Domestic Violence crosses all ethnic, racial, and religious lines
Muslims are often stereotyped as a people who oppress their women and who follow a religion that condones domestic violence. Tune into radio Tahrir tomorrow as they speak to Robina Niaz of Turning Point-NY, a non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the needs of Muslim women and children through crisis intervention, counseling, advocacy, and education.
Topics: How domestic violence is manifested among Muslims in the USA, the myths, the facts, and what we can do and need to do. How does the handling of high profile international Muslim domestic violence cases affects our ability to speak openly about the isssue?
Tune into wbai, 7pm this Tuesday night to 99.5fm.
If you’re not in the tri-state area you can listen to the show on http://www.wbai.org
I was floored. Thanks, Tahir, for sending it.
“After revealing detailed information about the movement of Israeli troops, a Fox News crew has been shot at on live television”
I was even further floored by the comments at the end by the newscasters.
News anchor 1: “: ‘bad guys shoot at anything’
News anchor 2: ‘but it is israel’
News anchor 3: ‘but we dont know for sure who is shooting at them. the other guys there are trying to protect themselves’
Unilateral Support…*sigh* … baffling
