04-13-18 Arab Radio: Syria, Hamas, Arab American votes

#Podcast #ArabRadio #Syria #Gaza Ali Younes and Ray Hanania discuss these and other issues during their live radio broadcast from Detroit, Michigan this morning
 
04-13-18 Arab Radio: Syria, Hamas, Arab American votes
With hosts Ray Hanania of the ArabNews.com and Ali Younes of Aljazeera English
 
Yalla! Fight Back Live Radio broadcast on WNZK AM 690 Radio in Detroit on Friday April 13, 2018 at 8 am EST.
 
Hanania and Younes discuss the allegations of Chemical warfare used by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad against civilians in Ghouta, Douma outside of Damascus, and the threats of retaliation by Israel and America against the Syrian tyranny.
 
They also discuss the violence by Israeli IDF snipers targeting and killing Palestinian civilian protesters commemorating Land Day and demands that their rights be acknowledged. Israel has used violence to respond to the protests and distributed propaganda asserting that every Palestinian is a terrorist and must be killed. Dozens of Palestinians have been killed and thousands have been wounded by Israel. Several were shot in the back and evidence shows that Israeli claims of terrorism are exaggerated by Israeli propaganda to justify the killings. No Israelis have been killed or wounded during the weekly Palestinian protests.
 
Hanania and Younes also discuss the role of Arabs in American elections touching on the contest between Congressman Dan Lipinski and challenger Marie Newman.

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

EVENTS Calendar

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

12-11-17 The Bullying of Sharon Brannigan

The bullying of Sharon Brannigan

Sharon Brannigan, a suburban Township politician who made some improper comparisons while arguing about immigration policy has suddenly become the target of the protesters against anti-Muslim, anti-Arab racism.

But in their protests, they have turned into bullies who yell, scream, and disrespect the image of what Arabs are all about. And the protests are being waged in the shadow of a more sinister politicization of racism in a battle by failed Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle to get even with her much more politically adept rivals

10-17-17 Soda Pop war in Cook County explodes with a fizzle

10-17-17 Soda Pop war in Cook County explodes with a fizzle

Podcast on Chicagoland and Cook County Politics by Ray Hanania

http://www.TheDailyHookah.com and http://www.SuburbanChicagoland.com

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.

Ray Hanania's column from the Arab News newspaper published June 15, 2017 asking where is the Palestinian literature version of Leon Uris' novel, Exodus?

06-08-17 Kathy Griffin and the anti-Trump Jihadists

Ray Hanania's column from the Arab News newspaper published June 7, 2017 on the extremism in the mainstream American news media and biased politics against President Donald Trump and how that same hate media has fueled racism against Arabs, Muslims and Palestinians. For more information visit www.TheDailyHookah.com

This column focuses on the hypocrisy of the American left and the biased mainstream American news media which attacks President Trump hypocritically and with distortions, disguising its own role in fueling racism and hatred against Arabs, Muslims, Palestinians and other minorities in America. A recent symbol of this hypocrisy is the outrageous actions of disgusting comedian Kathy Griffin who held up a fake, bloodied severed head of President Trump recently.
