Our entire broadcast today is our conversation with Boston College Professor Eve Spangler (evespangler.com; bc.edu/schools/cas/sociology/faculty/profiles/eve-spangler), who for the last decade has taught a course on the Israel/Palestine conflict. As part of the course she takes her students to Israel/Palestine each January.
Upon her return just a few weeks ago, she wrote an engaging article for the news service Mondoweiss (mondoweiss.net/2017/01/perfect-rights-netanyahu/). It is the observations she made during this last trip, reflected in that article, that we will discuss today.
Eve is also an author…her most recent book is "Understanding Israel Palestine: Race, Nation, and Human Rights in the Conflict" (sensepublishers.com/catalogs/bookseries/teaching-race-and-ethnicity/understanding-israel-palestine/), where she applies human rights standards to the current struggle -- a must read.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly part of Truth and Justice Radio) is an award-winning three-quarter-hour 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. It's a regular part of Truth and Justice Radio, aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, streaming live and archived for two weeks at wzbc.org; TJR's website, truthandjusticeradio.org, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible at radio4all.net or by navigating through our playlists. (At this important time, TJR has been airing Palestine coverage IN ADDITION to that provided by This Week In Palestine.) We hope you'll write to us at email@example.com if you rebroadcast our work, or have questions or comments.
