    On this episode of "By Any Means Necessary" host Eugene Puryear is joined by Ben Norton, journalist with Alternet, to talk about a US Congressional bill that would make supporting the Palestinian-led BDS movement against the state of Israel, the efficacy of the BDS movement, and Radiohead's controversial concert in Tel Aviv on Wednesday night.

    Later in the show Eugene Puryear and Ben Norton talk about the decision for the US to stop providing arms to Syrian rebel forces, the media's warmongering in Syria to spur anti-Russia sentiment, and Congressional efforts to reduce the involvement of the US in Yemen.
