The Palestine Pod

The Palestine Pod

by

The Palestine Pod is a weekly podcast where we break down the latest Palestine-related news providing historical context, light hearted commentary and interviews with the aim of supporting Palestinian liberation, justice, and equality on the ground and in exile.

This week Lara and Michael discuss the latest Israeli elections and the voter suppression that rules in the “fauxonly” democracy in the Middle East: 5 million Palestinians whose lives Israel controls in the occupied West Bank and Gaza cannot vote in these elections at all whereas Palestinians who live within the territory declared Israel in 1948 and are technically allowed to vote have been the target of racist campaign rhetoric by political candidates and are filmed as they vote to deter them from voting. Michael talks voter suppression in the US as well as his shocking experience working on both Bernie Sanders campaigns. Lara comments on the latest move by the US to give 15 million to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza for COVID-19 and expresses frustration with the U.S. policy on Palestine under Democratic administrations. Lara shows how thus far Biden IS Trump on Palestine (not an exaggeration and she has the receipts to prove it). Michael explains to Lara what gefilte fish is.
