Selling Israeli Militarism Like Toothpaste
On Wednesday, June 22,
Israel held the largest war exercise in its history.
The Real News’ Lia Tarachansky interviewed Rela Mazali, a founder of New Profile,
an organization working to demilitarize Israeli society,
and Alex Cohn, a war resister who served five months for objecting to serve in the army.
Cohn analyses a children’s show that portrays a typical interaction between soldiers and Israeli children
as part of a discussion on the insidious prevalence of militarism in Israeli society.
