Show Details for the week of March 5th, 2012

Posted on Updated on


  • Arizona has been the focal point for immigration-related issues and legislation for some time. Recently, Mexican-American studies course was shut down and many books were banned and removed from classrooms. Bryan Parras and Liana Lopez joined us in the studio to talk about the Librtoraficante Caravan to smuggle banned books back into Arizona
  • Also on the show is Marjorie Cohn. She is Professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law and former president of the National Lawyers Guild, Cohn wrote the piece “Pressure Israel, Not Iran,” which states: “Neocons in Israel and the United States are escalating their rhetoric to prepare us for war with Iran. …Quote: “Security Council Resolution 687, that ended the first Gulf War, requires a weapons-of-mass-destruction-free zone in the Middle East. Israel, which reportedly has an arsenal of 200-300 nuclear weapons, stands in violation of that resolution. Israel refuses to sign the NPT, thus avoiding inspections by the IAEA. As Shibley Telhami and Steven Kull advocate in a recent op-ed in the Times, we should work toward a nuclear weapons-free zone in the Middle East, and that includes Israel. They cite a poll in which 65 percent of Israeli Jews think it would be best if neither Israel nor Iran had the bomb, even if that means Israel giving up its nukes.”
