Al Jazeera English reporter and editor Ali Younes joins Radio Talkshow Host Ray Hanania on live radio in Greater Detroit to discuss the recent Palestinian Diaspora Conference that was held in Istanbul, Turkey.
Palestinians face 70 years of oppressive occupation and a denial of their rights by Israel since 1948 in Israel and occupied Palestine, and brutality and violence by Israelis including in Occupied Jerusalem. The Israeli military occupation of the West Bank and Occupied Jerusalem will mark 50 years this June 5.
What have Palestinians achieved? How can they move forward? Is the peace process with Israel worth the effort? Why has it failed? What needs to be done? Compromise or demand everything and a return to 1947? Those are issues the Diaspora Palestinians have been discussing as Palestinians remain oppressed and brutalized by Israel’s increasingly extremist and Apartheid government leadership.
Al Jazeera Journalist Younes wrote several reporters on the conference including showcasing the differing levels of diaspora empowerment between the Palestinians in the Middle East and the Palestinians in the West.
The Radio Baladi radio show was broadcast live in Detroit on WNZK AM 690 radio on the US Arab Radio Network (8 am EST until 9 am EST) and is podcast below.
