The Electronic Intifada Weekly Podcast: 3 May, 2012

This week on The Electronic Intifada podcast: Six and a half decades after the expulsion of Palestinians from their land, thousands rally to assert their right of return during the annual March of Return; an update on the ongoing mass hunger strike by Palestinian prisoners inside Israeli jails; new homes for displaced families, yet Israel is still restricting building materials in Gaza; dozens of journalists and activists arrested as the Palestinian Authority cracks down on dissent; Palestinians are banned from seeking a top student post at an Israeli college; 148 professors sign a letter objecting to a New York Times ad comparing Palestine solidarity activism to Nazism, but the newspaper refuses to run it; and news from the global boycott, divestment and sanctions movement with an update on the Methodist Church divestment vote by activist and organizer Anna Baltzer.




I told before to palestianian patriots that ABBAS is a ZIONIST and that's why Palestine is not recognized as an independent Country.
