We start today’s show with an important short interview, courtesy of the Electronic Intifada, on the significance of the recent American Studies Association BDS victory. Electronic Intifada correspondent Nora Barrows Friedman interviews professor and activist Steven Salaita about what this victory means for the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions Movement.
We follow this interview with part 1 of a debate, courtesy of Palestine Studies TV, that pits Hussein Ibish (Senior Fellow at the American Task Force on Palestine and columnist for the Nation) against Noura Erakat (Human rights attorney and co-founder of Jadaliyya) debating the question: Can the US broker a 2-State Solution? Part II of this interesting discussion will be broadcast two weeks from today. Stay tuned for a thought provoking segment of TWIP, and thank you for your support throughout the year in bringing the Palestinian perspective to a broader audience.
