Ray Hanania’s The Arab street Podcast

Israel’s elections, and challenges facing Ilhan Amr and Rashida Tlaib

Israel's elections, and challenges facing Ilhan Amr and Rashida Tlaib

04-19-19 WNZK AM 690 Radio podcast

The Arab Street Radio discussion hosted by Ray Hanania for Friday, April 19, 2019, broadcast on WNZK AM 690 radio live in Detroit.

Guests include Ali Younes, a reporter with Aljazeera English and the Intercept, and later on the show with Adel Mozip who was appointed to the Dearborn School district board of trustees.

Younes and Hanania discuss the Israeli elections and why Arab Israelis boycotted the elections. Was it smart to do? About 50 percent of Arabs in Israel actually voted and in boycotting did the rest help empower Benjamin Netanyahu.

Younes and Hanania also discuss Congresswomen Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, and the challenges they face. Should Omar allow herself to be so heavily defined as a Muslim and shouldn't she fight to project herself as an American like everyone else in Congress. Were her words on the Sept. 11 terrorism flippant when she appeared at CAIR in March? And is Rashida Tlaib taking her job seriously? She represents a district that is about 75 percent African American and she barely defeated Brenda Jones the President of the Detroit City Council. Jones only lost because the African American vote was divided between four Black candidates allowing Rashida to win with less than 900 votes over Jones. Can Rashida win the election in August 2020?

Adel Mozip joins the discussion and helps us understand the Arab community in Detroit. Are they cohesive or are they divided.

S1 Ep10: The Mueller Reporter, media lies & bias against Trump

The Mueller Report, biased media & Trump April 18, 2019, Season 1, Episode 10

Ray Hanania on Politics analyzes the media bias in the coverage of the release of the Report on Alleged Collusion with Russian by Donald Trump prior to and after his election as President. The Mueller Report was completed after a staggering 22-month long investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller that resulted in a finding that there is no evidence to support the allegations that have been made against the President.

Podcast host Ray Hanania discusses the real problem and how national mainstream American news media bias is empowering President Trump and ensuring his re-election in 2020.

Israeli Elections and Arab Heritage month on Arab Radio in Detroit

Welcome to THE ARAB STREET Radio & Podcast broadcast from Chicago through 690 AM WNZK Radio in Detroit Michigan … It's Friday, April 12, 2018 ... and we are live on Radio in Detroit at WNZK AM 690.

This is one of two podcasts that I produce, this focused on Middle East issues. (I also host Ray Hanania On Politics Podcast which addresses mainstream issues. Look them both up on iTunes, Spotify or go to the website at RayHananiaOnPolitics.com for more info.)

This morning on The Arab Street Radio we are talking about the aftermath of the Israeli elections and the victory of rightwing fanatic, again, Benjamin Netanyahu. But we focus on the apathy of the Arab Israeli voters who boycotted the election and we discuss how they could have brought about change had they voted, but did not. In 2015 they elected 13 Arabs to the Knesset, out of 120 total Knesset seats. This time, they only elected 10 because of divisions and emotional reaction to anti-Arab provocations. If they voted to their potential of 20 percent of the population, they could elect 24 or 25 Arabs to the Knesset.

Can you imagine the influence they would have? Clearly, the oppressed Arabs in Israel can't. … We also talk about Arab American Heritage month which is now a national holiday celebrated in April by some 15 to 19 states, including Illinois where I live in Chicagoland.

And we give a shoutout to Warren and Amal David for coordinating this drive to make Arab American Heritage Month in April a national holiday. Through their efforts, so many states have gotten behind this campaign and it builds pride. Check them out at ArabAmerica.com.

THE ARAB STREET Radio & Podcast is a part of the US Arab Radio Network hosted by Laila Alhusini … in an effort to energize and empower Arab Americans to stand up for their rights … for more information go to my website at www.Hanania.com Our show is available afterward on podcast on iTunes or by visiting the website www.TheArabStreet.org.

Richard Silverstein on Israel, Palestine Omar, AIPAC & peace

Richard Silverstein on Israel, Palestine Omar, AIPAC & peace, March 25, 2019

This is the Ray Hanania The Arab Street Podcast, Middle East and Mainstream March 25, 2019.

