A new book titled The Movement and the Middle East offers the first assessment of the controversial and ultimately debilitating role of the Arab-Israeli conflict among left-wing activists during a turbulent period of American history. Today we feature the author of that book, historian Michael Fischbach, speaking at the Palestine Center in Washington DC. Michael Fischbach shows how, as the 1970s wore on, the cleavages emerging within the American Left widened, weakening the Movement and leaving a lasting impact that still affects progressive American politics today.

We include in our broadcast both the presentation and interaction of Dr. Fischbach with the audience in a discussion that directly follows his speech.

We are struggling to get this show back on the air at WZBC. When Boston College sent its students home, the station got switched over to 100% robotically sequenced music. If this is not resolved, please listen online from this posting, or at 8am EDT at (our friendly sister station), .

Begun in 2004, 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.
