Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - December 29, 2004

Join Malihe and Khalil for this week's program, during which we will first hear a conversation with recently released Israeli nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu, a Moroccan Jew who was imprisoned for 18 years in Israel, including 11 and a half years in solitary confinement. Among other topics, Mr. Vanunu will address his experience as a Mizrahi (or Arab Jew) in an Israeli society dominated by European Jews.

Later in the program, Iraqi writer and activist Haifa Zangana will read her recent commentary about the status of women in Iraq, titled Quiet, or I'll Call Democracy!. This commentary was first published in the December 22, 2004 edition of the British newspaper The Guardian.

Also, in the program, Iraqi writer and poet Sinan Antoon will read from his poems.
