Prisoners: A Muslim & A Jew
Octorber 3, 2006 Tuesday 3PM CT
This hour on Here on Earth: Radio Without Borders, Jean Feraca and her guest talk about a memoir of an extraordinary relationship forged behind bars between a Muslim and a Jew.
- Jeffrey Goldberg, Washington correspondent for The New Yorker, author of "Prisoners: A Muslim & A Jew Across the Middle East Divide"
- Maureen 10/4/06: "So Zionists are one brother and Arabs are the other in the alleged 'sibling rivalry?' If my brother came to live in my house in need or desire of my sharing and had an agenda unknown to me to bring all his friends here or burned down my livelihood (olive groves) and drive me into another state would I forget we were siblings? Giving a face to the enemy may not be enough if the oppressor is in pursuit of his naked self-interest and if he has the power to enforce it. Unfortunately, no mutual self-interest keeps aggression in control in the oil rich Middle East when the U.S. is behind one 'sibling' for its own self-interest. No Arab took part in the Holocoust. Blood may be thicker than water but not oil."