Our guest online with us is Richard Silverstein, a longtime Jewish American progressive. Richard and I talk about the AIPAC Conference in Washington D.C. this week, the absurdity of calling Minnesota Congresswoman Ihlan Omar "anti-Semitic" for criticizing congressmen who put Israel's interests above American interests, and criticizing Israel PAC stranglehold on American politics. Richard's website is RichardSilverstein.com for more information and links to his Op-Ed writings and interviews.

You can get more information on this podcast at TheArabStreet.org and on my personal website where all my columns and podcasts are archived at Hanania.com. Also check out my new podcast Ray Hanania on Politics which looks at political issues and news in America, nationally, regionally and locally in Chicagoland at RayHananiaOnPolitics.com All of Ray Hanania's podcast shows are available on iTunes.

We discuss AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, PAC contributions to American Congress members and U.S. Senators and the influence the money buys, the weaponizing of anti-Semitism to silence critics of Israel's rightwing government policies, Congresswoman Ihlan Omar, the recent missile strike against Israel, Israel's use of violence to influence election results, and the power of Arab Israeli voters, and the power of the news media. Why doesn't an Arab country or Arab Americans buy an American newspaper like the Washington Post and force it to be objective when it comes to discussions about the Middle East, Israel and Palestine? 

Richard Silverstein also discussions his ongoing battles with Twitter over his use of words they feel should be censored.

The truth about the failed Robert Mueller probe

George Papadopoulos: former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, was arrested in July 2017 and pleaded guilty in October 2017 to making false statements to the FBI. He got a 14-day sentence.

Paul Manafort: Trump’s former campaign chair, was indicted on a total of 25 different counts by Mueller’s team, related mainly to his past work for Ukrainian politicians and his finances.

Rick Gates: a former Trump campaign aide and Manafort’s longtime junior business partner, was indicted on similar charges to Manafort.

Michael Flynn: Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty in December 2017 to making false statements to the FBI.

Michael Cohen: In August 2018, Trump’s former lawyer pleaded guilty to 8 counts — tax and bank charges, related to his finances and taxi business, and campaign finance violations — related to hush money payments to women who alleged affairs with Donald Trump,

Roger Stone: In January 2019, Mueller indicted longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone on 7 counts. He accused Stone of lying to the House Intelligence Committee about his efforts to get in touch with WikiLeaks during the campaign, and tampering with a witness who could have debunked his story.

Illinois Taxes, Mosque Massacres, Israeli election chicanery

Illinois Taxes, Mosque Massacres, Israeli election chicanery

Podcast Illinois Taxation, Mosque Massacre in New Zealand and Israel, and Israel's election chicanery, March 24, 2019

This is Ray Hanania's Podcast, The Middle East & Mainstream Podcast, which explores every issue under the sun, from mainstream to the Middle East, politics, everyday life, society and more with hard-hitting opinions and insight and even humor. 

In this episode of Ray Hanania's Podcast, Ray explains talks about his columns published this week in the three main syndication carriers. First is his mainstream column published in the Southwest News Newspaper Group of eight newspapers in Chicagoland. This column focuses on how Illinois is the 49thworst state when it comes to taxation, and how Gov. J.B. Pritzker is making a serious mistake by trying to address the state’s financial troubles by increasing taxes. The cause of Illinois’ problems are the excessive pensions given to reward political patronage, not hard-earned career work. The way to address the pension problem is through pension reform, not through increasing taxes.

The Middle East portion of the podcast addresses two topics, the first in Middle East Monitor online, the London website, Hanania writes about how the New Zealand massacre of 50 Muslims at two mosques in Christchurch reminds us of the very first terrorist attack against a mosque that took place by an American in Hebron on Feb. 25, 1994, just over 25 years ago. The terrorist, Dr. Baruch Goldstein, was from Chicago and had dual citizenship both Israeli and American. Goldstein was serving in the Israeli military, not in the American military, an issue of “dual loyalty” that Minnesota Congresswoman Ihlan Omar raised in her criticism of biased pro-Israel support. Goldstein killed 50 Muslims who were praying in the Ibrahimi Mosque and injured more than 125 others.

