Topics include the upcoming Israeli elections and the question, should Arabs engage and vote more actively or should they adhere to practices of avoiding “normalization?” Also, Hanania and Younes will discuss the American political campaign to silence critics of Israel through legislation banning BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanction). Plus, they will also address issues in the news and take phone calls from radio listeners in Greater Detroit, and online listeners from around the world.
