Today we present a speech by Syracuse University Professor Osamah F. Khalil, author of the book "America’s Dream Palace: Middle East Expertise and the Rise of the National Security State" (Harvard, 2016).
His speech, sponsored by the Jerusalem Fund, focuses on the role of right-leaning think tanks like the Brookings Institute in driving U.S. policy toward the Middle East. Typically they support militarism, warmaking, and Israel's continuing war crimes, and ignore any pursuit of justice for Palestinians.
This Week In Palestine (a weekly 8am feature of Truth and Justice Radio (TJR)) is an award-winning 45-minute (or more) 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. TJR is aired Sundays 6-10am ET on WZBC 90.3FM, Newton, MA, also streamed live and archived for two weeks at wzbc.org; TJR's modest website, truthandjusticeradio.org, has a link to This Week In Palestine archives back thru 1-6-2008; editions are also accessible at radio4all.net or by navigating through our playlists. TJR sometimes airs Palestine coverage IN ADDITION to that provided by This Week In Palestine. We hope you'll write to us at email@example.com if you rebroadcast our work or have questions or comments.
