Professor Antony Anghie recently received the 2023 Manley O. Hudson Medal from the American Society of International Law (ASIL). This award is given to a distinguished person for outstanding contributions to scholarship and achievement in international law. This award is ASIL’s highest honor.
Professor Anghie’s scholarship, teaching and insights have had a profound and transformative effect on the field of international law and international legal scholarship.“I have taught at many law schools in the United States and around the world, some of them very famous,” Anghie said. “What I have learned from this experience is that it is only at the University of Utah that I could have done my cholarship. I am immensely grateful to the law school and the special traditions of support and collegiality we have created here, and I feel very fortunate to be a part of this community.”

Attached is a video clip of a statement made by Yair Lapid on 24 October which (thank God) was broadcast on RUSSIA TODAY. You won’t find it in the Western media. It serves as a reminder that people do need to watch RT because that’s where you can find all the juicy news the West ignores.
Yair Lapid stated,
“If the international media is objective, it serves Hamas. If it just shows both sides, it serves Hamas. My argument is that the media can’t just claim to bring both sides of the story. If you do that, you are only bringing one, Hamas’ side. That’s cowardly and it’s lazy. It’s an insult, insult to the victims including the Palestinian victims. It is also an insult to the core idea of what journalism is. Believe me, I know, I was a journalist for 31 years. — Yair Lapid, Israeli Prime Minister, July- December 2022.
This is an extremely irrational and fallacious argument, very much in the spirit of the propaganda rhetoric that once came from Joseph Goebbels.

Who will pay for the 20 years we lost?” is an essay written by the Palestinian writer Yousef Dawas. Here, he recalls the destruction of his family’s orchard by an Israeli missile strike in May 2022. The orchard was his family’s history and heritage with olives, orange, lemons, guavas, and pomegranates. For a Palestinian, the destruction of trees and orchards can be more painful that the destruction of one’s home because these things are often tied to one’s family history and heritage.
