Counterspin (regular weekly feature of TJR) Available at FAIR's website fair.org/counterspin 2018
Why are Republicans so set on pushing through a candidate opposed by a coalition of Christian churches, as well as thousands of law professors, as well as anyone concerned with sexual assault? And beyond his “temperament,” what ought we know about Kavanaugh’s record as a judge? Also on the show: “Bezos Unbound” (says Forbes magazine): “He’s Built the Most Innovative and Feared Juggernaut of the 21st Century—And Every Industry Is Now Fair Game.” So that’s…good?

On May 18, 1980, the people of Gwangju, South Korea came together for reunification and an end to an era of martial law imposed by U.S.-backed military dictators. Over the course of ten days, they staged mass protests, battled riot police and soldiers, and were met with brutal repression. Together, they successfully drove the military out Gwangju and governed the city together. Their actions changed the course of Korean history.
Host John Roberts Ahmed Abuznaid on intersectionality of Black and Palestinian issues; Tufts University bends to Zionist demands to fire or demote Tom Abowd
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 2018
As Ahmed points out, consciousness of Black/Palestinian intersectionality is not new. It was already there during the formation of Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in 1960. SNCC was punished and starved by Zionist "liberals" for its forthright advocacy on this.
Host Barry Vogel interviewing Dr. Gordon Neufeld Attachments: Peers or family?
Radio Curious (one of TJR's occasional sources) Available at RC's website radiocurious.org 2018
The economic and cultural changes that have occurred in North American society in the past fifty years have resulted in today’s children looking to their peers, instead of their parents, for direction; for a sense of right and wrong; and for values, identity and codes of behavior. This peer orientation works to undermine family cohesion. It interferes with healthy development and fosters a sexualized youth culture in which children lose their individuality and tend to become conformist, desensitized and alienated.

Aida Touman-Sliman is a Palestinian citizen of Israel and current member of the Knesset. To her enormous credit, Aida is a constant thorn in the flesh of the Israeli establishment. She focuses on the details of the recently-passed, Orwellian, "Nation-State" law, which officially establishes apartheid as the law in the ever-expanding “land of Israel.”
