 “Women in Coalitions: Challenges and Successes" (part 2 of 2)
     
During last week’s episode of Arab Voices (#1,043), we aired the remarks delivered at a panel discussion titled “Women in Coalitions: Challenges and Successes”. That panel was part of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) 2022 Alex Odeh Memorial Conference and Gala held in October 2022 in California, where they explored the issues that impact the community, while honoring Alex Odeh and celebrating Arab American excellence and achievement. The panel was moderated by Cheryl Faris, and it explored how organizational and individual bonds overlap to effect and influence redistricting designations for voting rights, monitoring the police, and pressuring elected officials toward legislation that ensures effective changes for justice. The speakers on this panel were Buki Domingos, co-founder of San Diego’s Racial Justice Coalition, Jeanine Erikat, Palestinian-Muslim American serving as the Policy Lead at the Partnership for the Advancement of New Americans (PANA), and Tazheen Nizam, Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, CAIR-San Diego.
  
During this episode of Arab Voices (#1,044), we will air the remaining questions and answers that followed the remarks we aired last week at the panel “Women in Coalitions: Challenges and Successes”. The questions addressed voting, empowering communities, engaging elected officials, political education, elevating young women leaders, advice to young women starting in the political world, and the rise in anti-Muslim hate in India.
 
2nd Segment: Ajit Sahi on Hindutva
     
One of the questions and answers addressed in the “Women in Coalitions: Challenges and Successes” panel (previous segment) was on the rise of anti-Muslim hate in India, where nearly 200 million Muslims are facing persecution, illegal arrests, and unlawful demolition of Muslim houses. Many are calling what is happening in India a genocide against Muslims.
 
During this episode of Arab Voices, we will air a speech about Hindutva, an ideology that advocates for Hindu supremacy. That talk was delivered at the ICNA-MAS Convention held in Baltimore, Maryland in May 2022, by Ajit Sahi, Advocacy Director at the Indian American Muslim Council.
 
3rd Segment: Directory of American Muslim Elected Officials
     
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization in the United States, and Jetpac, held a news conference on October 25, 2022, in Washington, D.C., to announce the release of the first national directory of local, state and federal elected Muslim officials and judges in the United States. CAIR and Jetpac’s directory documented 189 elected officials holding local and state office across 30 states. These officials include members of Congress, state legislators, mayors, councilors, school board officials, judiciary members, and law enforcement.

During this episode of Arab Voices, we will air the remarks delivered at that press conference announcing the release of the first national directory of local, state and federal elected Muslim officials and judges in the United States.
 
An updated/final list of 82 local, state legislative, statewide, judicial, and federal American Muslim electoral victories counted in 2022 midterm election, was released by CAIR and Jetpac, and that list is posted here.Arab Voices aims at bringing the truth, facts, and realities to a wide and diverse range of listeners.

Topic: "Lebanon: Turning Crisis Into Recovery"
     
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC), the largest Arab American grassroots civil rights organization in the United States committed to defending the rights of people of Arab descent and promoting their rich cultural heritage, held its 2022 Alex Odeh Memorial Conference and Gala on October 7-8, 2022, in California, where they explored the issues that impact the community while honoring Alex Odeh and celebrating Arab American excellence and achievement.
  
There were great speakers and excellent topics discussed at that conference, and we plan to air some of them on this program. In this episode of Arab Voices (# 1,036), we will air the remarks delivered at the panel titled “Lebanon: Turning Crisis Into Recovery”.
  
At that panel, Dr. Souhail Toubia moderated an examination of the multiple crises facing Lebanon, which included the various paths towards recovery. The panel explored the humanitarian crisis, Lebanese-American aid, the political and social upheaval, as well as economic and recovery options. Dr. Toubia was joined by Sarah M. A. Gualtieri, Associate Professor of American Studies and Ethnicity, History, and Middle East Studies at the University of Southern California, James E. Rauch, Professor of Economics at the University of California, San Diego, and Hassan Essayli, all of whom provided invaluable insight into the unfolding situation in Lebanon.

In 2009 Sarah published her first book, Between Arab and White: Race and Ethnicity in the Early Syrian American Diaspora, which traced how Arabs came to be officially classified as white by the U.S. government, and how different Arab groups interpreted, accepted, and contested this racial classification over the course of the 20th century. Her most recent book, published in 2020, titled Arab Routes: Pathways to Syrian California, traces the stories of Syrian, Lebanese and Palestinian migrants in Southern California, which has won the Arab American Book Award and the Alixa Naff Prize in Migration Studies.

1st Segment: New Investigation Report on the Extrajudicial Killing of Shireen Abu Akleh
     
On November 3, 2022, in commemoration of the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists, Al-Haq and Forensic Architecture announced the joint submission of forensic evidence to the International Criminal Court (ICC) based on their investigation of the Extrajudicial Killing of Shireen Abu Akleh, Palestinian-American Journalist who was shot and murdered in May 2022 by the Israeli Occupation Forces. Their investigation reveals new evidence of the circumstances of Shireen’s targeted killing, and their findings establish that the report on the incident published by the Israeli occupation forces is false and deliberately misleading. This investigation by Al-Haq and Forensic Architecture is the first to employ a precise digital reconstruction of the incident and has been able to conclusively support both new and existing claims about the targeting of Shireen Abu Akleh by drawing upon new evidence from a range of sources, including previously unseen footage, unpublished autopsy documents, and original testimonies.
 
