Our feature presentation this week is a speech given by Ahmed Abuznaid at the Palestine Center in Washington, DC where he addresses the Intersectionality of the Palestinian liberation movement with Black Lives Matter. It has become clear that Palestinians and Black Americans face the same kind of struggles, thus joining together gives a bit of promise.

Once again we have a presentation that included visuals that you will not be able to see, but the rich narrative allows its use for a radio audience.

But first:

We are all aware of the Zionist campaign throughout the country to pressure colleges and universities to sanction professors who dare to teach any courses that study the colonization of Palestine by Israel. The professors, their courses, and all who support their academic freedom to teach are labeled “anti-Semitic”. This campaign is endemic across the country … well funded by pro-Zionist organizations and individuals who aim to silence anyone who dares take up the Palestinian narrative. Such a campaign has hit Tufts University. Its target is Professor Tom Abowd, who teaches a course called “Colonizing Palestine”. Abowd is a scholar, and author who wrote the book “Colonial Jerusalem - The Spatial Construction of Identity and Difference in a City of Myth, 1948–2012."

Tufts University is trying to terminate its five-year contract with Prof. Abowd now, after its first year, yielding to pressure from the same old Zionist pressure groups and wealthy alumni. This presents a serious academic freedom issue, similar to hundreds of others across the United States. We hope to have Tom Abowd back on this show in the near future to talk about the all too familiar smear campaign now being waged at Tufts.
