Beirut-based indie-rock band Mashrou' Leila tackles taboo topics - political corruption, same-sex love, religion (inter-religious marriage), and Middle Eastern feminism. Their catchy and danceable Arabic pop songs are full of guitars, drum machines, samples, violin and frontman Hamed Sinno's sensual voice. In the years since they first formed in 2008, they've become both enormously popular and enormously controversial, even banned in some countries. Mashrou' Leila's 2015 record, Ibn el Leil - means ‘son of the night.' They play music from it live in-studio. (From the Archives, 2017.)

On the show, Chris Hedges discusses the nature of Islamophobia with the author and professor, Nazia Kazi. Islamophobia is not defined solely as anti-Muslim sentiment. It is not limited to hate speech and hate crimes, racial stereotypes, or discrimination against Muslim men and women. Islamophobia, in its most pernicious and deadly form, is embodied in the wars waged by the United States in the Muslim world, as well as the laws and internal security structures that turn Muslims in the United States into “the other.” These laws include the criminalization of migrants, allowing Americans to justify the violent and illegal treatment of the undocumented, and the wholesale surveillance of Muslim communities. It includes the crippling sanctions imposed by the United States on countries such as Iraq and Iran. It includes the numerous military bases and occupation forces in Muslim countries. It includes the drone attacks, missile strikes, and aerial assaults that have left in their wake tens of thousands of nameless Muslim dead. It includes the alliances and massive arms sales to brutal Middle Eastern dictators and monarchs who crush democratic movements, imprison and execute dissidents, impose draconian censorship, and treat women as property. And it includes the cartoon versions of Islam that feed negative stereotypes, a cartoon version that is part of both the right-wing and liberal Islamophobia, which while rhetorically gentler, also permits the targeting of Muslims at home and abroad. Professor Nazia Kazi's new book is ‘Islamophobia, Race, and Global Politics'.

Simon has been spending several months each year on the ground in China for almost three decades and has built an extraordinary network which gives him unique insight into the reality behind countless opinions offered by distant ‘analysts'. In this hugely enjoyable hour, we discuss what's really happening in the Middle Kingdom, the importance of strengthening of ties between Russia, China, Iran and other Middle Eastern countries against a backdrop of a U.S. retrenchment, the possible size of Russian and Chinese gold reserves as well as Simon's latest thoughts on the copper market - something about which his knowledge is extensive.

Her own first endeavor, Compass Rose, is a restaurant inspired by the extensive travel she did while living in Russia with her husband, who was posted there as a correspondent for NPR. Since then, Rose has opened a second critically acclaimed restaurant in DC called Maydan which earned a Michelin star in 2019.  In this episode, Rose and Esme discuss the ways that identity and culture are expressed through our cuisines, the amazing food-focused trip through North Africa and the Middle East Rose took with her Maydan team, and the experience of revisiting Lebanon with her twin aunts who, like many second-generation immigrants of their age from that part of the Middle East, were returning to their maternal homeland for the very first time.

Most people should be familiar with one of the most destructive wars in European history, World War I. The War left more than 10 million people dead and 20 million wounded. As for the front lines of the conflict, you might be more familiar with major fronts in Europe, where the largest number of troops were deployed. With that being said, far fewer people may have paid attention to the lesser battlefields of World War I in the Middle East. But in actuality, the situation in the Middle East was equally volatile and treacherous. The theater of war in the Middle Eastern was further complicated by the fact that it was not taken as seriously by the military leadership of the combatant nations. This gave a few military amateurs the chance to engage in operations. Undoubtedly a prominent figure among those amateurs was Oxford archaeologist Thomas Edward Lawrence. Without a single day of military training, he transformed the situation on the desert battlefields and laid the foundations for the formation of the modern Middle East.

