Voices of the Middle East and North Africa

Voices of the Middle East and North Africa – Abunimah & Blankfort on Israel; also, A Collective Narrative of Tehran

In tonight's program, Khalil Bendidb will have a conversation with Ali Abunimah, co-Founder of Electronic Intifada, http://electronicintifada.net  and Middle East analyst and activist Jeff Blankfort in which they will each comment on an interview we 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 the U.S. foreign policy with respect to Israel/Palestine.

Later in the program, Shuka Kalantari will talk to Bay Area-based artist Taraneh Hemami about an exhibit she has curated titled “One Day: A Collective Narrative of Tehran,” currently showing at the Intersection for the Arts gallery in San Francisco.
