Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - July 19, 2006

The story goes that the great Mahatma Gandhi, when asked what he thought of Western Civilization, once replied: "WESTERN CIVILIZATION? THAT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA!"

Tonight, as we helplessly watch the unfolding genocide of the Arab peoples of Palestine and Lebanon -- not to mention Iraq -- with the so-called international community largely silent and acquiescent, we speak with three esteemed guests about Israel's ongoing bloody massacre in Lebanon: in Beirut, independent Lebanese journalist Bilal El-Amine; in Damascus, Dr. Bassam Haddad, who is Assistant Professor in Political Science at St. Joseph's University; and in Haifa, Dr. Ilan Pappe, who is History Professor at Haifa University.

We also have a musical selection about forced exile and the city of Beirut from legendary Lebanese singer Fairouz, as well as a poem entitled "Broken in Beirut: by Palestinian-American poet Suhair Hammad. Stay tuned!
