Richard Medhurst

Apr 12, 2024

Richard Medhurst highlights how Western powers like Britain, France, and America imposed arbitrary borders on the Middle East over a century ago, creating artificial nations like Israel, Lebanon, and Jordan. These borders, drawn without input from the region's people, have led to ongoing conflicts, including ethnic cleansing and displacement. He criticizes Western colonialism and intervention for perpetuating instability and oppression in the Middle East and calls for undoing these borders and reparations for the damages caused.
