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.
