This Week In Palestine: John Mearsheimer on the gradual weakening of the massive Israel Lobby ..., Segment 1

4 giorni 11 ore ago
Our feature presentation today is a speech given at the spring conference of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA) by Professor John Mearsheimer. It is an assessment of the gradually waning power of the massive Israeli Lobby today. Mearsheimer is author, with Stephen Walt, of The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy (Harvard, 2007). He is introduced by WRMEA's Janet McMahon. Go to criticalstudies.org/john-mearsheimer-what-has-changed-since-publication-of-the-israel-lobby-and-what-the-new-administration-can-do-differently/ for a full transcript of this April 2017 talk. Before this, we start with a brief report from The Real News Network: an interview with German Reporter Shir Hever, who has studied the use of Israeli weaponry along its so-called "border" with Gaza. "Dumdum" bullets, prohibited since World War I, fired at short range from special high-powered sniper guns, are suddenly OK for Israeli attacks on protesters within Gaza. Dumdum bullets explode as they enter the victim's body, tearing flesh and deliberately causing massive wounds. How dare they protest! So far, over a hundred protesters murdered in cold blood and thousands gravely injured.

This Week In Palestine: Khitam Edelbi, Palestinian Expressive Therapist, describes her work in the West Bank, Segment 1

4 giorni 17 ore ago
Today we hear we hear an exclusive presentation by Palestinian Expressive Therapist, Khitam Edelbi. Khitam is completing her PhD through Lesley University, while actively conducting an expressive therapy program she created in the West Bank of Palestine. While in Cambridge this summer doing her academic course work, Khitam spoke at a fund raiser, describing her program, and we were there to record it. It begins with an introduction by Susan Jacoby. As Khitam explains, her expressive therapy program is directed at the children in Palestine who are victimized on a daily basis by sadistic Israeli soldiers, checkpoints, house demolitions, and other forms of Israel's wall-to-wall racism, brutality, and dehumanization. Of course Khitam's expressive therapy program doesn't stop any of that. What it does do is give those children a sense of dignity, self-worth, and resilience. Indirectly, it could lead to an uprising strong enough to make Israelis accountable for their outrageous criminal behavior.

Taylor Report: Indian Troops Must be Withdrawn, Segment 1

4 giorni 18 ore ago
At the request of India and with the agreement of Pakistan, the UN Security Council was asked to propose a settlement over the disputed territory of Kashmir. The resulting formula agreed upon by the UNSC was for the removal of troops and a vote by the people of Kashmir on whether they wished to be part of India or Pakistan. The Indian government delayed and then reneged, leaving the region with "unfinished business". Today there is popular peaceful-but-determined resistance to Indian rule.
