Today we continue our coverage of the Balfour Legacy Conference held on November 11th In Cambridge. But first we take a look at the emerging story involving the confession of Former US National Security Advisor Michael Flynn to lying to the FBI about efforts of the incoming Trump Administration to help Israel avoid censure at the UN Security Council concerning its illegal settlements on occupied Palestinian land. The mainstream media is handling this as a story involving Flynn’s collusion with the Russians, but you hear or read little about the fact that much of this involvement is at the behest of Israel. As usual, the media is quick to blame the Russians, and slow to include Israel’s heavy-handed involvement. We'll read Ali Abunimah's exposé of this in Electronic Intifada.

Following that, first, we'll hear Leila Farsakh, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, who is also a senior research fellow at Birzeit University in the West Bank of Palestine. Leila gives her Introduction and Overview of 100 years of the Balfour Declaration.

Then, as promised last week, we'll hear Nancy Murray, longtime activist for Palestinian Rights, a co-founder of the Gaza Mental Health Foundation, and a key organizer of this Balfour Legacy Conference. Nancy speaks on the Consequences of the Balfour Declaration ... for the USA.

This is the FOURTH of five consecutive shows covering the conference "Balfour’s Legacy: Confronting the Consequences," held on November 11th at the First Parish Church in Cambridge MA.
