  •  I'll try it again sometime, then. (0+ / 0-)

    It was some local people they had on, and it wasn't necessarily related to Israel.  It was at a time when Jewish relations with pretty much every other ethnic group in NYC were at an all-time low.

    I'm pretty much where you are about Israel.  Brother Noam has a way of saying things in the most offensive way possible, but it is very difficult to argue with his critiques.

    If I wanted to shut up, do what I'm told, and like it, I'd be a Republican!

      way of saying things in the most offensive way possible,...".  I find him easier to understand by reading the text after hearing him.  But that is not what you meant.  May I ask, what kind of librarian?  Do you ever read (or look at online) Phyllis Bennis?  It took me awhile to get used to her.  She can be googled or is on ISP-DC, I think, is the website of the International Policy Institute.  

      On the other issue about Jews and other ethnic groups:I've had my arguments with remarks made by a caller that may not have been challenged by a host.  I write letters, a lot.  I nag a lot about disability,too.

      I love WBAI altho there are many shows that I do not.  Look at the schedule, www.wbai.org.  

      Still fairly new on DK, I encountered someone saying he or she was a Jew and same person made outrageous comments about very religious in re studying, using welfare to study talmud/torah and not learning useful skills for work.  I asked for sources about welfare.  It went on:everyone knows kind of thing and if others in the US knew. And "not like us"(other Jews). That bothers me.   But I keep reading DK.  Any suggestions on how to deal with people who are outrageous on DK?

    •  MadLibrarian:there's a librarian cohost on WBAI, (0+ / 0-)

      "Building Bridges" (a show about labor and unions) is cohosted by Ken Nash, a librarian and Mimi Rosenberg Esq.  on Monday nights at 7pm ET www.wbai.org  The show is wonderful, local, national and international.  Dennis Kucinich was interviewed about two Mondays ago.  The show is both archived on WBAI and if you google the name of the show, they have their own website.  Ken Nash is a real librarian and a union rep. for librarians, I do recall.  Mimi Rosenberg has an outstanding record as a Legal Aid (or related firm) lawyer.  She also does a Wednesday morning segment on WBAI's "WakeUpCall", around 7AM, I think, called "In Brief", discussing relevant legal issues.  Ken Nash coproduces that,too.