The second Middle East column is published in the esteemed Arab News in Saudi Arabia and speaks to the efforts b Israel’s rightwing Apartheid government to undermine the voting rights on non-Jews in Israel. It speaks to Israel’s parliamentary system and how it is constructed to undermine the rights of Christian and Muslim voters in Israel.

Ray Hanania has two podcasts now, one called Ray Hanania’s Middle East & Mainstream podcast, and my new one called “Ray Hanania on Politics” … both podcasts are available for download from iTunes and many other podcast systems. I’ll be shifting from Podbean to do exclusive podcasting for the “Ray Hanania on Politics” podcast.

Toni Preckwinkle for Chicago Mayor over Lori Lightfoot — Ray Hanania

I endorse Toni Preckwinkle for Chicago Mayor over Lori Lightfoot

Former Chicago City Hall reporter Ray Hanania endorses Toni Preckwinkle for Mayor of Chicago over Lori Lightfoot in the April 2, 2019 Chicago Mayoral election and he explains why in this podcast.

This is Ray Hanania's Podcast, Slice of Life, which explores every issue under the sun, from mainstream to the Middle East, politics, everyday life, society and more with hard hitting opinions and insight and even humor.

Hanania has been a supporter and a critic of Preckwinkle's policies but explains that politics isn't about who is great. It is about a personal consensus with candidates and a relative comparison of candidates. Who is better and who is worse.

Larry David’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm” Stole my Life 3-16-19

Larry David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" Stole my Life

March 3, 2019. By Ray Hanania

Some people in society define themselves based on the role models they admire. Tom Hanks. Amal Clooney. Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton. Brad Pitt. Adam Sandler. Meryl Streep.

I can say with absolute certainty that my role model, the person I most identify with and see so many parallels is Larry David, the TV and Hollywood comedian who is the creator of the hit comedy series “Seinfeld,” and the even hipper HBO sitcom “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

There is no way I can curb my enthusiasm about Larry David and the cast of spectacular actors and actresses on “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Ray Hanania's podcast includes broadcasts of his radio shows in Detroit on WNZK AM 690 and his frequent podcast audio commentaries published here and on iTunes.

In this Podcast commentary, Ray Hanania explains the popularity and cult of comedian Larry David and his hit HBO series Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro in a Nutshell 03-15-19

Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro in a Nutshell 03-15-19

Ray Hanania's podcast includes broadcasts of his radio shows in Detroit on WNZK AM 690 and his podcast audio commentaries.

In this Podcast commentary, Ray Hanania explains the problem with Tucker Carlson, the FOX News host, and Judge Jeanine Pirro, the racist FOX TV host. Both have made derogatory comments about Arabs and Muslims, in defense of Israel, of course.

Carlson is in a war with Media Matters for America, a leftwing media monitoring opinion group that trashes all conservatives. They monitor rightwing shows and then showcase the worst of those shows to strengthen their edge over their conservative rivals.

Podcast_iTunes_Logo_Chi_City_Hall_1985.jpg

The important issue for Arabs and Muslims to understand is that neither the Left nor the Right, the Democrats nor the Republicans really care about the issues that they throw at each other. They don’t care about racism against Muslims or Arabs. What they care about is the politics of using racism against Arabs and Muslims as a weapon to use against their rivals in this Right versus Left political war. The Republicans are using Arabs and Muslims and so are the Democrats.

In researching Carlson, a Media Matters for American monitor discovered some old audio tapes of Carlson on the shock jock radio show Buba the Love Sponge – a truly racist program – in which Carlson called all Iraqis “semi-illiterate monkeys.”

Now, you don’t call people “monkeys.” And the Left is jumping all over the comment using it to pressure Carlson off of TV by targeting his advertisers and some of his advertisers are abandoning his show. 

But don’t think they care about Iraqis. Democrats, the Left are as bad about Arabs and Muslims as are Republicans and the Rights. They hate us.

But, if Carlson should apologize, Arabs and Muslims should accept the apology. If Carlson can step out from the center of this demonization war in which racism and misogyny are weaponized to assault their political rivals, we should accept that apology. But in the heat of this war, Carlson is doubling down and refusing to apologize to the Left. 

