Our JRC Israel/Palestine Study Tour was featured today on the Chicago Public Radio program, “Worldview.” I was interviewed along with trip participants Marge Frank and Michael Deheeger for an extensive and quite wide-ranging conversation about our experiences.
The first half of the program featured an powerful interview with Israeli Palestinian solidarity activist Joseph Dana, whose important work I’ve cited on this blog on several occasions. All told, a pretty important hour of radio.

I listened from noon on, and almost turned it off because it didn’t have “our” trip. However, it did get fascinating, and made me very proud to belong to JRC — also better informed . None of my trips to Israel ever made me aware that there are thousands of people living and making their way in small villages. This itself was enlightenment. Thanks.
Thank you all, Brant, Marge and Michael for speaking out so bravely for peace and justice in the Middle East.
what a transformational interview. Thanks for your courage and witness.
