Crossing the Line interviews journalist Jonathan Cook

Podcast, The Electronic Intifada, 31 March 2008

"This week on Crossing the Line: According to much of the international media, Israeli Deputy Defense Minister Matan Vilnai was apparently "misunderstood" when he said that Gaza faced a "shoah," the Hebrew word for "holocaust." But was his comment really misunderstood? Host Naji Ali speaks with Nazareth-based journalist Jonathan Cook about Vilnai's remarks and the Israeli government's longer-term strategy for Palestinians in the occupied territories.......

Crossing the Line's host, Naji Ali, is an independent journalist currently living in San Francisco. Ali's South African roots and desire for social change are the reason for his strong solidarity with the Palestinian people. In 1990 Ali was arrested in South Africa where he was detained and tortured for nearly two years by the South African secret police. Ali also lived and worked in the Old City of Hebron in the occupied West Bank.

*Naji Ali was formerly known as Christopher Brown
