"Law and order": that's the magical solution to all problems, according to numerous politicians and thought leaders throughout this country and its favorite ally, Israel. Today we learn a few things about the meaning of Israeli law and order -- for Palestinians.

In the spring of 2017, the Palestinian Solidarity Committee at Harvard held a forum on campus featuring Palestinian and other voices exploring the realities of the Israeli occupation. Today we will hear just two of those voices, Nadia Ben Youssef, and Randa Wahbe. These speakers elaborate on the observation that law is a tool that oppressors use to oppress.

Nadia Ben Youssef is an attorney and the US staff representative of the Palestinian legal defense organization, Adalah, headquartered in Haifa.

Randa Wahbe is a PhD student in Anthropology at Harvard focusing her research the effects of settler colonialism in the West Bank, and is the former International Advocacy Coordinator for Ademeer, the Palestinian Prisoner support origination.

We begin with Nadia Ben Youssef and end with Randa Wahbe.
