Richman explains the long history of Israelis trying to force Palestinians out of Palestine, which is not a new phenomenon. He goes so far as to say that this process is a genocide, as it is literally the destruction of a people and a nation. Luckily, it seems as though American Jews—young progressives in particular—are waking up to what the Israeli government is doing, and many no longer feel they can support Israel.
