Susan Straight, author of the novel, Mecca, which Michael Connelly called "a masterpiece," talks with Barbara DeMarco-Barrett about her new novel and how it came to be. Susan Straight was born in Riverside, CA, and still lives there with her family. She's passionate about home, California, the Santa Ana River, the foothills and the deserts, and has been writing about southern California and the inland area for forty years. From her kitchen window, she can see the hospital where she was born, which her three daughters find kind of hilarious and pathetic; most days, she walks her dog Angel beside the Santa Ana River as she has since childhood, and then past the classrooms at Riverside City College, where she wrote her first short story, at 16, which is also kind of hilarious, but hopeful. She has written about the people of California for her new memoir, In the Country of Women, based on women's stories told for five generations to Straight and her daughters, in driveways and trucks, at parks and funerals. She's published that memoir, eight novels, and two books for children. Her short stories and essays have been published everywhere from The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, and The Guardian to Alta, The Believer, McSweeneys, Zoetrope, Reader's Digest, Real Simple, and Family Circle. She's been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship, the Lannan Prize for Fiction, a California Gold Medal for Fiction, and the Kirsch Award for Lifetime Achievement from the Los Angeles Times Book Prizes. Download audio. (Recorded on July 12, 2022) Music and sound design by Travis Barrett Support the show on Patreon! Barbara DeMarco-Barrett: www.penonfire.com Marrie Stone: www.marriestone.com Travis Barrett: https://travisbarrett.mykajabi.com

Several weeks ago, during several bar and bat mitzvahs being celebrated at the egalitarian section of the Western Wall, about 50 Charedi young men interrupted their services. They blew whistles, screamed at the attendees, and ripped up their prayer books. Videos show them calling the worshipers “Nazis,” “Christians,” “animals,” “shiksas," and “Reform Jews.” In a similar-but-different story, Gil Tamary, a Jewish and Israeli Channel 13 journalist, recently snuck into Mecca, Islam's holiest city, has a total ban on non-Muslims entering the city. Tamary made it clear that he knew he was breaking the law. This event enraged both the government of Saudi Arabia and many Muslims worldwide. Uri and Rivky ask, are these stories as the same? Who are the "good" and “bad” guys, in either story? And ultimately, is it fair, and is it appropriate, to restrict groups of people from religious spaces?

Church History Part 12 The Birth of Islam Today we see a new religion, some would say threat, coming towards Christianity – Islam!  Islam is a religion strictly following one God. The adherents of Islam, Muslims, follow their book, the Koran (the verbatim words of Allah) and the Sunnah (teachings and examples give by Mohammed, the last prophet of God.)  Background In Arabia at the time, the religious background was like this: There was a strong belief held by many people in one supreme God, in the Arabic language - Allah.  There was however some worshipping of other gods & goddesses. Prime in their thinking at the time, was a form of fatalism - that everything that occurred was determined by fate or time. Nothing could be done to change things that were happening.  There was some Jewish and Christian influence but it was largely negated. Mohammed 570-632 Into this comes the main man and founder of Islam – Mohammed. He was born in Mecca in 570. It was while he was seeking solitude within the Arabian Desert, that he claimed to have received messages from God, via the Angel Gabriel. Mohammed claims to have received the whole of the Koran (Moslem Scripture), which was claimed to have always existed in heaven but was now on earth. He was to be the message of Allah! Mohammed was given the task of telling others about Allah and what Allah had said in this book, the Koran. Mohammed preached from the Koran when he returned to Mecca, but was initially rejected by the masses. That was soon to change! Mohammed's message. People were to believe in Allah and live in obedience to him. In particular is this key statement of faith: "I bear witness that there is no god but Allah. I bear witness that Mohammed is the Apostle of God.  There was only one God, Allah. God could not have a Son and God was One. God most certainly was not a Tri-Unity or Trinity as believed by Christians.  Prayer was to be done 5 times daily and always facing towards Mecca.  There was to be generous giving to charity.  There was to be regular periods of fasting. During the lifetime of a follower of Islam, there was to be a pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in their lifetime. Basic beliefs A Muslim is one who lives according to God's will as expressly given in the Koran. Islam is submission to God. Islam accepts parts of Judaism & Christianity quoting extensively from the Old Testament in the Koran. Jesus Christ is accepted as a prophet of God, but not the Son of God. Mohammed is the last and greatest prophet. They do not believe Jesus Christ was crucified and died, but that there was a substitution done for him. They do however broadly accept his miracles and virgin birth. While there are some similarities with Christianity, they miss the whole point of God's revelation to man in Christ & Christ's death for our sins. There is no plan of salvation apart from works. Islam's spread Despite being initially rejected by people, Islam and the message of Mohammed soon spread quickly. Raiding parties from Arabia, captured neighbouring lands and Islam became the religion of these peoples. The Islamists treated their captured people well, therefore Islam grew in acceptance. Within only 12 years, Egypt, Syria and Iraq were occupied by Muslims, quickly spreading to North Africa and Spain. The spread into Europe was checked however at the battle of Tours in 732 when Charles Martel led Christian armies into victorious battle. For more in-depth information and knowledge about Islam, we have a series on this site and you can find that by clicking here!

