In the first segment of the show, I talk with Gershon Baskin, founder of the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information (IPCRI). Baskin spoke recently at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas on the topic “Is Peace in the Middle East Possible?” Founded in Jerusalem in 1988, IPCRI is the only joint Israeli-Palestinian public policy think-tank in the world, and is devoted to developing practical solutions for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
The show was broadcast on Tom Klammer’s Tell Somebody
“Tell Somebody” is a locally-produced weekly public affairs program on the air on KKFI since September 2005. Tell Somebody strives to provide in-depth coverage of international, national and local issues on important issues and viewpoints often ignored or distorted in the corporate media.
