We begin this week with the voice of Noura Erakat, a frequent guest on This Week In Palestine. She is a Palestinian attorney and professor at Rutgers University, and the cousin of Ahmed Erakat. Ahmed, 27, was recently gunned down and left unattended to bleed to death at a checkpoint on the West Bank, on his way to pick up his sister on her wedding day. He himself was to be married in the very near future. That checkpoint, like many others, cannot even remotely be claimed to protect Israelis from Palestinians. Its entire purpose is to make life more difficult for Palestinians traveling within non-Israeli Palestine. We present this story's recent coverage on Amy Goodman's Democracy Now.

We then return to the ongoing story of the attempts by the Zionist Lobby to silence voices critical of Israel on US Campuses across this country. It doesn’t end. And our coverage of this struggle will not end as long as it continues. Today we feature Prof Hatem Bazian of the University of California in Berkeley, along with two members of Students for Justice in Palestine at Tufts University discussing this assault on free speech with Dale Sprusansky, editor of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs.
