The Media and Palestine

October 24, 1997
Story
WATCH FULL SHOW

We are joined today by Palestinian-American journalist Daoud Kuttab. He heads the Institute for Modern Media at Al-Quds University based in Ramallah. He’s been active around many issues in Israel and the occupied West Bank, and has reported extensively for the Pacifica Network News. Democracy Now! listeners may remember Daoud Kuttab from several months ago when an international campaign was launched on his behalf after he was arrested by the Palestinian Authority. He was kept in detention for seven days because he was broadcasting the proceedings of the Palestinian legislature which were then sharply critical of Palestine Authority President Yasir Arafat.

Why don’t we start with the situation today and you’re assessment of what is happening?

  • Daoud Kuttab, the director of the Institute of Modern Media at Al-Quds University and formerly a correspondent for Pacifica Radio.