On the periphery of the Malian city of Gao, close to the banks of the River Niger, sits an extraordinary pyramid-like structure. Standing 17 meters tall, and reportedly constructed with mud and wood shipped in from Mecca, some 7,000 kilometers away, it is known as the Tomb of Askia. And is believed to be the last resting place of Askia Mohamed I a man who ruled one of Africa's largest yet less remembered superstates: The Songhai Empire. In this episode, I detail the key events in the meteoric rise and the spectacular demise of this extraordinary empire. And I talk to an expert, professor Mauro Nobili of the Univ of Illinois. His areas of expertise include Mali, Islam, and Arabic manuscripts in West Africa. His published works include Sultan, Caliph, and renewer of the faith Ahmad Lobbo, the Tārīkh al-fattāsh, and the making of an Islamic state in West Africa.Guest speaker: Prof. Mauro Nobili University of Illinois Urbana ChampaignGuest Bio: I am a historian of pre-colonial and early-colonial West Africa, with a specific interest in the area of the modern Republic of Mali and the town of Timbuktu. My special focus is on Muslim societies of the region and their Arabic manuscript heritage. I conduct research in several collections of Arabic manuscripts from West Africa, stored in public or private libraries in Africa (Mali, Nigeria, Senegal, Niger, Ghana, and Ivory Coast), Europe (Denmark and France), and North America (USA). I have worked and published on topics linked to Arabic calligraphies and script styles, Islamic eschatology, genealogies, and the West African chronicle tradition.  My current project is an original study of the Timbuktu chronicle known as the Tārīkh al-fattāsh. The chronicle's complex genesis and authorship is still shrouded in mystery. Notwithstanding the efforts of several scholars, the major obstacle has been the limited access to the actual manuscripts of the chronicle. My research thus comprises an effort to collect all the available manuscript copies of the Tārīkh al-fattāsh, on the basis of which I am producing an innovative analysis of the text. My study is revealing that the Tārīkh al-fattāsh is a novel chronicle written in the 19th century, and not the effort of three generations of scholars who worked on it starting from the early 16th century and eventually interpolated in the 19th century, as previously advanced by most scholars. This 19th-century Tārīkh al-fattāsh was composed by a substantial rework of a 17th-century anonymous work. The manuscripts available allow for a new, comparative edition of the two texts. My work is re-instating the two works to their historical periods and, by throwing light on the political and ideological motivations that lie under their production, as well as the usage of the chronicle themselves, is contributing to improving our knowledge of the intellectual history of West Africa, from the post-medieval period to the immediate pre-colonial time.Mauro's selected works: Amazon booksThe following music was used for this media project:Music: Heroes Of A Thousand Battles by MusicLFilesFree download: https://filmmusic.io/song/8099-heroes-of-a-thousand-battlesLicense (CC BY 4.0): https://filmmusic.io/standard-licenseArtist website: https://cemmusicproject.wixsite.com/musiclibraryfilesPhoto: The Tomb of Askia  --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/daniel-mainwaring5/message

But does the need for oil detract from human rights concerns? We hear two perspectives on what the trip will achieve from Middle East analyst Sami Hamdi, and US financier Chris Lowe. Countries around the globe are getting used to hotter temperatures. We hear how humans - and penguins - are being forced to adjust. Kully Sandhu, an aviation recruitment specialist, explains why London's Heathrow is among the most difficult airports to travel through right now. It's one of India's biggest cultural exports. But Bollywood fans are staying at home as the industry deals with the rise of streaming. To discuss all these issues and more, Business Matters is joined by two guests from opposite corners of the world: in Malaysia, financial professional Jessica Khine; and Marketplace reporter Andy Uhler in Texas.

 This talk was delivered near the end of the semester.  We had spent three months discussing different religious traditions from a political perspective.  As I told students, political scientists know nothing about miracles.  We deal with people and politics.  I also told students on the first day, and repeated it more than once, that they were not required to accept anything presented in class   All they had to do was understand it well enough to explain it.  Then they could say, I don't believe a word of it.  This talk has a provocative thesis  about the influence of Nestorian Christianity on  Mohammed.  These are not my own ideas.  I borrowed all these insights from reputable scholars.  I also presented various disputes from within Islam itself.  As with Christianity and the dispute over the nature of Christ, there are “official” perspectives but there are also other perspectives that continued to exist under the radar.  My goal is to inform you and to make you think.  Not to convince you of anything. Anecdote:  I had a student who pursued a doctorate and at one point took a class on Islam from a noted scholar.  He asked the professor about the influence of Nestorian Christianity on Mohammed.  The professor said he believed these were true, but when the direction of prayer was changed from facing Jerusalem to facing Mecca, that pattern shifted.   That is logical. Better terms:  I referred once to the close followers of Mohammed as disciples.  A better term is companions.  Also, what Mohammed received from the angel Gabriel/Jibril are better called revelations than prophecies.   Names and termsConstantinePeople of the BookDuophysite MonophysiteNestorian / ArianMutazaliteIbn Rushd / AverooesTaifAli, Abu TalebMecca/ Medina/ TaifI am going to do a separate podcast on the Christian teachings over the Nature of Christ, and the Trinity.  Worth waiting for.

