Some Jewish-Muslim dialogue for Hallowe'en!

Mon.  10/31/12, 3-5 pm Central, American Freedom Radio  (archived here.)
How Jews appear to Muslims

How Muslims appear to Jews

It's almost like we're seeing each other in monster masks.

Muslims, horrified by the Zionist genocide in Palestine, imagine that all Jews regard the goyim in general, and Arabs and Muslims in particular, as sub-human.

Jews, terrorized by Holocaust memories and the "pre-traumatic stress disorder" of envisioning what might some day develop from the growing anti-Zionist backlash, imagine that Arabs and Muslims are the new Nazis.

But rip off the masks, and Jews and Muslims both turn out to be human beings.

Today's Jewish-Muslim dialogue on Truth Jihad Radio may bust a few stereotypes. My first hour guest, Yehuda Littman, is a young Orthodox Jew who happens to be a 9/11 truther...and an incisive critic of the neocon anti-truther smear artist Jonathan Kay. Yehuda aptly observes that the murderous islamophobia unleashed by the 9/11 inside job bears an uncanny resemblance to the anti-Semitism of Nazi Germany. For Yehuda, "never again" means "never again for anybody."

Yehuda's new article Holocaust apologist Jonathan Kay: A Bully Among the Truthers is a 9/11 truth masterpiece!

Second hour guest Nadeem Haque says Islam is not about blind faith - it's about seeking and discovering the truth by setting aside our biases and preconceptions, and using our God-given capacity to reason. From this perspective, the Islamic revelation was not about starting yet another tribe; it is instead a universal reminder to seek the truth that lies behind the illusions of the individual and tribal egos.

Nadeem Haque was born in East Africa in 1960 and then migrated to England and Canada. His early interest in Islam and Philosophy and a resolution to the 'Big Questions' has led him to write seven books which have been published and numerous articles, most of which have appeared in both Muslim and non-Muslim peer reviewed journals. He is also  a Professional Engineer who has worked in several areas of Civil Engineering.

Nadeem has been involved in dawah activities for more than thirty years in the West and was also the co-founder of the King's College Islamic Society in the United Kingdom. He is the grandson of the late Al Hafiz B.A. Masri who has become famous for his works on Ilam and Animal Welfare.

His works range on topics from the unification of physics to macroevolution and also on the Quranic evidence for his views. He has also written three fiction works in the extremely rare genre of Islamic Science fiction. Three of his four works have been published and are: Truth in Time; Search for the Question to the Answers of Life and Escape from Sirius:The Doomsday Protocol. He resides near Toronto.

Today I will interview him on his philosophical science fiction work.

I wonder what Truth Jihad Radio guest Vincent Bugliosi would think of Nadeem's proof of the existence of God?

Sander Hicks reports live from hurricane-battered NYC!

Live broadcast! Monday, October 29th, 6 to 7 pm Central; repeated Tuesday, 11 a.m. to noon Central (9-10 Pacific) on (then archived here a few hours after broadcast). 
Sander Hicks reports from New York City, where he gave a talk this Saturday on The Art of Social Enterprise Creation. Earlier today, Sander narrowly escaped with his car and his life from the rising waters of the Hutchinson River in the Bronx. He describes huge oak trees crashing down on buildings, power lines coming down just a few feet from him, and other fearsome hurricane sights...

Sander writes: "It was great seeing you in Madison. The Slingshot to the Juggernaut book tour was full of experiences of spiritual and political connections with my brothers and sisters in our rambunctious movement. My faith in 911 Truth was actually bolstered seeing the movement strong in places like Daytona Beach and Bloomington. I still intend to write something cumulative about the tour. I did a Zen sesshin last month, and kept a diary of the cleansing experience. Weeping and meditating and getting closer to God - all good..... /// if you can share the event link, please do.... it's Truth Party activism, economics and spiritual creativity in the real world. Abandon fantasy, turn to reality.

London calling! Gilad Atzmon, Ian Henshall on TJ radio

Mon.  10/29/12, 3-5 pm Central, American Freedom Radio  (archived here.)

First hour: Gilad Atzmon, the acclaimed Israeli-born British saxophonist, is one of the world's notable jazz musicians. His new book The Wandering Who? has provoked a mega-storm of praise and outrage, and become an underground best-seller. BG (before Gilad), anyone who suggested that the genocidal excesses of Zionism - and I would include 9/11 in that category - were inexorably linked to certain aspects of Jewish culture, was automatically assumed to be a benighted anti-Semite. Then Gilad Atzmon thoughtfully and passionately opened the door to reasoned discussion of this issue...and the rest is history.

The recent flap over Free Gaza activist Greta Berlin's alleged "anti-Semitic tweet" is just the latest outburst of anti-Gilad hysteria. See my article Mind-Controllers Chant "Anti-Semite" to Prevent ThoughtCrime.

A few days ago, one of the best Jewish pro-Palestine blogs, MondoWeiss, admitted that "a significant part of the community wants to talk about Israeli policy in the context of Jewish history and Jewish identity, and do so in a highly critical manner." But rather than welcoming such a discussion, MondoWeiss banned it! Their new policy silencing any discussion of Jewishness in relation to Palestine ought to be called "The Atzmon Rule." Apparently, a lot of otherwise reasonable people are desperately trying to slam shut the door that Gilad opened. (Note: Philip Weiss turned down an invitation to present his point of view on this.)

Here at Truth Jihad Radio, our mission is to discuss precisely those issues that are so important that the "forces of repression," including the internal censor as well as the external one, are trying to build a wall of silence around them. And although I personally do not believe that the Palestinian genocide is entirely a product of Jewish history and Jewish identity - I think there are plenty of other factors involved, including European settler-colonialism, US imperialism, and the bankster crime cabal - nobody can deny that Gilad Atzmon has hit a raw nerve, kicked a hornet's nest, unlocked a Pandora's short, opened up a critically important field of discussion.

Second hour: Ian Henshall is the author of 9/11 Revealed: The New Evidence, one of the best books on 9/11. He is one of the organizers of the Accountability Democracy Conference opening Saturday, November 10th, in London:
