This week our Palestinian voice is that of our old friend Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh, who never fails to challenge us with the depth of his political analysis. Today we feature Mazin speaking to the Jerusalem Fund in Washington, DC on May 22, 2018. His subject: “Mayhem vs. Sanity in Western Asia…Why Palestine is still the issue.”

In this extraordinarily wide-ranging speech, Mazin observes that almost every nation in the world is a colonizer or colonized, depending on whether it has nuclear weapons. He views the entire 8000-year history of homo sapiens as a mere click away from ending.

This is neither the first nor the last time you'll hear Mazin's wisdom on This Week In Palestine. Mazin is an MD geneticist who taught at Duke and Yale Universities before returning to his home in Beit Sahour, Palestine where he continues to teach at Bethlehem University and Birzeit University. He is also the founder and director of the growing Museum of Natural History at Bethlehem University. It's clearly a labor of love, for which he accepts no pay.
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. It speaks from the point of view of Palestinians and those who care about them. TJR is aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, also streamed live and archived for two weeks at; TJR's modest 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. TJR sometimes airs Palestine coverage IN ADDITION to that provided by This Week In Palestine. We hope you'll write to us at if you rebroadcast our work, or have questions or comments.