Don’t apologize to the Left. Apologize to the Iraqis and to Arabs and Muslims. As a Christian Arab, we accept apologies that are sincere and genuine.

Arab Radio: Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro, New Zealand Mosque Massacres

Arab Radio: Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro, New Zealand Mosque Massacres

Arab Radio March 15, 2019. Live radio in Detroit on WNZK AM 690

Good morning everyone… It's Friday, March 15, 2019 … I’m Ray Hanania … and you’re listening to THE ARAB STREETRadio & Podcast broadcast from Detroit, Michigan through 690 AM WNZK Radio …

 … we’re taking your calls at 248-557-3300

Lots of topics this morning … first my columns in the Arab News newspaper in Saudi Arabia about Israel’s April 9 elections, Netanyahu is stoking the flames of racism to boost up his voter support, banning Arab Israeli parties and attacking Israel's Arab citizens  …  and in Middle East Monitor in London where I profile US Arab Radio host Laila Alhusini who is building an Arab American Media Empire. We explore Laila's background and her work to strengthen the Arab Voice in America through her growing media empire.

We’ll also be talking about issues in the news including Tucker Carlson who is in a battle with Media Monitors of America where a researcher there dug up information from an interview Carlson did back in 2008 on the shock jock radio show of Bubba the Love Sponge in which Carlson called all Iraqis -- Christian, Muslim, Arab, Chaldean -- “semi-illiterate monkeys” ... we have reached out to Carlson to talk to him. Arabs are forgiving people and we accept apologies (even if a bunch of fanatics in Palos Township refuse to accept the apology of Sharon Brannigan for making some insensitive comments about Middle Eastern people several years ago during a posting about Immigration concerns on her Facebook Page. Extremists don't accept apologies. Good people accept apologies.

We’ll also be talking about the racist comments against Minnesota Congresswoman Ihlan Omar by FOX News anchor Jeanine Ferris Pirro who is a Lebanese American Phalangist racist who claimed on FOX News that Omar is trying to bring Sharia Law to America because she wears the Hijab. Pirro also called Omar anti-Semitic because Omar brought up legitimate issues involving dual loyalty by supporters of Israel who put Israel's interest above the interests of America, and because Omar also criticizes the Israeli PACs that are buying congressional votes with millions in PAC donations. 

And, we’ll also talk about the tragic terrorist violence against two mosques in New Zealand where 49 worshipers were murdered by at least one terrorist gunman who is now in custody.

03-11-19 Ray Hanania Podcast, Middle East &Mainstream: Omar, Israel, Suburbs versus Chicago

03-11-19 Ray Hanania Podcast, Middle East &Mainstream: Omar, Israel, Suburbs versus Chicago

This is Ray Hanania's Weekly Podcast -- Mainstream and Middle East -- which talks about his columns and writings from the past week, touching on several issues that impact your daily life … Recorded Monday March 11, 2019

In this week's podcast, Ray Hanania discusses his Mainstream and Middle East columns in the Regional News, the Des Plaines Valley News, the Southwest News-Herald, the Reporter Newspapers, and SuburbanChicagoland.com, and also in the Arab News in Saudi Arabia and Middle East Monitor online in London. The discussion summarizes the columns that are published in the mainstream and Middle East newspapers and also posted online at www.Hanania.com where you can read them.

The Mainstream topics include how Chicago's politicians are trying to force the suburbs to pay for the city's wasteful government spending and financial shortfalls. The column explores how many of the candidates for Chicago Mayor included platforms calling for the taxation of the suburbs in some form to off-set Chicago's huge deficits.

The Middle East topics address the hypocrisy of the attacks against Minnesota Congresswoman Ihlan Omar by Democrats and Republicans because of her criticism of Israel's government and the pro-Israel PACS (Political Action Committees) that buy influence in Congress through millions of dollars in donations each year. Omar is absolutely correct. Israel's government through its pro-Israel PACs in the United States have the U.S. Congress in a Headlock. They also have a huge influence over the biased anti-Arab mainstream American News Media. Sadly most Americans don't even know the truth about what is happening in the Middle East.

Ray Hanania talks in this podcast about the twisted failed media coverage of the Israeli killings of protestors in the Gaza Strip.

