First hour: “Democratic elections in the Middle East: why the Islamists win.” Guest: Lawrence Davidson, Professor of History, West Chester University. “There have now been two democratic elections in the Middle East as a consequence of the Arab Spring. One was in Tunisia in October 2011, and the recent staggered elections of December 2011-January 2012 for a lower house of parliament in Egypt. In both cases Islamist parties did the best.” Why? Professor Davidson cuts through the shallow, biased propaganda of the MSM and offers some plausible explanations.
Second hour: Michael Parenti is one of the world’s top cutting-edge journalists. His new book The Face of Imperialism is a “searing indictment” (Gregory Elich) and “essential to comprehend the powerful tide of hostility that informs the popular revolutions” (James Petras). This is his first appearance on Truth Jihad Radio.
