Today we hear a presentation by social scientist and pollster Khalil Shikaki. He is professor of Political Science and director of the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah, Palestine. Since 2005 he has also been a senior fellow at the Crown Center for Middle East Studies at Brandeis University. This Week In Palestine recorded this presentation at Harvard University. For over 25 years he has been measuring public opinion in both Palestine and Israel, especially as it relates to the peace process, with a focus lately on opinion concerning the so-called two-state solution. This is a power point presentation which puts us, as radio audience, at a bit of disadvantage. But his research findings are clearly articulated, making our audio recording relevant for broadcast.

Though nominally Palestinian, Shikaki does not advocate justice for Palestinians. He observes that the "two sides" currently disagree, as demonstrated by his group's opinion polls, not mentioning the oppressor-oppressed relationship. Then he presents the hypothesis that this disagreement can be "solved" by positing the now-impossible "two-state solution" and adding sufficient additional provisions to gradually change enough opinions and thus achieve majority support from "both sides." He also assumes that each "side" would honor the agreement fully and equally! Early on, he dismissed the views of the allegedly measured minority who want one democratic state.

Despite all of his distinguished titles, a question arises about Shikaki's bona fides. At least one of us here at Truth and Justice Radio views him as a charlatan and turncoat, which is not unusual in the Harvard environment.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly 8am feature of Truth and Justice Radio (TJR)) is an award-winning 45-minute (or more) 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. TJR is aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, also streamed live and archived for two weeks at wzbc.org; TJR's modest website, truthandjusticeradio.org, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible at radio4all.net. TJR sometimes airs Palestine coverage IN ADDITION to that provided by This Week In Palestine. We hope you'll write to us at tjradio@fastmail.com if you rebroadcast our work, or have questions or comments.
