Ray Hanania’s Podcast: Mainstream & Middle East

05-17-13 Radio Baladi Newseum Syria Google

Radio Baladi with Ray Hanania and Ali Younes on WNZK AM 690 Radio Friday May 17, 2013 www.RadioBaladi.com. Topics include the new campaign by Google to censor Arab writers online by targeting and shutting down their blogs. Hundreds of blogs by American Arabs and Arabs in the Middle East have been closed, claiming to be "spam sites."The truth maybe that Google recognize Palestine as a state a few weeks back and designated the West Bank as Palestine and that caused an uproar in the pro-Israel hate community. Google maybe trying to appease the Israeli extremists and fanatics by targeting the hate groups, rather than reversing themselves and calling Palestine Ïsrael"as the pro-Israeli haters are demanding.

Also, they discuss the situation in Jordan with the rise of Syrian refugees fleeing the conflict in Syria and oppression of Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad whose military has targeted civilians. The conflict has created an opportunity for terrorists like al-Qaeda to infiltrate and engage the conflict, also. The Syria conflict has divided the Arab Community and the Arab World.

Finally, we also talk about the shameful conduct of the Newseum, the Journalism Museum in Washington DC, which this week caved to pro-Israel hate activists. Last week, the Newseum announced it was recognizing as "Fallen Heroes" 88 journalists who were killed in conflict zones, including two Palestinian journalist working for the Hams-owned TV station al-Quds. The journalists, Mahmoud AlKumi and Hussam (Hossam) Salama, were driving in their car which was marked as "TV" on the roof -- standard practice for war zone journalists. They had just left covering a story at al-Shifaa hospital in Central Gaza where scores of Palestinian civilians were being treated who were attacked by Israeli military and settlers by missiles and bombs. The Israeli military IDF fired two missiles at the car killing both journalists. Israel claims all Palestinians are terrorists and therefore can be killed no matter their jobs, profession or even age.
