Next to a series of maps, the ad reads: "4.7 million Palestinians are classified by the U.N as refugees." We will also discuss the "Savage" ads paid for by Pam Gellar's far-right American Freedom Defense Initiative.

Thu, 04/23/2009

This week Hala Gores and William Seaman welcome New York University Professor of Middle Eastern Studies and History, Zachary Lockman, to the program for a discussion of Zionism.  Zionism is broadly understood as the movement supporting the establishment of a homeland for the Jewish people.  In 1975, the United Nations General Assembly passed resolution 3379 declaring that Zionism is a form of racism.  Is Zionism inherently racist?  What role has Zionism played, and what role does it continue to play, in the Palestine-Israel conflict?  Join us this Friday for a discussion of Zionism on ONE LAND, MANY VOICES with our special guest, Professor Zachary Lockman. 
More about our special guest this Friday:

Professor Zachary Lockman:

 

 

My main research and teaching field is the socioeconomic, cultural and political history of the modern Middle East, particularly the Mashriq. Under the influence of the "new social history" and "history from below" movements of the 1960s and 1970s, I did my doctoral dissertation on the emergence and evolution of a working class and labor movement in Egypt from the late nineteenth century until the Second World War; it was published in 1987 in a book co-authored with Joel Beinin. Since then I have sporadically continued to work on Egypt, with a special interest in society, culture and politics in the 1882-1919 period. I have also done a great deal of research on Palestine, manifested (among other things) in a 1989 edited volume on the Intifada and a 1996 book on relations between Arab and Jewish workers and labor movements in Palestine during the British mandate period, and various articles and papers. My most recent book is an introduction to the history and politics of Orientalism and Middle East studies, with particular attention to the study of the Middle East in the United States since 1945 and its intersections with U.S. policy in that region. Along the way I have served as president of the Middle East Studies Association and as a member of the Joint Committee on the Near and Middle East of the Social Science Research Council/American Council of Learned Societies, and as an editor (and currently a contributing editor) of Middle East Report.

Hala Gores is joined in the studio with special guest, attorney Tom Nelson.  Bill Corcoran also joins the conversation by telephone from Washington DC.

Mr. Corcoran is President of American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA) and just returned from a visit to Gaza where he had an opportunity to assess the devastation of Israel's assault on the people of Gaza.  ANERA was incorporated in 1968 to help ease the suffering of Palestinian refugees after the Arab-Israeli War of 1967. It has become one of the largest American non-profits working solely in the Middle East for 40 years. In fiscal year 2008, ANERA delivered more than $50 million worth of donated medicine and medical supplies into Gaza, the West Bank and Lebanon.

Tom Nelson also just returned from Gaza as a member of a National Lawyers Guild delegation of 8 attorneys who went to Gaza to assess the effects of the recent attacks on the Palestinian people, and to determine what, if any, violations of international law occurred and whether U.S. domestic law has been violated as a consequence.

OLMV co-host Will Seaman will return next month.

Reflections: 31 Years After Sabra & Shatila & 20 Years of Oslo

 

 

This month marks the anniversary of two important events in the history of the Palestinian struggle for justice.  It is the 31st anniversary of the massacres at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Beirut during which an estimated 3000 Palestinians lost their lives. It is also the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Oslo Accords between the PLO and Israel.  

One Land Many Voices co-hosts, Zaha Hassan and Ned Rosch will look back to those two events not only to remember what they meant to Palestinians and the world at the time, but also to consider what they mean today in the search for justice and peace. 

The first half of the show will include an interview with Nabil Mohamad, Vice President of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, who was the only one of his family to survive the massacres in Sabra and Shatila. 

In the second half of the show, Dr. Mohammad Shtayyeh, senior negotiator for the Palestinians in the current US sponsored talks between the PLO and Israel, will be joining us from Ramallah.
