Tuesday, 8/10/10: Israeli dissident writer Israel Shamir

Tuesday, August 10th, 9-10 a.m. Pacific (noon-1 pm Eastern) on http://NoLiesRadio.org, to be archived here a few hours after broadcast...

Israel Shamir is an internationally acclaimed radical spiritual and political thinker, Internet columnist and writer. He is the author of three books, Galilee Flowers, Cabbala of Power and recently published Masters of Discourse available in English, French, German, Spanish, Russian, Arabic, Norwegian, Swedish, Italian, Hungarian etc. His recent article Turkey is the Key offers a visionary proposal for an Eastern Union to balance the EU.

I first met Israel Shamir when he kindly endorsed the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance for 9/11 Truth, then re-encountered him when he unkindly dissed me for dissing Chomsky -- and got lots of responses from readers. (He apparently didn't understand that I had published my email exchanges with Chomsky not because I dislike Chomsky's position on 9/11, but because Chomsky was acting in extremely bad faith in our email dialogue and I saw no other way to call him on it.)

Anyway, I'm looking forward to the conversation with Israel Shamir, one of the most stimulating political writers of our time.

  1. Chomsky doubtless has no opinion about the heliocentric theory of the planets, or evolution. I'm surprised he climbs on airplanes, given the vastness and complexities of the issues and science involved in heavier-than-air flight. What a worm.
