Truth Jihad Radio Fri. 6/3/11, 1-3 pm Central, American Freedom Radio (archived here.) Call-in number: (402) 237-2525 or post your questions to my Facebook page.
First hour: Celebrated prosecutor and bestselling author Vincent Bugliosi makes his debut on Truth Jihad Radio! Bugliosi is the author of fourteen books, several of them blockbusters, including Helter Skelter, The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder, and now his latest bestseller Divinity of Doubt: The God Question, which makes a case for agnosticism:
“When I hear theists and atheists pontificating on how they know God does or does not exist, I can only smile at the irrationality, and yes, vanity of the notion,” writes Bugliosi, who – in court or in the pages of his books – has taken on the likes of Charles Manson, O.J. Simpson, Lee Harvey Oswald, and George W. Bush. “Since the depth of a belief should be in proportion to the evidence, no sensible person should be dogmatic about whether there is or is not a God.”
I wonder whether he thinks the first shahada -- "There is no god but God" -- is dogmatic?
Second hour: Live from Beirut, Lebanon: International lawyer Franklin Lamb, author of the new article "Is the Arab Spring spreading to US Congressional staffs?" While allegedly American congress-critters endanger whatever flaccid spines they possess by bending over in postures of grotesque supplication to kiss the the filthy nether-regions of 9/11 mass-murder suspect Netanyahu...their staff members are in revolt!
Along with the staffers' revolt, Franklin Lamb will discuss plans for Naksa Day protests scheduled for this Sunday, June 5th: "Refugees are preparing for a second display of mass civil disobedience on June 5th as part of commemorations of 'Naksa Day'. Palestinian refugees plan to once again gather at Israel’s borders between Syria and Lebanon in a repeat of actions taken on Nakba Day of this year." That is, Palestinian ethnic cleansing victims will attempt to peacefully walk back to claim the land that is rightfully theirs. Will the Zionists murder dozens of them in cold blood, as the did during the recent Nakba Day protests?
Franklin Lamb will also discuss reports of huge numbers of Israelis suddenly applying for European passports, including 100,000 for Germany alone. Has Israeli's "delegitimization" (Netanyahu) brought things to a rats-and-sinking-ships situation? Will the next "Jewish state" be in Germany--which is of course where it should be, if its raison d'être is holocaust compensation?
Franklin Lamb is the author of The Price We Pay: A Quarter-Century of Israel's Use of American Weapons Against Civilians in Lebanon and is doing research in Lebanon for his next book. He was unavailable for our scheduled interview Wednesday due to a power outage, as he explained in today's email:
I am not sure if you learned what happended yesterday in Dahiyeh just after Hassan Nasrallah's speech but our area had an additional blackout. Normally we loose power, internet etc. for 10 hours every day but yesterday enemies of Hezbollah ( so hez beleives!) pulled another one of their 'pranks' during his speech to cut off people from watching.
We just now got power back but my phone line is still not working.
I am very sorry for the inconvenience caused to you and your staff and if you want to reschedule just tell me the time and day.
Again, my apologies for yesterday and best wishes,
