Flashpoints – June 21, 2006

Commemorating World Refugee Day, we spend the entire hour looking at the unraveling situation in Palestine; Israel kills three children yesterday in a missile strike in the Jebaliya refugee camp, the most populated area on the planet, and today, Israeli warplanes launch a strike against a home, killing a mother and wounding 13 children as they sit down to dinner; also, Palestinian youth dancers on a US tour to educate Americans about their lives; sounds from an energetic protest against the Israeli occupation yesterday in Berkeley; we hear from Palestinian refugee youth on visiting their ancestral villages; and the Knight Report.
