Reports on Gaza, Palestinians in Israel;

Arab Nationalism and the legacy of George Habash

This week’s Radio Intifada will focus on Palestinians continuing struggle for justice in Gaza and the political implications of the Gazan “prison break,” as well as the united Palestinian and Jewish Israeli support from inside Israel to lift the siege. We will also discuss the call for a General Strike by Palestinian Israelis in response to a recent decision exonerating the Israeli police who killed 13 Palestinians in the Galilee in 2000 and end with a retrospective of George Habash.
