Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - "Palestinian soccer players under attack and social justice worker detained in Cairo"

Host Khalil Bendib speaks with Dave Zirin, The Nation's sports editor, about the shooting of two teenage Palestinian soccer players by the Israeli occupation forces as well as a famous Palestinian soccer team in Chile, Club Deportivo Palestino, which also came under attack for printing the map of Palestine on their soccer jerseys. 

Later in the program, Khalil interviews co-founder of the social justice group Code Pink, Medea Benjamin, who was beaten and detained upon arrival in Cairo. She was in transit to a Palestinian solidarity delegation and then to the Palestinian territory of Gaza for a women’s conference.
