The FCC has posted notice that net neutrality rules—the ones that keep service providers from favoring websites that give them money, and slowing down your access to websites that don’t pony up—will disappear on June 11. Meanwhile, most media outlets told you that net neutrality already died on April 23. So what's going on and what's to do?

This Week In Palestine (award-winning exclusive weekly feature on 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 2009
In the context of the then-recent damning report by the internationally respected Justice Goldstone, a self-proclaimed Zionist, and the Orwellian response of our so-called leaders in the U.S., we decided to do an in-depth interview with this famed Jewish professor. His then-recent book is Overcoming Zionism: Creating a Single Democratic State in Israel/Palestine (2007). This seems to have gotten him fired from his longtime professorship at Bard College.
