Understanding Israel Palestine

Citizens for Justice in the Middle East provided our inspiration for this show. For twenty years CJME has advocated for a fair and even-handed U.S. foreign policy.  CJME believes an even-handed policy should recognize the rights of both Palestinians and Israelis.  An even-handed policy should work for a political solution promoting those rights.  Thus, CJME’s mission has been to educate people about the injustices created by the ongoing occupation of the Palestinian territories.

This show extends that mission. For anyone confused about the current impasse, we offer historical information that helps explain it.  For anyone who has been hearing only a one-sided narrative that lacks balance and context, we offer a balanced narrative.

Accordingly, we broadcast interviews with journalists, scholars, policy experts and activists who provide perspectives from both sides.  In contrast to headline news that focus on the what but not the why, our programs clarify underlying issues.  The programs reveal the counter-productive role the United States has played over the years in supporting one side over the other.

Public debate about the oppression of Palestinians continues to be stifled. For this reason, we offer these programs as a resource for those seeking truthful, uncensored information about relations between Israel, Palestine and the United States.  Furthermore, we hope these programs get people to listen, learn, and do their own research into what is and has been taking place in Israel Palestine.
