Radio Baladi July 20, 2012 with Ray Hanania WNZK AM 690 radio, 8-9 AM Eastern (EST) www.RadioBaladi.com.
On the eve of Ramadan, we discuss the religious attacks by Tea Party leader Michele Bachmann against a Muslim staffer with Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Many Republican leaders like John McCain have come out and criticized Bachmann for singling out Huma Abedin, Clinton's logntime aide, because she is Muslim. Bachmann has charged that Abedin's relatives are tied to the Muslim Brotherhood. Ironically, Abedin's husband is disgraced former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner, who before being forced to resign from office in June 2011 one year ago because of lewd conduct. Weiner was one of the most vicious anti-Arab and anti-Palestinian members of the US Congress. Is there a difference when it comes to justice in palestine between non-Arab Muslims and Arab Muslims? How could a Muslim marry someone so viciously anti-Arab and anti-Palestinian. The incident reminds us of the vicious attack directed at Mazen Asbahi, also by rightwing members of the Tea Party and Congress. We also discuss the battle in Syria and the impending demise of Syrian Dictator Bashar al-Assad, and also the hypocrisy that signles out and demonizes Christians in the Arab and Muslim World with callers. Guests include columnist Ali Younes.
