This Week In Palestine: Miko Peled, the General's son, tells it like it is, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
It is said that converts are the best evangelists. In the case of Israeli author and activist, Miko Peled, that certainly is true. Born to a prominent Israeli military family, his father was a General who was a major figure in both wars against Palestine, in 1948 and 1967, but later in life became a critic of the Israeli state as he became aware of its rampant Zionism and apartheid. His son, Miko, has gone further, and has become a sharp critic of, and major spokesman against Zionist injustice. Today we feature the general’s son, Miko Peled, doing his thing by speaking out at a Sabeel conference. Peled's recent book is "Injustice: The Story of the Holy Land Foundation Five" (2018). In it he catalogs the outrageous criminalization and dismantling of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development, leading to the fascist-style U.S. arrests, sham trials, and jailings of Foundation President Shukri Abu Baker, Chairman Ghassan Elashi, and three important staff members. Please forgive the half-dozen or so mid-word flashes of hiss in this recording. We believe they were caused by flawed wireless mike transmission.

Radio Curious: Richard Dooling – "Is it Safe to Say … ?", Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
Blue Streak: Swearing, Free Speech and Sexual Harassment Certain words, said at the wrong time or place, may get a person into a heap of trouble. The laws surrounding freedom of speech do not permit us, for example, to shout out “fire” in a theater or advocate the immediate and violent overthrow of the government. There are also limits on the time and place where a person can use swear words or language with sexual innuendos or suggestions. Richard Dooling, an attorney and writer living in Nebraska, joined us in June of 1997 to talk about his book, entitled, “Blue Streak: Swearing, Free Speech and Sexual Harassment.” Richard Dooling recommends “Emotional Brain,” by Joseph La Due. Originally Broadcast: June 4, 1997

Class War Battlefield Podcast: Episode 2020.03. The Unasked Question, What is the Governments Role in Society, Segment 1

3 months 2 weeks ago
(This episode was recorded a few weeks before the Iowa Caucuses, it doesn’t contain any refer to them but the content is still very apt). In all the conversations I have heard over Limited Government, Overbearing Government, Libertarianism, NeoConservatism, NeoLiberalism and a variant of other topics, seldom – if ever – have I heard any of the commentators answer the question posed in the title. I have come to believe answering this single question will unleash a force heretofore missing from our political dialogue, the force to rework and realign political ideologies. Such a realignment has happened twice before in this countries history, first in the Post-Reconstruction years and second in the Great Depression. Some argument could be made for the Progressive Era, since much of the corruption prevalent during the Post-Reconstruction years was unraveled during this time period; I decided to reject this argument though, deciding to see that era’s unraveling as becoming hypersonic and burning with social consciousness during the FDR response to the Great Depression. While this thinking colored my commentary, it did not make it into this podcast episode (I thought you might want to know about it anyway). Enjoy!
