Comedy is often that teaspoon of sugar that helps the medicine go down. It can speak truth, it can educate, it can convince while making people laugh, often at themselves. It has enormous power of persuasion. This week we feature two amazing women Comediennes discussing the power of comedy as resistance, as a mechanism for change, as a way to speak truth, perhaps with a little sugar to make that truth go down. Noam Shuster is an Israeli who grew up in a unique village that is equally part Israeli and part Palestinian which shaped her as a resister. Mayoon Zayid is Palestinian/American, who spent her summers in Palestine with her grandparents where she nurtured her strong Palestinian identity. This forum was sponsored by the Foundation for Middle East peace. Foundation President, Laura Friedman, and Rebecca Abou Chedid join the conversation.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly part of Truth and Justice Radio) is an award-winning three-quarter-hour 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. It's a regular part of Truth and Justice Radio, aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, streaming live and archived for two weeks at; TJR's website,, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible by navigating through our playlists. (At this important time, TJR airs occasional 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.
