Day of Dialogue Video

In the spirit of debate and discussion about which I just recently wrote below is the video from Hofstra University's Day of Dialogue.  You might recall that the panel discussion in which I participated was entitled, "Israel/Palestine and the Blockade."  My remarks begin at the 30 minute mark, but of course only watching my opening salvo would be missing the point of the university's day of dialogue and my recent ruminations about leaving our isolated intellectual bubbles.  The irony of the world wide web and the endless stream of television channels, and of course YouTube channels, is that in terms of intellectual debate it has in some ways made the world smaller and more narrow.  I only seem to have time to watch and read and listen to what already agrees with me.
