In this episode of The Source, we speak with independent journalist, author and economist Dr. Shir Hever about how and why his lecture on child labor in Palestine was abruptly censored by the GEW (Education and Science Workers’ Union) in Germany. We also talk about a recent Forbidden Stories article detailing how Israeli companies played a key role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal and continue to provide hacking services that influence countries’ elections. We also examine the China-brokered peace deal between Saudi Arabia and Iran and the international significance it has for Israel. To conclude the interview, we take a look at recent developments between Israel and Palestine, focusing on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s judicial reform in Israel.
