Today we feature Palestinian Journalist and author Ali Abunimah in a podcast moderated by Misbah Khan that explores Palestinian identity, specifically Ali Abunimah’s identity as a Palestinian raised in the Diaspora.

But first, from Abunimah's recent Electronic Intifada article: When AOC won an upset primary victory in June 2018, it came as a breath of fresh air for supporters of Palestinian rights. The month before she unseated a senior member of the Democratic Party, she had expressed her solidarity with unarmed Palestinians being gunned down by Israeli snipers as they protested in the besieged Gaza Strip. Her subsequent shift to the right, including her embrace of the Israel lobby and echoing of its propaganda, could be linked to reports that she may mount a primary challenge against Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer. ... None of that would make AOC remarkable, but no one should mistake her for a courageous champion of human rights, especially those of Palestinians. When such a prominent member of the new progressives as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez falls victim to the Israeli lobby and begins to mouth their false narrative, it is more than disappointing, it is devastating.
