This Week In Palestine: Rashid Khalidi on Palestine in the Age of Trump, Segment 1

2 months 3 weeks ago
Today we feature a speech given by Columbia University Professor Rashid Khalidi during Columbia’s Anti Apartheid Rally, March 1st, 2017. His topic: Palestine in the Age of Trump. First Khalidi is introduced, then he presents. We apologize for the harsh audio distortion in that recording. We'll replace it if we can find a better one. But first, we read a speech on commonality delivered at a rally in Chicago by Lesley Williams, an Afro-American of the Jewish Faith and member of Jewish Voice for Peace. He calls out the so-called Anti-Defamation League (ADL) for its extensive spying on Muslim, Arab, anti-apartheid and other political activists. It was also revealed that the ADL spied on and passed information to South African authorities on African National Congress leader Chris Hani, shortly before his assassination. He continues: "So I ask my white Jewish friends and family: is the perceived safety of people who look like you worth the continued oppression, incarceration and murder of people who look like me?" Williams hopes that the obscenity of Charlottesville will lead all Americans to examine their complicity in tolerating institutional oppression. But in particular, Jewish Voice for Peace calls on our own Jewish community to condemn and disavow our organizational support of racism and Islamophobia, both past and present.