In this episode of Arab Voices, we will air some of the information released in this new investigation report.
  
2nd Segment: Professor Rashid Khalidi's Lecture on the Balfour Declaration and the Impact it has had on the Palestinian People (Part 1 of 2)
     
This month, November 2022, marks the 105th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration, issued by the British government, and laid the foundation for the establishment of a Jewish-Zionist state at the expense of the indigenous Palestinian population, promising the land of Palestine to the Zionist movement.
  
In November 2017, the United Nations Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People organized a lecture on the Balfour Declaration and the impact it has had on the Palestinian people. The lecture was delivered at the United Nations by Professor Rashid Khalidi, the Edward Said Professor of Modern Arab Studies at Columbia University and director of the Middle East Institute of Columbia’s School of International and Public Affairs.

Human Rights Groups: States Should Act to Protect Human Rights in Palestine, and Dismantle Israel’s Apartheid
    
In August 2021, Apartheid Israel labeled six Palestinian organizations as “terrorist" organizations”, and in 2022, Israeli forces stormed the offices of the Palestinian civil rights organizations, including the offices of Al-Haq, Addameer, Bisan Center for Research and Development, Defense for Children International-Palestine, Union of Agricultural Work Committees, Union of Palestinian Women Committees, and the Health Workers Committees. The Israeli occupation forces ransacked the offices, stole documents and equipment from them, and welded their doors shut in an attempt to shut them down and prevent them from doing any work.
 
On September 28, 2022, and in response to the alarming escalation in the repression of Palestinian civil organizations, the International Federation for Human Rights, Amnesty International, and Human Rights Watch gathered as a delegation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory to voice their support for Palestinian civil society and fight against the abusive and prolonged Israeli occupation, annexation, impunity, and apartheid.
 
In this episode of Arab Voices (# 1029), we will air the remarks delivered at that gathering in Ramallah, occupied Palestine, in support of the Palestinian civil society organizations, and to stand by them in the struggle against the Israeli occupation.
 
We will air the remarks of Souhayr Belhassen, President of the International Federation for Human Rights, Alexis Deswaef, Vice President for the International Federation for Human Rights, and a Human Rights Lawyer, Nathalie Godard, Amnesty International’s France Director of Campaigns, Sari Bashi, Human Rights Watch’s Program Director, and Shawan Jabarin, Al-Haq's General Director. We will also air some of the questions and answers that followed their remarks.

PACC Gala Remarks by Dr. Noura Erakat, Mazin Alkhadraa, and Mohammed Nabulsi
     
In this episode of Arab Voices (# 1,026), we will air some of the remarks delivered at the 10th Annual Palestinian American Cultural Center’s Gala held in Houston, Texas on September 10, 2022, under the theme Reclaim, Return, Rebuild. We will air the remarks of the keynote speaker, Dr. Noura Erakat, author, human rights attorney, and associate professor at Rutgers University, as well as the remarks of Mazin Alkhadraa, President of the Palestinian American Cultural Center (PACC) speaking about the organization, its vision, activities, and future endeavors, including the efforts to create a physical Palestinian Center in Houston, and Mohammed Nabulsi, PACC Director of Advocacy & Education, speaking about the Mahmoud Darwish Scholarship and the upcoming Houston Palestinian Festival (Nov. 5-6, 2022).
  
The gala was very successful and well organized and had hundreds of attendees. During the gala, PACC honored Dr. Farouk Shami as a great Palestinian philanthropist and supporter of PACC over the years.
   
In addition to the remarkable speakers, the gala featured professional Dabke and Dance by Folkoholic Dance Theatre, and special music played on the Oud and Qanun by the talented brothers Muhammad and Hamzah Saadah. There was also artwork displayed by Hisam Nabulsi, a Palestinian-American artist and educator (through his artwork, Nabusli explores themes of movement, belonging, rhythm, authenticity, family, motherhood, and the struggle against oppression). There was also a photo gallery with incredible pictures and powerful Photo Essays by Hanan Awad, a Palestinian-American street photographer, whose photos have been exhibited around the world (Hanan's photos document the tragedy of the physical and cultural forced displacement of the Palestinians and narrate the story of Palestinian resilience & resistance against the colonialist occupation of Palestine). Fay Darzeh had a collection of traditional embroideries, decorations, antiques, and full traditional Palestinian clothing on display at the gala, and Mustafa Alatbash, a Palestinian Artist from Gaza, had handcrafted art on display that draws inspiration from the traditional architecture and heritage found in the historic cities and villages of his home country.Arab Voices aims at bringing the truth, facts, and realities to a wide and diverse range of listeners.
