Ray Hanania talks about how he got into journalism and column writing, and his view on the Middle East, Palestine and Israel.
Hanania explains about how when he finished active duty military service during the Vietnam War with the U.S. Air Force the FBI initiated an investigation into his background and activities and how that influenced his life to change direction from wanting to be a doctor to wanting to work in journalism.
Hanania talks about the challenges facing Arabs in America and the need to "tell their story" and to also understand and use strategic communications to empower themselves and to bring peace and justice to Palestine and Israel.
An opponent of the use of violence, Hananis supports the Two-State Solution and views the real challenge facing Palestinians and Israelis as one involving moderates versus extremists.

Some of the issues we discussed:
Let’s start with President Trump … do you think Trump is the problem? Your mistaken. We are the problem. Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and what did we do?
What we always do. Yell, stamp our feet and yell again. In other words, we have done nothing! Worse is that the Arab World has done nothing. They are protesting publicly against Trump’s actions … but behind the scenes are making nice with Israel’s rightwing government of Benjamin Netanyahu
Ohio is about to pass another racist, anti-Arab law prohibiting Americans from speaking out against Israel’s racism and apartheid policies … it will be the 12th State …
And hey you Chaldeans … I know you don’t consider yourself Arab … but guess what … most American look at you and see Arab … they can’t tell the difference between Arabs and Chaldeans … maybe inside the Chaldean community … and I am a big champion of Chaldeans and Chaldean rights … but it doesn’t do anyone any good if we fight with each other … so whether you consider yourself Arab or not, if Americans think you are Arab, believe me, YOU ARE ARAB …
Syria is a mess … not because of Trump but because the US under Obama stopped helping to fight against the Assad regime … they want us to think it’s about refugees … is that what Arabs are, just refugees? So they are fighting over whether we should or shouldn’t accept Syrian refugees … we should but the real issue is HOW DO WE STOP THE CREATION OF REFUGEES by Syria’s dictator Bashar al Assad
HOW TO FIGHT BACK:
1 - Don't focus on the Consequences of problems alone. Address and correct the problem itself.
2 - Unite as a community
3 - Understand politics, it’s not 100 percent
4 - Tell our story
5 - Fight back … not violence, speaking out
6 - Support Arab American Media and challenge the racism and bigotry in the mainstream American new smedia
7 - Emotion and anger is not a strategy. Use effective strategic communications to make a difference.
8 - Recognize, acknowledge mistakes and failures … and then correct the mistakes and failures
Apple Computers lied to the world. In 1984, Apple Computer and Steve Jobs claimed that they were freeing us from "Big Brother."
But in fact, Apple Computer is trying to become Big Brother.
They ruined our iPhones with a sinister "Big Brother" IOS upgrade to force iPhone users to abandon their iPhones to force us to buy their new, higher priced iPhone 8 and iPhone X.
But we won't allow it and we'll throw the sledgehammer back in their silocon diode faces.
The Force is with us!

Podcast on Chicagoland and Cook County Politics by Ray Hanania
Cook County Board President Tony Preckwinkle and former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg must think the people of Chicagoland's suburbs are stupid. It's the reason why Preckwinkle's oppressive tace on soda pop and sweetened drinks was so easily repealed.
A rebellion led by Cook County Board Commissioner Sean Morrison ignited a rebellion among suburban taxpayers and voters, that successful pressured the board to reverse itself. The soda tax imposed one cent tax on every ounce in a drink. That was 20 cents in additional taxes on top of the existing 9 to 10 percent sales tax on pop on a typical 20 ounce bottle of pop.
The soda tax war demonstrates Preckwinkle's poor leadership. She is not a very effective government official and the repeal exposes how easily she can be ousted if challenged by someone with a little basic knowledge of fairness, economic sense and management skills.
