World Weekly with Gideon Rachman
  • Palestine, Turkey, Hong Kong Sep 22, 2011 - 6:22 pm
  • In this week’s podcast: As president Mahmoud Abbas presses his argument for Palestinian statehood at the UN - we ask former editor of the Jerusalem Post, David Horovitz and head of the Palestinian government media centre, Ghassan Khatib, what the people on the streets of Israel and Palestine really think about the prospect; then we talk about an activist Turkish foreign policy which sees Turkey facing confrontation on many borders; and finally, rising inflation and soaring property prices in Hong Kong open up the gap in living standards between the rich and poor.

    Presented by Gideon Rachman with Dan Dombey in Istanbul and David Pilling in Hong Kong - interviewed by Serena Tarling.

    Produced by LJ Filotrani
