified — derisively — as “right-wing” for her stance vis-a-vis Israel and the Palestinians.

The interview is striking, not only for Phillips’s eloquence with regard to the nature of the Arab-Israeli conflict but also for the passion with which she criticizes Israel’s concession of “the battleground of the mind.”
