Join Malihe and Khalil for this week’s program, during which we will hear the second part of a groundbreaking debate on the influence of the Zionist lobby on the U.S. policy in Israel-Palestine between the two contrasting points of view of Jeff Blankfort, a journalist and long time activist, and Professor Stephen Zunes. Stephen Zunes is a Professor of Politics and Chair of the Peace and Justice Studies program at the University of San Francisco. Later in the program, we will hear an interview with Persis Karim and Taraneh Hemami about "Cross Connections", an important exhibit on the Iranian Diaspora currently on display at the California College for the Arts. For more information about the exhibit, please visit www.cca.edu/center.
