What is happening with the Palestine Liberation Organization, the PLO? What is its relationship to the Palestinian Authority? What role does it play in Palestinian governance and politics? Palestinian podcaster Salem Barahmey discusses these questions and more with the PLO’s most visible member, Hanan Ashwari on the eve of her leaving the organization. Why is she leaving? Why now? It is a fascinating discussion. Also discussed: The Zionist lobby continues to exert pressure on American Universities to silence Palestinian voices on campus in violation of the First Amendment and principles of Academic Freedom, to their shame. Now, under pressure from Israel advocates, Butler University in Indiana has decided to shut down a lecture with eminent scholar and activist Angela Davis. Isreal is losing the support of young people on the issue of Palestine. That is why there is such an effort to censor Palestinian activism on campus. We would like to think that Butler would be the last to swing and miss on this issue, but don’t bet the ranch on it.
