Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - December 7, 2005

On the last day of the month-long Egyptian parliamentary elections, History Professor Beshara Doumani will have a conversation with New York University Professor Khaled Fahmy, a leading historian of modern Egypt, and a close observer of the contemporary Egyptian political scene. The Egyptian government under long-time ruler Hosni Mobarak, a key ally of the United States, who recently engineered his fifth straight six-year term, has outlawed the largest opposition party, the Muslim Brotherhood and arrested hundreds of its supporters. The government has also been criticized for beating up monitors and journalists. On tonight’s show, we will hear why these elections are important and what is at stake for Egypt and the region.

Also, on the occasion of 27th anniversary of Harvey Milk's assassination, we welcome two leading members of QUIT, (Queers Undermining Israeli Terrorism,) Deej Gold and Daniel Ward, and discuss with them the strategies and tactics of street theater and economic divestment in the service of Palestinian liberation as well as the important subject of mutual solidarity among oppressed groups and movements.
