Today we feature a conversation with our longtime friend, Palestinian scientist and activist Mazin Qumsiyeh. Mazin did research and taught medical genetics at both Yale and Duke Universities before returning to his hometown of Bethlehem in the West Bank of Palestine. He has authored 4 books, including the “must read” Sharing the Land of Canaan: Human Rights and the Israeli-Palestinian struggle. He founded the Palestine Museum of Natural History at Bethlehem University, where he also teaches. In fact he teaches in a variety of capacities, which he mentions in this informal conversation with a delegation from the United States which was visiting Palestine/Israel.

Before signing off, we announce some of the details of an ambitious conference being planned in Cambridge, Massachusetts entitled "Balfour’s Legacy: Confronting the Consequences," to be held on November 11th at the First Parish Church in Harvard Square. It's a 10-hour marathon with at least 20 speakers. We hope to have recordings available afterward.
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. (At this important time, TJR has been airing Palestine coverage IN ADDITION to that provided by This Week In Palestine.)
