  • Peace Activism in Israel and in the U.S.

    Today is the 50th anniversary of the founding of the state of Israel. We’ll take a look at the American Jewish establishment and its role it has played in determining Middle East policy. Israel is the recipient of the largest amount of American aid; Congress plans to up military aid to Israel by 25 percent.

  • Israel at 50–Jewish-American and Palestinian-American Views

    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.