Happy Thursday Friends! We are 2 days away for Christmas. I am looking forward to spending time with family and making more memories. I am excited to introduce you to my next guest. He is a very talented artist, he has paved his own way as a musician and not getting tied up in any specific label as an artist. Please welcome Michael Emenau. From his first professional gig at the age 16 drumming in a country band to performing at with a symphony orchestra at Carnegie Hall four years later, the career of Michael Emenau has been as prolific as it has been varied.  After completing a degree in classical percussion from McGIll University Michael played for multiple orchestras. Feeling confined he switched his focus over to jazz vibraphone, both of these experiences provided the skills to perform a wide range of musical genres, to date he has recorded vibraphone on over 200 albums. In the early 90's he moved to Tokyo and immersed himself into the acid jazz and EDM scene becoming a member of the weekly UFO's (United Future organisation) live/DJ all night music battles at Club Yellow. He went on to record on 5 of UFO's albums including the platinum selling “Red Hot and Blue”.In the late 90's Michael relocated to San Francisco where his musical interests cracked wide open—producing 3 albums with the Middle Eastern electronic group LUMIN; was a founding member of The Jazz Mafia which incorporated live looping and sampling into small and large jazz ensembles; fronting an Afro-Cuban dance band while also releasing solo jazzy downtempo music with Six Degrees Records and Hearts of Space.In 2005 Michael and his family relocated to Paris where he started a multi-year project unearthing, re-arranging, recording and performing the music of Henry Purcell with Cirque du Soleil star vocalist Elise Velle. This project spilled over to writing a musical, Divine Intervention--an interpretation of the demi-god Dionysus and his actual cultural influence on Classical composers and authors culminating in a 2-week run at the Nova Scotia Fringe Festival.Michael, his family and his beagle currently reside in Montreal where he is a world-touring member of the Grammy nominated “Les Triplettes de Bellville” Cine-Concerts series. He co-leads the Canadian Folk Music Awards nominated “ensemble of the year 2020” SUSSEX, which interweaves folk, ragtime, and roots music.Since the onset of Covid Michael has gone back to the studio and released 3 albums of Lofi Hip-Hop instrumental. The first of which is based on the music of Eric Satie and streamed over a half million times on Spotify. This quick success led to Michael signing with Six Degrees Distribution/Universal Records whose team helped to spark his  renewed passion for classical music.

Zaid Ayoub is the founder and CEO of the Bay Area-headquartered, rapidly expanding fast-casual concept SAJJ Mediterranean. While studying engineering in college, Ayoub frequented a local falafel shop that often had a line out the door. He realized that if Mediterranean food could blend great flavors with streamlined operations, there was a strong market (full of hungry people) eager to eat it! After a few years in tech startups, a friend of his mentioned his Mediterranean fast-casual concept idea, and Ayoub and four partners took the plunge, opening the first SAJJ location in Menlo Park in 2012. At the opening, Ayoub was approached and asked “How long have you been open?” Ayoub's cheerful response of “45 minutes!” was met with disbelief, then, “Can I invest?” As SAJJ has grown in the last 9 years, Ayoub never took his eyes off the product: high-quality, fresh food that was also approachable and transparent. He realized that people want convenience and speed without sacrificing a culinary experience, which is why SAJJ uses a customize-your-own service model. Ayoub knew that “Mediterranean food” covers a wide variety of geographic regions, and the cuisine is often adjusted to meet the local palate. In Paris' Latin Quarter, for example, falafel and shawarma sandwiches are paired with french fries, which SAJJ offers. Keeping in the spirit of this culinary localization, ingredients like kale and avocado adapt Mediterranean food to the California palate. Ayoub also understood that customers want to know what they're eating, and where their food comes from. Early on, SAJJ adopted a policy of transparency and formed partnerships with local farmers and bakers to source fresh produce and bread. In fact, each SAJJ restaurant proudly and prominently displays a large map of California that shows exactly where that location gets their produce. This customizability, localization, and transparency of SAJJ's offerings makes Mediterranean food convenient and approachable. Under Ayoub's strategic leadership, SAJJ Mediterranean has grown from that single brick-and-mortar location into a growing network of 15 restaurants and additional food trucks offering catering and event services. Ayoub plans to use his background in entrepreneurship, and his longtime love of Mediterranean food, to continue expanding SAJJ Mediterranean into a trusted restaurant brand that brings fresh, healthy Middle Eastern eats to those around the globe.

Berlin is home to Europe's largest Palestinian diaspora community and one of the world's largest Israeli diaspora communities. Germany's guilt about the Nazi Holocaust has led to a public disavowal of anti-Semitism and strong support for the Israeli state. Meanwhile, Palestinians in Berlin report experiencing increasing levels of racism and Islamophobia. In The Moral Triangle: Germans, Israelis, Palestinians (Duke University Press, 2020), Sa'ed Atshan and Katharina Galor draw on ethnographic fieldwork and interviews with Israelis, Palestinians, and Germans in Berlin to explore these asymmetric relationships in the context of official German policies, public discourse, and the private sphere. They show how these relationships stem from narratives surrounding moral responsibility, the Holocaust, the Israel/Palestine conflict, and Germany's recent welcoming of Middle Eastern refugees. They also point to spaces for activism and solidarity among Germans, Israelis, and Palestinians in Berlin that can help foster restorative justice and account for multiple forms of trauma. Highlighting their interlocutors' experiences, memories, and hopes, Atshan and Galor demonstrate the myriad ways in which migration, trauma, and contemporary state politics are inextricably linked.

