War with Iran. Not a day passes that we do not hear our media pundits speculate on this possible disaster. Unfortunately, they have good reason. President Trump is reneging on the Obama signed nuclear treaty with Iran (so much for honoring our word on treaties), and the constant undercurrent is that we are doing this at the behest of Israel.

Today's speeches were delivered in March 2018 at a conference put together by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. Two months after this, Israeli soldiers followed their leaders' commands to shoot thousands of nonviolent Palestinian protesters inside Gaza, killing 60+ and injuring thousands.

First, Army Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson provides support for the argument that Israel is pushing for an attack of Iran. Second, activist Law professor Noura Erakat addresses the rich topic of Israel’s violations of International Law. We include introductions of both speakers.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly 8am feature of Truth and Justice Radio (TJR)) is an award-winning 45-minute (or more) 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.
