In the city of Nabulus in the West Bank of Palestine, a linguistic professor by the name of Mohammed Salwaha founded a project following the signing of the Oslo Accords, to prepare the Palestinian people for the democratic state they thought was promised by the Accords. Although the democratic state never came, the project called the Palestinian House of Friendship has flourished with a broadened mission and a new purpose.

Mohammed Salwaha spoke at a fundraiser for that project in Cambridge a few weeks ago, and his speech is the focus of our first presentation today.

Our concluding part is an interview with Columbia University Historian, Rashid Khalidi, conducted by Nadar Hashemi, political scientist at the University of Denver concerning the Palestinian political leadership, where is it, how has it succeeded or failed, where is it going…questions we are all asking these days.
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 live and archived for two weeks at; TJR's website,, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible at or by navigating through our playlists.
