Jess and Jamal discuss how Israel for years has been interfering with US elections via surrogates like AIPAC. The Russian election interference scandal pales in comparison to what these Israeli surrogates have been doing for decades to elect people to the Congress who are more loyal to Israel than the US. Jess and Jamal also discuss the release of Ahed Tamimi and her mother from prison, the failed Kushner peace plan in the Middle East and new developments in Syria.
Jess & Jamal discuss Israel’s “nationality bill” which states only Jewish people have the right to self-determination in the State of Israel, declaring Israel a nation-state for the Jewish people and downgrading the status of Arabic from official language to “special status.” Please excuse the poor audio quality caused by technical difficulties.
Jess & Jamal discuss the murder of Palestinian medic Razan al-Najjar in Gaza. Instead of apologizing, Israeli officials claimed that the medic was acting as a human shield for Hamas when she was shot dead by Israeli soldiers in Gaza.
Jess & Jamal interview Dr. Rabab Abdulhadi and Jaime Veve who recently returned from a conference in Palestine. They were part of an international delegation who spent two weeks in the West Bank meeting with educators, students and activists. They shared their experience on Arab Talk.
