 This Week In Palestine: Solidarity with the Native American community, and the BDS campaign | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:51:00

Activist Salma Abu Ayyash (sitting in for Sherif) tells of attending the annual National Day of Mourning in Plymouth MA during Thanksgiving. All or nearly all of the Native American speakers at that gathering proclaimed their solidarity with the victimized Palestinians. We air an excerpt. The gathering was dedicated to our brother in injustice, Leonard Peltier. One of our Palestinian brothers wrote a poem to honor Leonard Peltier, which was put to song. Salma offers her translation of the poem to English, following which we air a performance of the song. Salma reviews some of the dark history of the genesis of the Israeli takeover and occupation of Palestine, along with its distorted treatment by today's mainstream media. There's a brief discussion of the growth and significance of the ongoing BDS campaign (BDS = boycott, divestment, and sanctions). Finally, to bring us up to date, Salma presents a brief summary of some of the most recent Israeli attacks and incursions on the Palestinian people and the implications for our survival.

 New World Notes 140 - JFK in 1963: Disarmament Crusader | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 01:05:00

30-minute weekly radio program for November 9, 2010. First of 2 parts. In the early 1960s almost the whole of the U.S. "national security state" (Pentagon, spy agencies, National Security Council) very much wanted war with the Soviet Union. We would win this (nuclear) war, they reasoned, losing only 40 million lives, while the Soviet Union would lose perhaps 200 million and be destroyed. The U.S. would emerge as the world's sole superpower. In October 1962, the CIA discovered a Russian-controlled nuclear-capable missile base in Cuba. The war-hawks immediately began braying that we must bomb the base. "Taking out" the base, they "reasoned," would have the additional good effect of starting the war with the Soviet Union that they so much wanted. Only one American of any influence opposed the war-hawks: President John F. Kennedy. As he was on the brink of failing to prevent World War III, he begged for help from his nominal adversary--and secret pen-pal--Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev. Khrushchev very publically dismantled the Soviet bases in Cuba. In a speech of June 10, 1963, Kennedy announced a bold reversal of U.S. policy. He announced military disarmament as desirable, attainable, and henceforth a policy goal of the U.S. Government. And he announced several steps in that direction, to be undertaken immediately, including the negotiation of a Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty. Few Americans have ever heard this amazing story. This installment and the next alternate between JIM DOUGLASS' fascinating telling of the story and the June 10 speech itself--Kennedy's commencement address at American University. PS: Within a year of Kennedy's great speech, the Powers That Be deposed Khrushchev and killed Kennedy.
