Today we have a triple-header. We begin with the introduction of a podcast which has a similar mission to that of This Week In Palestine. It is a podcast created by Nadia Abuelezam called Palestinians Podcast, and its mission is to give voice to Palestinians telling their stories. It can be accessed on the internet as PalestiniansPodcast.com.

We sat down with Nadia to let her tell her story about the creation of Palestinians Podcast and a bit about her journey growing up Arab in America . Nadia Abuelezam is a second generation Palestinian who was raised in the San Francisco area. She is an assistant professor at Boston College School of Nursing and is an epidemiologist.

For our second segment today we feature journalist and author, Max Blumenthal interviewing new Israeli historian, Ilan Pappe on his newest book, Ten Myths About Israel, as recorded on The Real News Network.

Finally, before we end today, we read a news account from Telesure that wraps up the Palestinian Prisoners' hunger strike, which is now mercifully over.

After more than 1,500 Palestinian prisoners staged a mass, historic hunger strike for 40 days, the Palestinian Committee of Prisoners' officials confirmed that nearly 80 percent of the prisoners’ demands were met as the strike ended. After 40 days, the health of many prisoners was deteriorating rapidly, with 182 striking political prisoners having been hospitalized. The strike was met with solidarity demonstrations throughout occupied Palestine, and around the world, with near-daily demonstrations, rallies, protests, and strikes.
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 tjradio@fastmail.com if you rebroadcast our work, or have questions or comments.
