Summary:In this program, Dr. Amireh, currently a member of the English department at George Mason University, talks with Bill Moyers about the hardships of life under Israeli military occupation. "The occupation is not something abstract," she says; "it's something that affects people's lives daily. It's about resources--it's about water, about land, about jobs. That is what the occupation is." Suicide bombings and a two-state solution to the Palestinian/Israeli deadlock are also discussed.
