Radio Chicagoland Sunday June 24, 2012 with Ray Hanania, Kheir Fakhreldin  and Nada Tadros. Featuring interviews with Pat Camden, spokesman for the Fraternal Order of Police on the rising street gang problem, and Mayor Rahm Emanuel's failure to address Chicago Police needs. We discuss how to battle street gangs and the need to hire more police in Chicago. Police ranks are down from a high of 13,000 to under 10,000 officers. Also we talk with Matt Sienkiewicz who produced the documentary Live from Bethlehem which focuses on the Maan News Agency, one of the most independent and professional journalism news organizations covering Palestine and Israel. While the Arab and Jewish media have focused on partisan politics, Maan News provides the news straight and objective. www.MaanNews.net. We also discuss the reactions to the presidential elections in Egypt and the winner Mohammed Mursi, defeating the Mubarak era prime minister Ahmed Shafiq whow as favored by the military. Mursi is with the Muslim Brotherhood. Christians have begun expressing anger and disappointment in the election results. We'll see how Democracy survives and whether Egypt will break their peace with Israel. Also, we discuss the Jerry Sandusky conviction and the need to continue to hold Penn State responsible for the culture of exploitation of children by its sports establishment. So many at Penn State were silent knowing how Sandusky was but doing nothing about it to protect their college achievements in sports and football. www.RadioChicagoland.com
