Listen Up

Hat tip to Naomi Ragen for bringing to my attention this fascinating radio interview with Salma Abdula, an Israeli born Arab, about her take on the Palestinian/Israeli conflict and Islam in general. Salma lives in the US now, but she gives an insider's look at what the Arabs were told about leaving their homes in 1948, what it is like for Palestinians to show dissent with their government, etc. For anyone harboring any doubts as to the truth about this situation, may I suggest you listen to it. Keep in mind, the host, Laurie Roth, isn't even Jewish.

It's a wonderful interview. Salma is very articulate and - almost incredibly - extremely pro-Israel.

But who is she? A web search fails to find anything about her. Is she - as they say in Australia - 'fair dinkum' (for real)?

Thanks for commenting, georgeaz. And it's a fair question. I think I figured that she was someone who moved to the US and was found by the producers of the show. Perhaps they met her somewhere and struck up a conversation and thought she'd be a great guest? I think that's why you wouldn't necessarily be able to find her on any web searches. I could be wrong but that's my guess.
