In Dec. ‘09, Khalil Bendib, co-host of KPFA’s Voices of the ME & No. Africa, interviewed Noam Chomsky on the Israel-Palestine conflict. He then invited him to an on-air debate with Ali Abunimah over their differences re the BDS movement & with Jeff Blankfort on the power the pro-Israel Lobby. When Chomsky declined to debate them, Bendib presented a virtual debate in which listeners hear Chomsky’s criticisms of the BDS movement and Abunimah’s response, then Chomsky’s position on the power of the Lobby and Blankfort’s critique of his position. The 1/6/10 program was recently rebroadcast.
