Today's show is in three parts, as the title suggests. The first two are disturbing news stories, and the third is an interview with Israeli journalist Max Blumenthal.

We begin with a story out of Bethlehem…the wanton Israeli destruction of a brand new, desperately needed, internationally funded school the very day before school started. Sharen Khalel reports this in Mondoweiss, which.we read.

Our next story involves the outrageous arrest of Issa Amro, Palestinian activist and voice of the people. Issa Amro of the most beloved activists working in the very dangerous area of Hebron, perhaps the most active area of Israeli settler violence. The charge: posting criticism on Facebook. It is yet another example of the collaboration of the Palestinian Authority with the Israeli military…indeed the PA has become an arm of the occupation.

Finally, we play Abby Martin's interview of Max Blumenthal on Telesur’s Empire files.
