The Arab street Radio: BDS, Israeli violence, Yemen & US media

12-14-18 The Arab street Radio with Ray Hanania and Ali Younes

THE ARAB STREET Radio & Podcast broadcast from Chicago through 690 AM WNZK Radio in Detroit Michigan … Friday Dec. 14, 2018

Ali Younes, a writer and reporter at Aljazeera English, joins host Ray Hanania, syndicated Op-Ed columnist with the Arab News in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East Monitor in London, to talk about pressing issues including the Israeli-instigated violence in the Occupied West Bank and Occupied East Jerusalem, and the killing many civilians. We discuss how the mainstream American news media empowers Israel to lie about the violence and blame it on the Palestinians while ignoring the violence by the Israeli military and the terrorism of the Israeli settler movement. We also discuss the war in Yemen, and the poor leadership of the Arab World governments and their failure to confront Israeli violence and lies.

In the second half of the show, we discuss the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanction) movement and the assault on it by Israel through its surrogate politicians in the United States. 26 American states have adopted anti-BDS legislation and one state, Illinois is moving to sanction Airbnb for delisting Israeli settlements from its online system of advertising homes and apartments for tourist rental. Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner was booted out of office but has directed the state to sanction Airbnb. The question is what will his successor J.B. Pritzker, an ardent pro-Israel advocate, do? Will he repeal the anti-BDS law which is unconstitutional? Pritzker has appointed many Arab Americans to various boards and commissions and can those Arab American appointees effectively lobby Pritzker to repeal the illegal Illinois anti-BDS law (which violates the U.S. Constitution)? Or, will they ignore the issue.

Yalla! Fight Back is a part of the US Arab Radio Network hosted by Laila Alhusini … in an effort to energize and empower Arab Americans to stand up for their rights … for more information go to my website at www.Hanania.com …

This edition of Yalla! Fight Back Arab radio Aug. 14, 2018 discusses the Arabs of South America and Latin America. There are only 4.5 million Arabs in the United States but there are 32 million Arabs in South America. South America has been more welcoming and supportive of Arab immigrants and Arabs in South America have risen to great business and political heights in Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Argentina, Bolivia. The Arab World ignores the Arabs of America but can they afford to ignore the Arabs of Latin America? I believe we need to do more to explore Arab history in South American countries, and in Central America and even in the Carribean where Arab immigrants have flourished and have great influence.

Yalla! Fight Back is a part of the US Arab Radio Network hosted by Laila Alhusini … in an effort to energize and empower Arab Americans to stand up for their rights … for more information go to my website at www.Hanania.com …

This edition of Yalla! Fight Back Arab radio Aug. 17, 2018 discusses Rashida Tlaib, the Democratic candidate in the 13th Congressional District seat vacated by longtime Congressman John Conyers in the wake of sexual harassment allegations, and Tlaib's wavering views on Israel and Palestine. Has she really changed her views and opposes the Two-State Solution? Did she surrender to extremist bullies? We discuss that issue and also the oppression of the Israeli government and their interrogation of prominent Jewish columnist Peter Beinart. When Beinart was harassed by Israel's secret police, the Shin Bet, it became major news. But when Arabs, Christians and Muslims are harassed daily, it is rarely reported by the biased and racist mainstream American News Media.

This edition of Yalla! Fight Back Arab radio July 20, 2018 features an interview with Dennis Denno a political analyst and pollster who is very familiar with Michigan's election system and many of the candidates. We discuss the race for governor and the leading candidates. We also talk about the candidacy of Arabs, Muslims and Middle East Christians including Chaldeans and the expectancy of voters to support them. Should we just support someone just because they are "Arab" or "Muslim" or "Chaldean" or do we take the bigger picture in mind. A good case is the race for Michigan Governor where there is a candidate who is Arab and Muslim, Abdul El-Sayed, but the question is can he win as the Democrat in a race where a Democrat needs to win to push back against the policies of President Donald Trump?

This edition of Yalla! Fight Back Arab radio June 8, 2018 will focus on the life work of Northwestern University professor and artist Michael Rakowitz to preserve the Iraqi culture that was destroyed by terrorists of the Daesh (Islamic State in the Levant, ISIL, ISIS) which occupied a large segment of Iraqi beginning in June 2014. During its three year terror rampage, Daesh destroyed Arab cultural artifacts and the cultural artifacts of other national groups. Among the items destroyed were historical artifacts from Iraqi history dating back thousands of years including many iconic items from the Iraqi museum.

Rakowitz is an unusual and interesting person. His father is Jewish and his mother is Iraqi and he lives Iraqi culture daily in his personal and professional life. Over the years, Rakowitz has been recreating some of the most iconic of Iraqi cultural images including the Lamassu, an Sumerian, Assyrian, Chaldean and Iraqi protective deity, often depicted as having a human’s head, the body of a bull or a lion, and bird’s wings. In some writings, it is portrayed to represent a female deity.
