Nonviolence in the Middle East – Podcast

This week guest Michael Beer, executive director of Nonviolence International joins us to discuss nonviolence movements, past and present, in the middle east and how we can support them. The US government is handing 110 billion dollars worth of arms to Saudi Arabia to “build security and stop terrorism.” We suspect that this money will do nothing of the sort. We coulnter with the question, “What would it look like to pour $110 billion worth of Nonviolence into the Middle East?” Throughout the show we will hear excepts from interviews with Bsher Said, Sumbul Ali-Karamali, Ali Abu Awaad, and Farah Muhsin, discussing topics including Syria, Arab Spring, Jihad, and the use of social media in international nonviolent movements.
