    UNMASKING ZIONISM WITH RICH FORER

    in Politics

    Around the world in the wake of Israel's latest brutal and illegal assault on Gaza, awareness of the pernicius nature of Zionism is building. Conversations have started in the US and Europe that were previously considered unthinkable due to the collective guilt of the world about allowing the conditions that gave rise to the Holocaust. While politicians in the US continue to be effectively captives of AIPAC and the rest of the Israeli lobby, the blatant attempt by Netanyahu to undermine President Obama's foreign policy again by speaking directly to the Israeli loyalists that control Congress have led a few to rebel in a small way.

    A brilliant campaign to target an multibillion dollar Israeli government-controlled shipping company, recent successes in the BDS movement, increasing protests from the US religious community and a general increase in the visibility of American and European oppostion to Israeli belligerence and Zionism itself offers for the first time since the Nakba the prospect that Israel can be compelled to become the democratic state that it purports to be. 

    Former AIPAC member Rich Forer, author of Breakthrough: Transforming Fear into Compassion, A New Perspective on the Israel-Palestine Conflict, joins us to talk about the increasing movmentum of the Palestinian solidarity movement.

    This show will be rebroadcast on February 28 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network.

    Is America a democracy in the truest sense of the word???

    in Politics

    Another Monday...snow on the ground...politics in the air.  America has been called "the greatest example of democracy in the world." One man, one vote!!!  Canadians fashion their government after the people of Great Britain without the monarchy. After all, Canada was once part of Great Britain. Israel, like Canada and Great Britain is a Parliamentarian form of government. When the party in power loses its popularity, the opposing party may call for a "vote of confidence." The result are new elections. However, in the United States, we elect a leader, the President, for a four year term. He or she may serve by the will of the people for  two terms, eight years, at which time new candidates may run for the elected office. American government is an example of the Roman form of democracy or a Republic. Let's get the discussion moving. Call us at 646-595-3275.

    Heidi Boghosian talks about government surveillance, corporate power and public resistance with Robert Scheer. Heidi Boghosian is Executive Director of the National Lawyers Guild. Robert Scheer is Editor-in-Chief of Truthdig.

    "Heidi Boghosian's Spying on Democracy is the answer to the question, 'if you're not doing anything wrong, why should you care if someone's watching you?'" ~ Michael German, Senior Policy Counsel, ACLU and former FBI agent

    Michael German says that "this unrestrained spying is inevitably used to suppress the most essential tools of democracy: the press, political activists, civil rights advocates and conscientious insiders who blow the whistle on corporate malfeasance and government abuse."

    Heidi adds, “If the trend is permitted to continue, we will soon live in a society where nothing is confidential, no information is really secure, and our civil liberties are under constant surveillance and control.”

    ZIONISM, DEMOCRACY AND JUSTICE WITH RICH FORER

    in Politics

    The recent Israeli assault on Gaza has sparked a healthy debate about whether continued unconditional US support of Israeli actions is in the best interests of the US, Israel or Palestine.One of the most important aspects of this closer look Americans are taking at Israel is  a long-overdo look at Zionism itself and whether it is possible to have a democracy in a Jewish state. The answer may determine whether peace is still possible in the Middle East and whether Israel itself can survive if it continues to isolate itself from world opinion.On December 29 our guest was Rich Forer, former AIPAC member and author of Breakthrough: Transforming Fear into Compassion-A New Perspective on the Israel-Palestine Conflict. Forer, who has ultra-Orthodox family living in Israel, recently completed a trip to Gaza and the West Bank.SFPI Radio is the international talk show designed to allow those struggling for social justice around the world to talk to each other about how we can support efforts to promote justice, democracy and peace in every nation.You can subscribe to reminders and descriptions of future shows by hitting the “follow” button on this link.Listeners outside the US call in by Skype by opening a free BlogTalk radio account at the sign in button.

    CELDF AND LOCAL DEMOCRACY WITH KAI HUSCHKE

    in Politics

    Opposition to TPP in the wake of the disatrous consequences of other free trade agreements is beginning to create awareness of the degree to which corporations have come to dominate nations. Less well recognized is how much control corporations have over communities, largely thanks to a neolibreral bias in the interpretation of the Commerce Clause but exacerbated by the Supreme Court's invention of the concept of corporate constitutional "rights" (personhood). 

    Kai Huschke of Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund joins us on this show to discuss what we can do to take back the commons by asserting the inherent sovereignty of communities.

    This show will be rebroadcast on February 28 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio network.

    Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to explain the true costs of corporate control of the US government.
