This edition of Salaam Shalom: Report on Palestine/Israel offers radical perspectives by two Israeli-Jewish scholars and activists, Ilan Pappe and Eyal Weizmann, on the Zionist state—its history, its settler-colonialist ideology, and its construction of a unique variant of Jewish apartheid in the occupied territories.

Ilan Pappe is the director of the Center for Palestine Studies at the University of Exeter in Great Britain and a prominent historian on Israel-Palestine. He will discuss why the paradigm of settler-colonialism, with its logic of elimination, is the appropriate intellectual and political framework for understanding, and resisting, the oppression and dispossession of the Palestinian people.

Eyal Weizmann is the Professor of Spacial and Visual Cultures at Goldsmiths, University of London. He speaks with Tarik Ali about the increasing pressure being applied by Israel on the White House and the European Union to criminalize the international Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign against Israel. He also excavates the politics of separation within Israel and the occupied territories.

This program also offers a short report by journalist Abby Martin of The Empire Files on the occupied city of Hebron in the West Bank, and the racist violence and politics of dispossession perpetrated there against Palestinians by Israeli soldiers and fanatical settlers.
