This week on Yeah Nah Pasaran! on 3CR we talk to writer Antony Loewenstein [Twitter/X] about his new book The Palestine Laboratory: How Israel Exports The Technology Of Occupation Around The World (Verso/Scribe, 2023).
Israel’s military industrial complex uses the occupied, Palestinian territories as a testing ground for weaponry and surveillance technology that they then export around the world to despots and democracies. For more than 50 years, occupation of the West Bank and Gaza has given the Israeli state invaluable experience in controlling an “enemy” population, the Palestinians. It’s here that they have perfected the architecture of control.
Best-selling journalist Antony Loewenstein, author of Disaster Capitalism, uncovers this largely hidden world in a global investigation with secret documents, revealing interviews and on-the-ground reporting.
You can listen to some of Antony’s initial thoughts on the latest conflict by way of the ABC here. See : Declassified Australia for more samples of Antony work on the state, security and surveillance.
