On today’s program I speak with Palestinian-American Noura Erakat about Israel's occupation, Palestinian resistance and also debunk some common talking points used to argue that Israel isn't imposing apartheid.

Then I’m joined by Iraq War veteran and anti-war activist Mike Prysner who talks about a major story he broke about Governor Ron DeSantis's military experiences in GTMO and Iraq.

Noura Erakat (https://twitter.com/4noura) is a human rights attorney and an Associate Professor at Rutgers University, New Brunswick in the Department of Africana Studies and the Program in Criminal Justice. She is an editorial committee member of the Journal for Palestine Studies and a co-Founding Editor of Jadaliyya, an electronic magazine on the Middle East that combines scholarly expertise and local knowledge. She is the author of Justice for Some: Law and in the Question of Palestine (Stanford University Press, 2019). Noura served as Legal Counsel for the Domestic Policy Subcommittee of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee in the House of Representatives from 2007-2009. Noura worked as the Legal Advocacy Coordinator for the Badil Center for Refugee and Residency Rights from 2010-2013.

Mike Prysner joined the Army 3 months before the 9/11 attacks, and in March 2003 was part of the invasion of Iraq. After 12 months in the occupation he became an outspoken opponent of the war, and became known for speeches, protests, and veterans' organizing against US imperialism. Since 2015 he has been the producer & co-writer for Abby Martin's show The Empire Files, and is also the host of Eyes Left, a socialist anti-war military podcast.
