Ray Hanania talks with callers about the failure of the American Arab community to effectively engage mainstream Americans because of their lack of understanding of strategic communications. Only 15 percent of the Arab community in America is engaged in effective activism, and much of that involves extremist politics that focuses on Middle East issues rather than on American Arab issues.

Broadcast on Friday August 14, 2015 on The Arab Daily News Radio Show (Radio Baladi, US Arab Radio) on 690 AM Radio in Detroit, Michigan, and 700 AM Radio in Washington D.C.

Hanania discusses the recent release of the new animated film "The Prophet" by Salma Hayek, and also touches on presidential politics, Donal Trump, and the process of American election politics during the one hour live radio show.
Hanania also discusses effective strategic communications and his new book PoweR PR: Communications Strategies for Ethnic American Communities which is available by clicking this link here.

The Arab Daily News Radio broadcasts a special episode on live Radio in Detroit on AM 690 and Washington DC on AM 700 radio discussing with callers the terrorist attack on Thursday July 16, 2015 by a Kuwait Muslim whose family immigrated to America after living many years in Jordan. The killer has been identified as Mohammed Youssuf Abdulazeez, 24. (Mohammad, Yousef, Youssef) Abdulazeez attacked two military installations, a recruitment center in Chattanooga, Tennessee and seven miles away a Navy Technical Center where he killed four U.S. Marines. Abdulazeez was killed by military police.

Broadcast on Friday July 17, 2015 live on WNZK AM 690 Radio in Detroit and AM 700 Radio in Washington DC, the hour long show features live call-ins from listeners with host Ray Hanania.
The show is co-sponsored by US Arab Radio and TheArabDailyNews.com.
Issues discussed include the reaction from racist haters, like Pamela Geller, who have blamed all Muslims, and the notion that Muslims, and Arabs, must apologize for the actions of a criminal.
Do Christians apologize when a Christian murders an innocent person? There were more than 433 killings in Chicago last year committed by Christians, and not a word. But when some maniac "claims" to be a Muslim, and murders anyone, he or she is denounced as an Islamic terrorist and all of Islam is disparaged as a violent religion.
That's unChristian like argues radio host Ray Hanania, who is a Christian from Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, and Jerusalem.

Ricky Ben David, News Editor and Videographer for the Times of Israel news website which also features blogs, joins Ray Hanania on his monthly Detroit radio show The Arab Daily News/Radio Baladi to discuss issues in the Palestine-Israel conflict on Friday April 10, 2015.

Ben David, a former Op-Ed editor at the Jerusalem Post where Hanania previously wrote a weekly column, talks about the change of Hagai Amir, the brother of Yigal Amir who murdered Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995 and helped undermine peace and prolonged the death-driven violence for another two decades. Ben David, who interviewed Hagai Amir, said that the murder accomplice who served a prison term for his role in the 1995 assassination, spent much time meeting imprisoned Palestinians and today believes that there should be one state where Jews and non-Jews, Arabs and Israelis, live together in peace.

Ben David also talks about extremism in Israel, the reality of the relationship between the Israeli right and the Christian Evangelical Movement, the re-election of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and how Israelis view, peace Two-States and President Barack Obama.

It's rare that Israelis and Palestinians discuss major issues but the discussion offers an insight into how the conflict can be stopped and how Palestinians and Israelis can achieve peace.

Seth Frantzman, Op-Ed Editor of the Jerusalem Post, engages in a candid conversation analyzing the March 17 Israeli election results, challenges facing Israeli-Palestinian peace, and the reality of the hard right Likud party of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Centrist Zionist Union led by Isaac Herzog and Tzipi Livni. Frantzman points out that most hardcore religious Jews in Israel live in Israel and only a few are involved in the settler movement, which Palestinians and the world declare as illegal. He notes that a difference between the hardright and the centrist Zionists is that the Centrists do want two-states in a large part to separate themselves from the Palestinians and preserve the Jewish State, while the Likud rejects the Two-State Solution and seeks to annex the occupied lands without annexing more Palestinian non-Jews. Frantzman also agrees that the real significant story that was played down in the media was the performance of the Joint Arab List headed by Ayman Odeh which won the 3rd largest number of seats in the Knesset (13) behind the Likud (30) and the Zionist Union (24). Click here for election result details.
