The Middle East Ballet
John does an extended boralogue with a detailed presentation of the sea change ballet in the U.S.’s Middle East policy, which means Israel is really going to be put on the hot plate.
Then Gilead Ini from CAMERA (www.camera.org) joins the conversation to review former President Jimmy Carter’s new and controversial book, "Palestine: Peace not Apartheid," which can be summed up in one sentence: Palestine good; Israel bad.
In the last hour of the program John offers a snapshot of the current global economic situation, focused on Treasury Secretary Paulson and Fed Chairman Bernanke’s trip to China to stabilize the dollar. Finally we round out with an appearance by Dan Gainor, director of BMI (www.businessandmedia.org), to monitor rising levels of hysteria about global warming and the failure of western countries to pony up the transfer bucks to international bureaucrats.
