AIPAC and the presidency; UC Regents debate anti-zionism

Yousef MunayyerAIPAC holds its quadrennial candidates’ parade in the nation’s capital: Hillary Clinton denounces Donald Trump as disloyal to Israel; Trump announces he’ll blow up the Iran nuclear deal and move the US embassy to Jerusalem, and the only Jewish candidate given an invitation turns it down – we’ll run through it all with Youssef Munayyer. Then: The UC regents are poised to hold a vote on a measure that would declare “anti-Zionism” a form of discrimination that “has no place” on campus – we hold a debate.

Guests:

  • Yousef Munayyer, Executive Director of the US Campaign to End the Occupation
  • Tammi Rossman-Benjamin, co-founder of AMCHA Initiative, which has been campaigning for the UC regents to describe anti-zionism as a form of discrimination
  • Lisa Rofel, Professor of Anthropology at UC Santa Cruz opposed to the proposed UC Regents policy on intolerance
  • Elizabeth Stuart, staff writer, Phoenix New Times
