This Week In Palestine: Ahmed Abuznaid on intersectionality of Black and Palestinian...

Date Uploaded: 2018-10-17 20:14:45.0
Our feature presentation this week is a speech given by Ahmed Abuznaid at the Palestine Center in Washington, DC where he addresses the Intersectionality of the Palestinian liberation movement with Black Lives Matter. It has become clear that Palestinians and Black Americans face the same kind of struggles, thus joining together gives a bit of promise.

Once again we have a presentation that included visuals that you will not be able to see, but the rich narrative allows its use for a radio audience.

But first:

We are all aware of the Zionist campaign throughout the country to pressure colleges and universities to sanction professors who dare to teach any courses that study the colonization of Palestine by Israel. The professors, their courses, and all who support their academic freedom to teach are labeled “anti-Semitic”. This campaign is endemic across the country … well funded by pro-Zionist organizations and individuals who aim to silence anyone who dares take up the Palestinian narrative. Such a campaign has hit Tufts University. Its target is Professor Tom Abowd, who teaches a course called “Colonizing Palestine”. Abowd is a scholar, and author who wrote the book “Colonial Jerusalem - The Spatial Construction of Identity and Difference in a City of Myth, 1948–2012."

Tufts University is trying to terminate its five-year contract with Prof. Abowd now, after its first year, yielding to pressure from the same old Zionist pressure groups and wealthy alumni. This presents a serious academic freedom issue, similar to hundreds of others across the United States. We hope to have Tom Abowd back on this show in the near future to talk about the all too familiar smear campaign now being waged at Tufts.

Takes on the World: Jeff Blankfort:News/Op:Khashoggi, MBS, Israel Freaking Out

Date Uploaded: 2018-10-17 13:49:33.0
Today, I begin with recalling Mohammad bin Salman's triumphal visit to the US in April where he met and was photographed with Bill Gates, Bill Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Jeff Bezos, James Mattis, and Christiane Lagarde of the World Bank and how I said on my program at the time, “Never has American hypocrisy been so shamelessly displayed.”

I note the widespread disgust in Congress over the disappearance and likely killing of Khashoggi compared to the relative indifference of the killing of thousands of Yeminis on bin Salman's orders.

I mention, regarding Pompeo's chummy trip to meet bin Salman and discuss the Khashoggi case, that his first as when appointed CIA chief was to visit and embrace the Saudis.

I then bring up the forthcoming “Davos in the Desert” investors conference which I had not heard of and mention the names of the international media that had pulled out as sponsors.

I then quote a Ha'aretz headline and Israeli political spokespeople on how the Khashoggi killing is a setback for Israel and that the US-Saudi alliance must be maintained and note the US press has made no mention of the Israeli reaction.

I then quote the Israel Lobby's House Gentile, Prof. Walter Russell Mead, writing in the WSJ how the “horror” of what happened to Khashoggi must not be allowed to damage US-KSA relations.

I then report on Sheldon Adelson's record contributions to Republicans and suggest that his record as an Israel Firster disqualifies him, as a foreign agent from participating in US elections.
