Israeli investigative journalist Ronen Bergman gives a rare candid interview with PBS on the radical ideological and religious underpinnings of Israel’s policy of targeted killings.
Israeli investigative journalist Ronen Bergman explains the history and radical ideological and religious underpinnings of this rogue policy tacitly endorsed by the United States.
“The state of Israel has a history of great violence, visited on it by its enemies and in return by Israel’s own intelligence services and military. In “Rise and Kill First,” journalist and author Ronen Bergman writes about the nearly century-long campaign of targeted killing. He joins Nick Schifrin to discuss the secret history of these strikes.” (PBS)
