We start with an encouraging report of successes of the BDS campaign. A variety of corporations doing business with Israel have decided to take it elsewhere, including G4S and Veolia. A leading France-based Israeli businessman recently told the Israeli media that the growing strength of the BDS movement means that most major European companies now avoid investing in Israel.

Our feature presentation is by Nadia Ben Youssef, the US representative of the Human Rights organization and legal center, Adalah. Adalah means justice in Arabic and is based in Haifa. She speaks about the attempts by Adalah to save a Bedouin village in the Negev of Israel, a village named Um Al-Harran, which has been in existence since the early 1950’s. Now Israel has decided to level Um Al Harran to build a much larger, exclusively Jewish town that will be named just Harran. The Negev is huge and mostly unpopulated, yet Israel continues it’s purging of Bedouin villages by choosing this particular site for a new Jewish town, rather than building on much available vacant space.

Nadia gave this presentation at Tufts University. She is introduced by Tufts anthropology professor, Amahl Bishara.

Finally, we hear a quick interview of an amazing Palestinian journalist, author, and playwrite, Rula Jebreal, conducted by Max Blumenthal. Rula speaks about the AIPAC Conference, the Arab Spring, and the bias of the US media.
