Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - May 18, 2005

Join Malihe and Khalil for this week's Voices of the Middle East and North Africa special marathon program, commemorating the 57th anniversary of the Nakba or the catastrophe of 1948 which resulted in expulsion of more than 700,000 Palestinians from Historic Palestine, massacres of civilians, and the razing to the ground of hundreds of Palestinian villages.. UC Berkeley Professor Beshara Doumani will talk to noted Palestinian scholar and leading sociologist, Salim Tamari. Salim Tamari is the director of the Institute of Jerusalem Studies in Jerusalem ( and Professor of Sociology at Birzeit University, specializing in urban, rural, and political sociology. He has edited Jerusalem 1948: The Arab Neighborhoods and their Fate in the War, a book that provides the reconstruction of the process of displacement and expulsion of Arab Palestinians while accounting for the fate of Arab Palestinians who lost not only their property and homes but also a whole world that exemplified Jerusalem and Palestine before 1948.

Also on this week’s program, the music of Marcel Khalife, the prominent Lebanese composer and oud player, from his recently released DVD titled The Voyageur.
