Tucker Carlson, Jeanine Pirro and Apologies on The Arab Street Radio Friday March 15
Sorry folks … this interview has been rescheduled, hopefully for the following Friday March 22. We will post a notice. Daoud is traveling and won’t be able to make the call.
However, tune in to the radio show. We’ll be talking about other issues including the reports that cable TV commentator Tucker Carlson criticized the Iraqi people calling them “semi-illiterate monkeys” in tapes dredged up by his critics from 2008. We’ll also talk about Lebanese American FOX Conservative host Jeanine Pirro who made some insensitive remarks about Ihlan Omar who wears a Hijab. And, we’ll talk about the terrorist attack against two mosques in New Zealand.
