The Punishment of Gaza

Gideon Levy
Johann Hari

He has been called “a propagandist for Hamas” by Israeli right-wingers but sees himself as a patriot who wants to be proud of his country. He told Johann Hari what makes him angry and ashamed, his duty to fight injustice and inhumanity with his pen and his hopes for the future.

Gideon Levy writes the weekly “Twilight Zone” column for Haaretz. His many awards include the Euro-Med prize for journalism. The Punishment of Gaza is his recent work.

Johann Hari is a columnist for The Independent. A frequent broadcaster, he has won numerous awards for his journalism and his articles are published worldwide.