Daily News Brief by TRT World

*) Evacuation calls as Russians advance in Ukraine's Donbass Ukraine has called on civilians to urgently evacuate the Sloviansk city in the Donetsk region as Russian troops press towards it in their campaign to secure the Donbass region. The governor of the Donetsk region said at least two people have been killed and seven others wounded in an attack on a marketplace in Sloviansk. He told Ukrainian media that his "main advice is evacuate!" Sloviansk has been subjected to "massive" Russian bombardment following Russia's seizure of the Luhansk region. *) Senior UK cabinet ministers resign, plunging govt into chaos Two of the United Kingdoms' most senior ministers have resigned in a move that could spell the end of Prime Minister Boris Johnson's leadership after months of scandals. Rishi Sunak resigned as finance minister and Sajid Javid as health secretary. Both said they could no longer tolerate the culture of scandal that has stalked Johnson for months. The resignations followed the allegations that the UK PM failed to come clean about a lawmaker who was appointed to a senior position despite claims of sexual misconduct. *) Palestinian killed during Israeli raid in West Bank A Palestinian man has been killed by Israeli forces during a raid in the occupied West Bank. The Palestinian Health Ministry said 20-year-old Rafiq Riyad Ghannem was shot dead near the northern West Bank city of Jenin. Israel says it conducts military raids due to security risks, but rights groups argue that they have been deployed as a tool to suppress Palestinian resistance. At least 70 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli army fire since the beginning of this year. *) South Korea warns of stern retaliation in case of provocation from North South Korea's President Yoon Suk-yeol has ordered the military to "promptly and sternly" retaliate in case of any North Korean provocation. Yoon called for strong capabilities to deter North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes after presiding over his first meeting with top military commanders. North Korea has this year been conducting missile tests at an unprecedented pace and is believed to be preparing for its seventh nuclear test. *) Muslim pilgrims begin largest Hajj since Covid pandemic The largest Hajj pilgrimage since the pandemic took over the world has kicked off, with hundreds of thousands of worshippers expected to circle Islam's holiest site in Saudi Arabia's Mecca. This year's Hajj will commence, with 1 million fully vaccinated Muslims expected to participate. It is a major break from two years of drastically curtailed numbers due to the pandemic. The pilgrimage consists of a series of religious rites that are completed over five days in Islam's holiest city and its surroundings in western Saudi Arabia.

*) Russia claims Luhansk, Ukraine vows return Russia has gained full control over Ukraine's Luhansk region after capturing the last major city, Lysychansk, following weeks of fierce fighting with Kiev's forces. The Ukrainian army said its soldiers had retreated from the strategic eastern city in order to preserve the lives of Ukrainian defenders. Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskyy vowed to restore control over the area. Ukrainian authorities said Russia would shift the main focus of its offensive to trying to seize all of the Donetsk region. *) Ukraine recovery meet to open in Switzerland Leaders from dozens of countries, international organisations and the private sector have gathered in Switzerland to hash out a plan to rebuild conflict-hit Ukraine. Ukrainian President Zelenskyy warned that the work ahead in the areas that have been liberated alone was "colossal". He added that over 2,000 villages and towns in the east and south of Ukraine still had to be freed. The two-day conference had been planned well before Russia launched its full-scale offensive on February 24, originally slated to discuss reforms in Ukraine. *) Copenhagen mall shooting A gunman has opened fire in a Copenhagen shopping mall, killing three people and wounding several others. The suspected gunman, a 22-year-old Danish man, is in custody. Danish police believe the shooting was not terror-related. They said the gunman acted alone and appears to have selected his victims at random. *) Evacuations in Australia's Sydney Australia has ordered thousands of people in Sydney to evacuate as overflowing rivers have swamped swathes of land. Australian authorities said about 32,000 people were under evacuation orders or warnings in New South Wales. On the third day of torrential rains on the east coast, rescuers said they had saved about 20 people in the past 12 hours, many trapped in cars on flood-swept roads. And finally… *) Biggest hajj pilgrimage since pandemic Muslims from across the world have packed the streets of Mecca as Islam's holiest city prepares to host the biggest Hajj pilgrimage since the coronavirus pandemic. One million people, including 850,000 from abroad, are allowed at this year's Hajj after two years of drastically curtailed numbers due to the pandemic.
