Counterspin (regular weekly feature of TJR) Available at FAIR's website fair.org/counterspin 2020
The far-right Modi government’s discriminatory ideas around citizenship have been a trigger for the massive demonstrations, but our guest explains that is not the whole story. Also on the show: A lowlight of the recent Democratic debate was when Bernie Sanders was explaining his opposition on environmental grounds to the new US/Mexico/Canada trade deal and the moderator interrupted with, “We’re going to get to climate change, but I’d like to stay on trade”—as if the two weren’t inextricably linked.

Host John Roberts Joseph Massad on Trump's '"Deal Of The Century"
This Week In Palestine (award-winning exclusive weekly feature of TJR) For a description or download of this or any week's edition of T.W.I.P., go to TJR's website truthandjusticeradio.org 2020
Our featured speaker today is Joseph Massad. He discusses Trump's "Deal of the Century: the Final Phase of the Oslo Accords." In summary, here's the "deal": in "exchange" for a devastating corpus of crippling one-sided concessions by the PLO and PA, all remaining Palestinian hopes for a viable future (not to mention equal rights) are simply extinguished forever, thus achieving "peace"! Before Massad's talk, we report on the Israel Lobby's continued efforts to punish or prohibit BDS or Palestine support or even an honest discussion of Israel's deadly oppression of Palestinians, particularly at universities. They continue to succeed in the enactment, temporarily, of blatantly unconstitutional laws with this goal.

Host Jeff Schechman, interviewing Gary Sick Why Iran Is the US’s Go-To Enemy in the Middle East
Available, including full transcript, at WWW's podcast archive whowhatwhy.org/category/podcast/ 2020
Among the issues discussed: why Iran has become the “go-to enemy” for the US in the Middle East; why, unlike other US enemies, Iran has no friends in the US policy establishment; why Vietnam is an ally today and a popular tourist destination while Iran remains a nemesis; why the Iran nuclear deal was actually working; why those who advocate regime change are wrong; why Iran maintains a relationship with the Saudis; and why we should be very afraid of the potential response to the US assassination of General Soleimani.

The real author of this older article appears to be GE Global Research, eager to sell this and other products to federal government agencies. As always, we're supposed to believe that the product will nab "terrorists."
