We spend a good deal of time on This Week In Palestine analyzing and exposing the efforts of the Israeli Lobby to counter attempts by Palestinian organizations and voices to educate and organize on behalf of the Palestinian people who dare to resist the occupation of the Palestinian homeland by the Israeli military. One of the major efforts of this Israeli project is the censorship of speakers, forums, and organizing efforts by pro Palestinian organizations on US university campuses. It is a frightening, well-financed, assault on free speech and academic freedom. But it goes well beyond the campaigns fueled by the Israeli Lobby, it also includes dark money from the far right using censorship techniques to advance the far right agenda and silence criticism from the left. It has penetrated the classroom as well as other campus forums and extracurricular activities.

Today we examine this phenomenon through a webinar held at Umass Boston featuring three of its professors, Heike Shotten, Leila Farsakh and Andrew Leong, joined by Trinity University professor, Isaac Kamola. Prof Heike Shotten begins with introductions.
