Abrahamic Unity/Disregard

Part one of this week’s radio613 takes a critical look at a recent radio interview with Muslim Canadian Congress founder Tarek Fatah. The interview, featured on CBC’s The Current, explores the thesis in Fatah’s new book “The Jew Is Not My Enemy”. The author claims that his book’s purpose is to challenge anti-Semitism in Muslim communities. Our analysis, however, suggests that Fatah’s unwillingness to acknowledge the realities of Islamophobia strongly discredits Fatah’s work and hinders the work of confronting anti-Semitism and building unity between Jews and Muslims.

Part two of the show features Malcah’s reading of “Goslin Day” by Avram Davidson from Wandering Stars: An Anthology of Jewish Fantasy & Science Fiction.

Music this week from Brother Ali (“Good Lord”) and The Narcicyst (“PHATWA”).
