Eric Fosse on use of DIME weapons in Gaza

PULSE co-editor Robin was recently in Norway for a conference on ‘Deconstructing the War on Terror’ (You can read his key arguments in this post on his blog). The panel had many excellent speakers but Robin tells me that he was most impressed by Dr. Eric Fosse’s presentation which, contrary to what one would expect, was more than an account of shambles that is Gaza’s healthcare system. Fosse presented a sophisticated political analysis that explained Israel’s objectives behind the assault and the events leading up to it.

Here are reports from Al Jazeera and Russia Today on Israel’s use of illegal weapons including interviews with Fosse.
