This Week: Israel Boycott; Tehran Art Exhibit in San Francisco

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

This week on Voices of the Middle East and North Africa, we’ll have a conversation with Ali Abu Nima, co-Founder of Electronic Intifada and activist and Middle East expert Jeff Blankfort, in which they each comment on an interview Voices of the Middle East and North Africa first taped and aired last month with Professor Noam Chomsky of MIT on the subject of the boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign as well as the role of Israeli lobby in influencing US foreign policy when it comes to Israel/Palestine. We invited Prof. Chomsky back for this debate, but he declined.
