Next we present our editorial segment ‘Filibusted,’ which is focusing this month on the complex relationship between Kurdish independence and the United States.

This month on War News Radio, “Neighbors.” We collect a wide variety of voices on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. First we hear from Aladdin Attari, a 25-year old Palestinian-Jordanian engineer residing in Saudi Arabia, on his perspective on the recent Gaza violence. Next, we explore how the exclusion of women on both sides from cease-fire negotiations reveals a broader obstacle to post-conflict society. Then, we hear from a young fiction writer from Palestine who grew up witness to the vicious cycle of violence in Gaza. After, we present our editorial segment “Filibusted.” Finally, we look to the Swarthmore community to explore the ability to talk about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. All that and so much more – but first, a roundup of this week’s news. Keep listening and stay tuned for more stories on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a future show.
