Fan requested interview of Palestinian activist, award-winning author and all-round badass Anna Baltzer. Topics covered include the conflict in the Middle East, AIPAC and the Israel lobby in the US and whether the media blackout of Palestinian suffering is a conscious act or down to the US public being dissensitised to the situation.Moral of the story: If Jon Stewart heavily censors your interview and you cause the first heckling on the Daily Show you get to come on Citizen Radio!
