The Grapevine: How Israel Exports Spyware Around The Globe

The Palestine Laboratory is a new book by journalist Antony Loewenstein that documents how Israel’s subjugation of the Palestinian people serves as a testing ground for weapons and surveillance systems that are then exported around the world.

Built on extensive research, interviews and on-the-ground reporting, the book draws on modern events including Harvey Weinstein, 9/11 and the current crisis in Ukraine to show the consequences of a military industrial complex that facilitates the persecution of groups in many parts of the world.

Antony joined Dylan and Kulja on The Grapevine to talk through it all.

“What’s happening in Palestine is not staying there… the occupation is being exported… The technologies and tools that Israel has developed over decades whether its spyware… drones or facial recognition technology… is now a massive export business to countless countries around the world.”
