Host Allen Ruff speaks with Jennifer Loewenstein, a freelance journalist and activist and faculty in Penn State University’s Department of Middle East Studies. Loewenstein has been covering conflicts in the Middle East for approaching thirty years, and her work has appeared in academic journals such as the Journal of Palestine Studies and popular outlets like CounterPunch Magazine and Palestine Chronicle. In the wake of the United States missile strike, and developing strikes from Iraq, the conversation focuses on the chemical attacks in Syria and the international response.
