Flashpoints – December 5, 2006

An in-depth conversation with two human rights activists in Beirut about the ongoing civil resistance actions taking place in the city and throughout the country, as Israel and the United States continue to threaten and undermine Hezbollah, and the political situation quickly deteriorates; also, Palestinian resistance fighters survive an apparent assassination attack in northern Gaza, while in the West Bank city of Ramallah, Israeli troops continue their attacks against journalists; we speak with Bay Area activists just back from Cuba, looking at that country under the new Latin American progressive political context; and the Knight Report.
