Jesse Sbaih, a congressional candidate running in Nevada's 3rd district in the June 14 Democratic Primary election, joins The Arab Daily News Radio program, Friday April 8 to discuss his candidacy. Sbaih is American Arab and Muslim and he was told by Democratic Senator Harry Reid that he could not win election in Nevada because of his religion. Sbaih immigrated to America with his parents from Jordan when he was a young child. His parents are Palestinian refugees (father from Jerusalem, mother from Hebron). He is one of seven candidates seeking the Democratic Party nomination for Congress in the 3rd District.

Reid is reflecting the reality of the challenges that discrimination against American Arabs and Muslims has created in this country. But Sbaih discusses that issue and others during the 60 minute long interview with radio host Ray Hanania. 

The radio interview is broadcast live on WNZK AM 690 Radio in Detroit and on AM 700 Radio in Washington D.C. and is podcast.

We discuss Sbaih's election candidacy and how his race and religion play into politics. Has he experienced discrimination, but also the support he has received from voters not driven by stereotypes and racism? We also discuss the issues he is addressing and his campaign platform. Additionally, we'll discuss the role of American Arabs and Muslims in the election process. Do we take the system for granted? Do we do enough to participate and vote? Are we respected in the American political system and in American society?

How can we empower our community to be a more effective voice in helping to define the American political process and system.

TheDailyHookah.com and TheArabDailyNews.com present the Arab Radio show with Ray Hanania Friday Feb. 12, 2016.

This weeks topic is who Arab Christians, Chaldeans and Arab Muslims support for President of the United States. Callers discuss who they support and why.
The final vote tally based on the phone calls is Donald Trump 70 percent, Bernie Sanders 20 percent and Ted Cruz 10 percent. Many Arabs vote Republican and believe Donald Trump is the tough leader who can stand up to religious fanaticism and extremism in the Middle East, such as ISIS, Daesh and al-Qaeda, and are upset by the killing of Christians in the Muslim World.
Arabs also do not mind supporting Bernie Sanders who is Jewish and believe he could be more objective in addressing the violence and brutality of the Israeli government of Benjamin Netanyahu, who many believe is a war criminal and should be charged with war crimes for murdering civilians and lying about terrorism. Sanders supports Israel, but he also supports a moderate position including two-states and a State of Palestine.

Ray Hanania hosts a special edition of TheArabDailyNews.com radio show Friday Feb. 5, 2016 at 8 am EST in Detroit (WNZK AM 690) and Washington D.C. (AM 700) on the plight of Syrian refugees and the crisis in Syria.

The Syrian Crisis is really an Arab World crisis in part created by the West to destroy the Arab World, first in Palestine, then Iraq now Syria. Worse is that American Arabs are dysfunctional and a failure at helping their own people, living in one of the most powerful countries int he world and yet so powerless to help their own people. It is shameful at the failure of American Arabs to come together and instead to break up into individual and weak identities such as Christians, Muslims, Shiite, Sunni, Egyptian, Syrian, Jordanian, Lebanese, Palestinian, Iraqi, Yemeni and individual Gulf Arab states. Their weakness and divisions are costing the lives of millions of Arabs in the Middle East in Syria, Iraq and Palestine. And American Arabs should apologize for their failure.
Also, the question is asked which presidential candidate would do the most to help stop the massacre of the Syria refugees and destroy Russia, Daesh and the regime of Bashar al-Assad. Donald Trump? Marco Rubio? Hillary Clinton? Bernie Sanders? Ted Cruz?
Guests include: Daad Mamary, a secondary school teacher of thirty years and Syrian activist from Pennsylvania. She left Syria in 1991; Khalil Hashem, a journalist and founder of "ya Michigan" magazine; Laila AlHusini radio host.

Ray Hanania talks with callers on TheArabDailyNews.com live radio show in Detroit and Washington DC about Syria, Syrian refugees, President Obama's State of the Union Speech, the criticism from Republican South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and the upcoming election. We also talk with Evangelical Christians in the African American community about why they support Israel and have turned their backs on Christians in Bethlehem and Palestine and the Middle East. Friday Jan. 15, 2016 in a special radio broadcast. Visit www.TheArabDailyNews.com for more information or check out our podcasts on iTunes.


Columnist and commentator Ray Hanania joins Bentley "Bawb" Patterson on his weekly radio show on YahalaVoice.com on Wednesday Jan. 13, 2016 to discuss the final State of the Union speech by President Barack Obama, and also the response presented by the Republican Governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley. Hanania and Patterson also discuss the announcement that Al Jazeera America (AJAM) will be closing in April 2016.

The two discuss the failure of AJAM to overcome the anti-Arab and anti-Muslim racism of Americans and the longstanding battle by conservatives and racist haters to prevent the broadcast of any Arab-based news station in America beginning with Al Jazeera Satellite TV, Al Jazeera English and Al Jazeera America. Hanania argues that a part of the failure of AJAM has to do with the failure of the Arab World to recognize the significance of producing journalism content in English and to produce media coverage that conveys the truth of the Arab cause to Americans in English.
Hanania, a freelance feature writer for Al Jazeera English, talks about the challenges of overcoming the racist anti-Arab and anti-Muslim policies of the mainstream American News Media and the failure of Arab World media to hire more American Arabs to produce quality journalism content.
Hanania also challenges the popular notion that somehow Nikki Haley is a positive alternative to the rising Xenophobia of America.s Haley is a Republican Governor from South Carolina who not only criticized Obama but also criticized Donald Trump, conveying a false sense that the Republican Party rejects anti-Arab and ant-Muslim racism. Haley was also described as a minority, being born in India overseas. But Haley is Sikh and Indians have been among the most anti-Arab minority in the West and the most pro-Israel community supporting Israel's oppression and brutality against Palestinian civilians, Palestinian human rights andPalestinian statehood.
Hanania argues that while much of what Trump says is wrong, the truth is that Trump is the more honest of the Republican candidates for President, sarcastically saying that Trump may be a Democratic plant to expose the true face of Republican racism and hatred. He also criticizes Hillary Clinton, arguing that she has become her own worst enemy losing much of the popular support she had over the past 8 years when she challenged Obama in 2008 for the presidency. Hanania sarcastically suggests that Bill Clinton -- the real attraction of supporters of Hillary Clinton (many are supporting Hillary hoping to return to the glory years of President Bill Clinton) should do a "Caitlin Jenner" and become a transgender, "Barbara Clinton" possibly allowing him to sidestep the American law which prevents anyone from serving as president for more than 10 years (or two full terms in office.
