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.

July 7, 2012. The Opinion Makers. In this episode of The Opinion Makers audio podcast, co-hosts Ray Hanania and Ali Younes discuss the death of Palestinian President Yasir Arafat. Was he murdered? The Palestinians are exhuming his body to investigate traces of Polonium 210 which two years later was determined to have been the poison used to murder a former Russian spy. Also, Hanania and Younes discuss the vicious hatred from Israelis including the column by Lenny Ben-David in the Times of Israel, and example of the kind of racist commentary that pagues Israeli discourse.
And, Hanania and Younes discuss the circumstances of the Feb. 2012 death of two-time Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Anthony Shadid. Why isn’t the mainstream American news media exploring charges that the New York Times forced Shadid to go to Syria against his will, and the cause of his death? Is it media bias against American Arabs.
And in the final segment, Hanania and Younes discuss the YouTube video of Jordanian Member of Parliament Mohammed Shawabka who while debating a political activist named Mansour Sayf al-Din Murad during a live Jordanian TV broadcast pulled out a gun. The two were discussing aspects of Jordanian politics including attitudes surrounding the uprising in Syria. Shawabka stood up and began screaming and pointing at Murad, who was sitting opposite him, while the host of the program, Mohammed Habashneh, seated in the center, desperately urged his guests to “calm down.” Shawabka threw his shoe at Murad, causing Murad to stand up and knock over the table and then Shawabka pulled out a silver pistol.
