Journalists Rula Jebreal and Philip Weiss on the bias of American media as regards Israel/Palestine
This Week In Palestine (a weekly part of Truth and Justice Radio) is an award-winning three-quarter-hour segment of news from Palestine and discussion of issues relevant to the Palestinians’ struggle for freedom from Israel’s brutal military occupation and colonization of their homeland. It speaks from the point of view of Palestinians and those who care about them.
Our feature presentation today is another of the conversations that a group of Boston area travelers had on their trip to Palestine/Israel through the GRALTA Foundation. They sat down with Ray Dolphin of the United Nations Office of the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), who is assigned to Palestine/Israel. The UN plays a limited, but critical role in maintaining the daily affairs of the Palestinian people living under occupation. Ray Dolphin discusses that role in this informal conversation.
Before that, we begin with a very critical analysis of the dearth of political leadership within Palestine today: a critique written by Rami Khoury, Professor of Journalism at the American University in Beirut and senior fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. It is both an analysis and a plea for a change of the Palestinian leadership.
