By now we have all heard the reports that Trump is continuing the US assault on the Palestinian people by cutting off all aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). What does this mean for the Palestinian people, especially those in trapped in Gaza? We address that this morning in a presentation by Mohammed Eid, who was born and who grew up in a refugee camp in the Gaza strip, and who has been working for UNRWA in Gaza. Eid gave this power point presentation in the Palestine Center in Washington, DC. Unfortunately as a radio audience you will not see the images he occasionally refers to, but the power of his narrative is the core of the presentation and makes it relevant for our purposes.

In particular, he describes the culture of human warmth that makes Gaza a wonderful place to live despite Israel's vicious, never-ending bombings and home demolitions.. Braving Israel's endless checkpoints and brutal "security" apparatus is just a routine day for Palestinians, who do not respond in kind. He describes some of UNRWA's experiences.
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. It speaks from the point of view of Palestinians and those who care about them. TJR is aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, also streamed live and archived for two weeks at; TJR's modest website,, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible at TJR sometimes airs Palestine coverage IN ADDITION to that provided by This Week In Palestine. We hope you'll write to us at if you rebroadcast our work, or have questions or comments.
