What if the Arizona shooter had been a Muslim?

What if accused Arizona shooter Jared Loughner had been a Muslim? Host Lisa Loving speaks with Sara Robinson, senior fellow at the Campaign for America's Future? The shooting in Arizona is the result of twenty years of conservative media propagating violent rhetoric against liberal Americans. This is what domestic terrorism looks like, and we would be much faster to call it that if the shooter had been a Muslim.

The Deaths of Innocents: What Really Drives 'Jihad?'

Categories:
program date: 
Wed, 09/14/2011

Hosted by Lisa Loving 

In this week of analyzing the 9/11 attacks, why so little talk about the deaths of innocent people in Muslim countries? Our guest this morning is Gareth Porter, investigative journalist and historian specializing in U.S. national security policy who just wrote the piece "Ignoring Post-9/11 Deaths of Innocents."

He wrote: "In the commentary on the tenth anniversary of 9/11, the news and infotainment media predictably framed the discussion by the question of how successful the CIA and the military have been in destroying al Qaeda." That article is at www.consortiumnews.com.
AP is reporting today: "Taliban insurgents fired rocket-propelled grenades and assault rifles at the U.S. Embassy, NATO headquarters and other buildings in the heart of the Afghan capital Tuesday."
"Absent from the torrent of opinion and analysis was any mention of how the U.S. military occupation of Muslim lands and wars which continue to kill Muslim civilians fuel jihadist sentiment that will keep the threat of terrorism high for many years to come."
At Monday night's Republican candidate debate, Congressman Ron Paul said, "There's a difference between military spending and defense spending. I'm tired of all the militarism we're involved in. ... I agree, we're in alot of danger but most of the danger comes from a lack of wisdom in our foreign policy. ... We're under grave threat because we're occupying so many countries. ... What would we do if another country -- say China -- did to us what we do to all those countries over there? ..."

Hosted by Lisa Loving

The WILPF is working to draw attention to release of the film, The Whistleblower, this weekend at your downtown metroplex. Members will be leading discussions of the issues after the film this weekend. We're joined by WILPF members Lucinda Tate and Georgia Pinkel.

This film, which opens Friday, chronicles the true story of Kathryn Bolkovac (played by Rachel Weisz), an American woman who brought to light the sexual atrocities being perpetrated in Bosnia with the complicity of U.N. and U.S. security contractors.  WILPF International Secretary General Madeleine Rees (portrayed in the film by Vanessa Redgrave) was at that time head of the Women’s Rights and Gender Unit for the U.N. Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.  She played an integral part in the effort to expose trafficking. WILPF Portland members will be on hand after te film to answer questions and distribute information about United Nations Resolution 1325, a 10-year-old promise that women would be treated as agents of peace and reconciliation, not just as victims of war and violence.