Welcome to THE ARAB STREET Radio & Podcast broadcast from Chicago through WNZK AM 690 Radio in Detroit Michigan … Friday March 8, 2019. Your host is syndicated columnist at the Arab News and Middle East Monitor Ray Hanania.

Our guest this morning is Don Wagner.

Wagner taught 15 years at North Park University, Chicago after serving 10 years as the National Director of the Palestine Human Rights Campaign.

Wagner has written or co-edited 5 books, primarily on Palestinian human rights, Christian Zionism, and Christianity in the Middle East. …

Don Wagner and Ray Hanania discuss the weaponizing of anti-Semitism by critics seeking to silence Minnesota Congresswoman Ihlan Omar and Rashida Tlaib, the struggle for justice in Bil'in in the Israeli Occupied West Bank and activist Iyad Burnat, and the anti-Christian aspects of so-called "Christian Zionism." Christian Zionism is a very unChristian movement that violates the fundamentals of Christianity for extremist political gain.

03-03-19 Ray Hanania Podcast Interview with Bil’in leader Iyad Burnat

This is the Ray Hanania Podcast a weekly overview of all my opinion columns, my radio interviews, and my reports on Middle East topics and on Mainstream American politics.

Ray Hanania’s Podcast (The Arab Street, The Arab Daily News) interviews Iyad Burnat who has since 2005 led Palestinian protests against the Apartheid Wall built by Israel in the Occupied West Bank and Israel’s confiscation of Christian and Muslim lands. Burnat sits down with me to talk about the violence against him and his children by the Israeli soldiers. He details how Israel has manufactured accusations accusing him and his children of engaging in violence.

“The Israelis control everything in our lives except they can’t control our will and our determination for freedom,” Burnat says. “They can’t stop us from telling the world the truth.”

Burnat is in America this week meeting with Palestinian leaders asking them to help him build an educational fund for the children of Bil’in in the Occupied West Bank so they can continue their education.

(Click here to watch the Video interview on Youtube)

Burnat has set up one fund for his son Majd, a soccer player who Israeli snipers intentionally seriously disabled when they shot him in the knee while he was watching Israeli protests with three of his friends.

Support Majd’s Education Fund

Majd Burnat is a 20 year old Palestinian student who is starting his civil engineering education at Iden Univeristy in Istanbul, Turkey.

Majd was born and raised in Bilin, a farming village that has been isolated from its agricultural lands by the illegal apartheid wall in occupied Palestine. Residents of Bilin and activists who visit from around the world gather in a non-violent protest at the apartheid wall every Friday. 

At at the age of 15, Majd joined the weekly demonstration and was met with both tear gas canisters and live bullets intentionally aimed at the crowd by Israeli soldiers. While attempting to flee, he fell victim to live bullets with a shots fired multiple times into his leg.

As a result of this injury, Majd has undergone countless surgeries and still suffers severe pain and limited use of his leg. Despite hardship from a young age, he continues to dream of a better life. He hopes to use his education to better the life of fellow Palestinians by improving the infrastructure of a land demolished by years of unlawful occupation. 

We aim to help him raise 6000 dollars to cover his tuition for this year and 6000 dollars for living expenses. Click below to learn more about Bilin and Majd’s story:

02-08-19 The Arab street Radio: Media Bias Report Part 2

Welcome to THE ARAB STREET Radio & Podcast broadcasting this week from the Watergate in Washington DC through 690 AM WNZK Radio in Detroit Michigan … Friday Feb. 8, 2019 

Our guests this morning are authors Usaid Siddiqui and Owais Zaheer who put together a detailed report on the historic bias of the mainstream American news media against Arabs and Palestinians … We continue a discussion about a new report issued by 416 Labs which has analyzed 50 years of news media coverage of the Palestine, Israel conflict and the Arab World. The study confirms what many people already new, that the American mainstream news media is biased and intentionally skewers information to demonize the Arabs and Palestinians while portraying Israel as the victim. The media also minimizes Israel’s actions to whitewash criticism.

The report is titled: “50 Years of Occupation: A Sentiment and N-Gram Analysis of U.S. Mainstream Media Coverage of the Israeli Occupation of Palestine.” You can visit their website to review the report by clicking here.
