A Voice in the Wilderness

On September 3, Labor Day, at 4 pmSpeaking of Palestine will debut on the nation’s first bilingual public radio station, KBBF, 89.1 FM. The show will be hosted by members of the North Coast Coalition for Palestine. We are honored to being a part of the KBBF family. Speaking of Palestine will feature news and views concerning Palestine/Israel from facts that respect the Palestinian people. Although not unique, Speaking of Palestine is one of a handful of shows that does this.

US corporate media presents all issues concerning Palestine/Israel from a normative and overwhelmingly pro-Israel perspective. This is the result of over fifty years of deliberate framing by pro-Israeli forces. Challenging these views risks being branded anti-Semitic or a self-hating Jew. This is a death knell for corporate broadcasters and publishers. For a democracy to function, it is necessary for its citizens to be well informed. This is why a show like Speaking of Palestine is so important.

Speaking of Palestine will air from 4 – 5 on the first Monday of every month.

The debut show will feature an extensive interview with Linda Sartor who has recently returned from occupied Palestine. Some of the other shows will focus on the personal stories of the program’s hosts, the basics of the occupation of Palestine, the US role in Israel and the occupation, the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, the Boycott Divestments and Sanctions Movement,Students for Justice in Palestine, the history of the “peace process” including the status of Jerusalem, Zionism and non-Zionist Jews, Bedouins, Gaza and the West Bank. Guest speakers are being invited to join in the discussions. Regular segments are planned on Palestine in the news, myth-busting, basic facts, culture and cuisine. In the future, we hope to present recordings from conferences and protests, live music and feeds from sources such as the Electronic Intifada.

Please listen to Speaking of Palestine from 4-5 on the first Monday of the month at listener-sponsored KBBF, 89.1 FM.
