Episode 81: Tell Congress to Support Palestinian Rights

CODEPINK's Medea Benjamin and Marcy Winograd, and Hanieh Jodat-Barnes were joined by four special guests: Huwaida Arraf, co-founder, International Solidarity Movement; Omar Baddar, political analyst & former deputy director, Arab American Institute; Ariel Gold, co-director, CODEPINK; and Estee Chandler, board member, Jewish Voice for Peace. We had an engaging and dynamic discussion of several topics related to the equality and freedom of the Palestinian people. Topics will include the International Criminal Court’s investigation of Israeli war crimes; The Boycott-Divest-Sanction (BDS) movement; the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA)’s definition of anti-Semitism and its threat to free speech; and the Biden administration’s complicity with Israeli apartheid. We asked Biden to reverse two of Trump’s executive orders: Executive Order 13899, adopting the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism as anti-Zionism, and Executive Order 13928, sanctioning those who cooperate with the ICC.
