This Week In Palestine: Susan Abulhawa on Israel's arms sales per capita

Date Uploaded: 2019-04-23 20:45:28.0
This week we have the privilege of hearing Susan Abulhawa's remarkable keynote address at the recent conference sponsored by Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. Susan is a renowned Palestinian writer and activist and founder of the organization Playgrounds for Palestine. As a speaker and promoter of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) Movement, she is appearing at many venues.

As her introducer explains, Susan first had a successful career in biomedical science, after which she became an acclaimed poet and book author, regarded as "up there with Charles Dickens." Her novel, "Mornings in Jenin," has been translated into 28 languages. Same for "The Blue Between Sky and Water." The list goes on.

As you'll hear today, Susan has examined some of boasts floated by Israel's vast PR machine, for example the false claim that Israel pioneered water desalinization, the false claim that Israel "made the desert bloom," or the false claim that Israel is environmentally responsible. All nonsense. Susan points out that historic Palestine's rainfall is equal to that in London, England, but Israel has squandered that rainfall while grabbing the share that rightly belongs to current Palestinians.

Perhaps the most upsetting of Israel's boasts is its preeminence as an arms exporter. Unlike the others, that boast is true, and perhaps understated. After some digging, Susan was able to calculate the arms exports per capita of a variety of countries including the USA. In fact, Israel is #1 by a huge margin!

Prior to Susan's keynote, we begin with a voice out of Gaza, the beloved and distinguished voice of Haidar Eid. Haidar Eid is Associate Professor of Postcolonial and Postmodern Literature at Gaza's al-Aqsa University. Here is a quote: “Today I participated in the Great March of Return with tens of thousands of Gazans. We marched on the fence of the Gaza concentration camp marking Land Day and the one-year anniversary of the March. We had the mother of all marches, sending a loud message to apartheid Israel, that we have not forgotten any of our rights. In the process we lost three young men and 316 protesters were injured, according to Gaza’s ministry of health. ..."



Taylor Report: Nationalize General Motors, Oshawa's Green New Deal

Date Uploaded: 2019-04-23 20:12:27.0
The big automakers make all their plans behind closed doors. They shut plants when it suits them. General Motors, Oshawa is a case in point.

But a new mood is growing within organized labour and in the communities that find themselves on the short end of the stick. Talk of a Green New Deal is opening people's eyes to the possibility of putting the community first, creating electric automobiles for example.

Yanis Varoufakis was already an internationally known economist and academic when he was elected to the Greek parliament as a member of the Syriza party. He served as Minister of Finance from January to July 2015. He resigned when Syriza broke its campaign promise to re-negotiate Greece's debt and significantly curtail the austerity measures imposed on Greece.

Yanis Varoufakis is answering the question: What's wrong in Europe today and how to fix it tomorrow morning and presents the Green New Deal for Europe and how it will tackle underemployment & involuntary migration.

Yanis Vaorufakis is running in the elections for the European Parliament in May 2019 with a coalition of 11 European states under the auspices of DiEM25 - the Democracy in Europe movement that he co-founded.

His eminence clarified that the followers of all the heavenly religions agree on the concept of the emergence of a savior, despite the differences over his identity, adding that this concept gives people hope to confront oppression.
“However, despair leads to surrender and loss.”
Sayyed Nasrallah pointed out that if the Palestinians did not remain hopeful, Trump would impose the ‘Deal of the Century’ on them, adding that hope and trust in God have enabled them to challenge all the world’s tyrants....



Radio Curious: Dr. Richard Alston – The Economics of Party Politics

After the Democratic National Convention and the Republican National Convention in 1992, Richard M. Alston, who was then chairman of the Economics Department at Webber State University in Ogden, Utah, sent a political survey to the delegates to that convention. This survey concerned the perceptions of convention delegates regarding economic issues in the United States. As a delegate to the Democratic National Convention I was sent one his surveys, and decided to ask Professor Alston for an interview. In our interview we discussed the survey and what information he hoped to ascertain with it as well as the role of economists in academic institutions in America. This program was originally broadcast in November of 1992, when Radio Curious was called Government, Politics and Ideas.

Sea Change Radio: Lloyd Alter: Transportation Puzzles

Date Uploaded: 2019-04-23 15:07:57.0
The industrial revolution ushered in an era of more efficient transportation. As history has shown us, the impact of our ability to move easily across town and across the planet is complex. It has made the world smaller but it has also given rise to the climate crisis. This week on Sea Change Radio we speak to TreeHugger‘s Lloyd Alter about innovations in the transportation space. First, we look at one of the cleanest, oldest and best forms of modern transport: the bicycle. We look at the latest designs in e-bikes, discuss whether or not they will come down in price and become more ubiquitous, and examine the gender gap in cycling. Then we talk about the threat that cheap flights and booming ridership pose for the planet, and the future of self-driving cars and ride-sharing.

There are many signs of US sabotage and mischief against Venezuela. But Eva Bartlett, who visited various districts in and around Caracas, found the people coping and politically aware.

Washington's latest efforts to undermine the Bolivarian Revolution have not deceived a population wise in the ways of imperialism.
