Our feature presentation today is another of the conversations that a group of Boston area travelers had on their trip to Palestine/Israel through the GRALTA Foundation. They sat down with Ray Dolphin of the United Nations Office of the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), who is assigned to Palestine/Israel. The UN plays a limited, but critical role in maintaining the daily affairs of the Palestinian people living under occupation. Ray Dolphin discusses that role in this informal conversation.

Before that, we begin with a very critical analysis of the dearth of political leadership within Palestine today: a critique written by Rami Khoury, Professor of Journalism at the American University in Beirut and senior fellow at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. It is both an analysis and a plea for a change of the Palestinian leadership.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly 8am feature of Truth and Justice Radio (TJR)) is an award-winning 45-minute (or more) 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.
