Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

The founding of the state of Israel gave Jews a homeland but deprived the Palestinians of theirs. We’ll talk to a Jewish American rabbi and a Palestinian-American activist about the impact on their communities and the relations between Israelis and Palestinians. We’ll also talk about their hopes for the future.

Guests:

  • Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun Magazine, a bimonthly Jewish critique of Politics, Culture, and Society; author of ??Jewish Renewal: A Path to Healing and Transformation; and of co-author with Cornel West of ??Jew and Blacks: Let the Healing Begin. He is the rabbi of Beyt Tikkun in San Francisco.
  • Sam Husseini, former media director for the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee.
