Colonial Legalism - 100 Years Since Balfour, Dispossession of Palestine with Dr. Hatem Bazian

In 67 words, Balfour and London dispossessed the Palestinians and incubated Zionism, imperial Europe’s last settler colonial project. Certainly, the ongoing conflict in Palestine is not isolated from the broader colonial legacies in the Global South, and its effects continue to be witnessed to this day.
