This past week we lost a great champion of Palestinian rights, namely Dr. Joel Kovel, who passed away. Kovel was a sharp critic of Zionism, and his meticulously researched books, articles and lectures made him a target of the pro-Israel propaganda machine.

Kovel delved deeply into a variety of disciplines, ultimately writing books on several. This breadth is explored at length by Wikipedia's description of his life work

In the context of the then-recent damning report by the internationally respected Justice Goldstone, a self-proclaimed Zionist, and the Orwellian response of our so-called leaders in the U.S., we decided to do an in-depth interview with this famed Jewish professor. His then-recent book is Overcoming Zionism: Creating a Single Democratic State in Israel/Palestine (2007). This seems to have gotten him fired from his longtime professorship at Bard College.

We present that interview again today, slightly edited. The interviewers were our colleagues John Grebe and Ken Barney. You will hear the passionate voice of This Week In Palestine's originator, Sherif Fam, at the beginning and end, may he rest in peace.
