Secretary of State Colin Powell arrives in Jerusalem tonight, where he will push to arrange a cease-fire between the Israelis and Palestinians and steer them into negotiations that he hopes will lead to a Palestinian state. Powell says he will try to persuade Sharon to withdraw his troops from the West Bank as soon as possible.

But outside the US State department today, Black Voices for Peace and the Tikkun organization have called a non-violent civil disobedience to demand that the US support an international force to separate the two sides and provide protection to both sides. They say US power is essential to prevent Israel from further invading the Palestinian territories. We are joined now by two of the organizers, Rabbi Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun magazine, and African-American scholar, activist and theologian Cornell West.Guests:

  • Rabbi Michael Lerner, Editor of Tikkun Magazine, a Jewish publication, and author of ??The Politics of Meaning and ??Spirit Matters.
  • Cornel West, professor of African-American studies and philosophy of religion at Harvard University and author of the best-selling book, ??Race Matters.
  • Lower Third, scholar, activist and theologian.
