In this one-hour edition, we feature two human rights giants from Palestine…each of whom has a long record of resistance to the Israeli occupation going back to their youth, which, of course translates into being considered terrorists by the Israeli government. And as a result of that resistance they have arrest, detention and prison records, as do virtually all resisters to the occupation, which means obtaining visas to travel is very difficult and sometimes impossible. But this time they were able to get the necessary documents to come to the United States and we are most fortunate to have their voices this morning on TWIP.

Raji Sourani lives in Gaza and is the founder and Director of Palestinian Center for Human Rights.

Shawan Jabarin lives in Ramallah and is Director of Al Haq, the oldest and best-known human rights organization in the West Bank, and a member of the Advisory Committee of Human Rights Watch.

The presentations you will hear this morning were recorded at an event at the JFK School of Government at Harvard University.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly part of Truth and Justice Radio) is an award-winning three-quarter-hour 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. It speaks from the point of view of Palestinians and those who care about them. It's a regular part of Truth and Justice Radio, aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, streaming and archived for two weeks at; TJR's website,, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; earlier editions are obtainable from or by navigating through our playlists.
