This week we take a look at the sweep of the history of the so-called peace process, which, as it is often said, is more about process than about peace. Palestinian scholar and author Khaled Elgindy, who has been in the middle of this process as a consultant to the PLO for years, has written a new book called The Blind Spot that takes a critical look at this painful process from the inside. Here he speaks to an audience at the Jerusalem Fund and Palestine Center in Washington DC about his book and where it has taken him. He is introduced by Executive Director Mohamed Mohamed.

Shaped by the pressures of American domestic politics and the special relationship with Israel, Washington’s distinctive “blind spot” to Israeli power and Palestinian politics has deep historical roots, dating back to the 1917 Balfour Declaration and the British Mandate. The size of the blind spot has varied over the years and from one administration to another, but it is always present, helping to bolster Israel's intent to continue its brutal occupation and expansion and avoid any resolution in any way favorable to Palestine.
Begun in 2004, 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.