Bryan walks through his journey from military service, to a career in the Virginia state government, being a prosecutor, and what led him to becoming a founder in the menswear industry. Jason and Bryan commiserate on what's wrong with professional men's clothing and how Acumen Apparel is ready to solve it. Never be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. Even if you fail, you never really fail because you have suffered that you did something different.Bryan Rhode always knew growing up that he wanted to serve in the military after college. The son of a Navy pilot and the grandson of Army veterans, it seemed only natural. Bryan attended Penn State University on a Navy ROTC scholarship and graduated 1 st in his class at Marine Officer Candidate School. He served for four years in the Marine Corps infantry, deploying overseas twice.Having served several years as a prosecutor, Bryan then moved on to successive high- level state government positions, including Secretary of Public Safety for the Commonwealth of Virginia, a gubernatorial cabinet post.  Bryan has always been involved in civic affairs, serving as a Rotarian, a board member for several local non- profits, and various leadership positions with the Bar and veterans' organizations. Bryan was featured in a local style magazine's annual Top 40 Under 40 issue.Bryan is a graduate of a Harvard Executive Program, the Virginia Executive Institute, the Sorensen Institute for Political Leadership, and a Middle Eastern delegation of the American Council of Young Political Leaders.Founding ACUMEN Apparel (www.ShopACUMEN.com), Bryan embarked on his new entrepreneurial career path.  With ACUMEN, he wanted to create a men's clothing brand that empowers professional men by solving their problems, so they can solve the world's. ACUMEN began with the idea of the patent-pending Set, where Bryan used his unique knowledge of shirt stays in the military and improved on it to help professional men keep their dress shirts tucked and tight all day.  Bryan intends to build the ACUMEN brand to outfit the complete man. Bryan wants to equip men to conquer their day, day after day.www.ShopACUMEN.comhttps://www.facebook.com/acumenapparelhttps://www.instagram.com/acumen.apparel/https://www.linkedin.com/in/bryan-rhode-a5115a5/Enjoying the podcast?

1. Pinterest Predicts: The trends to watch for 2022 - Pinterest through its Predicts report provided an overview of where things are headed in 2022, based on Pin activity, in a range of business categories. They have highlighted 35 trends that it says are not trending yet but will be in the near future (Pinterest shared 30 trends last year).The trends range from make-up to fashion, to home décor, with various other, less Pinterest-y elements along the way. Pinterest has also provided a more visual overview of each trend on its dedicated Pinterest Predicts mini-site, along with Pin samples in each category.There's some interesting data here, and if you're marketing on Pinterest, or considering the platform for your 2022 strategy, it's worth taking a look at the search trend notes and data, which may provide some key guidance in your approach.And at 80% predictive value, in terms of flagging what's coming next, Pinterest's track record is solid.2. Pinterest Acquires Vochi, A Video Creation and Editing App - As part of its broader push into video content, Pinterest has announced the acquisition of video editing app Vochi, which enables users to easily add effects to their clips.Vochi enables users to remove items from clips, add 3D effects, and add other specialized visual features that can make your clips stand out in feeds. The app is currently used by around 500k people per month and is generating around $4 million in annual revenue through subscriptions and add-on features.And now, it will become part of the broader Pinterest creator suite, which will add more elements to its growing video push, which also includes its ‘Idea Pins' social Stories variation.3. Facebook Launches 'Professional Profiles' for Creators - Facebook's making a push to facilitate more opportunities for creators in its app, with new ‘Professional Mode for Profiles' to welcome new creators in, and updates for Creator Pages.As per Facebook:“We know that many creators - especially those who are just starting out - are on profiles, so from today, we're announcing the roll-out of a new professional mode for profiles. Professional Mode will open up access to post, audience, and profile insights, as well as give easy access to monetization features – all in one place.”So rather than pushing new creators to professional Pages, Professional Mode for Profiles will provide more insights on post-performance and audience growth for those using regular Facebook profiles.Those who turn on Professional Mode also qualify for Reels bonuses and other features, which Facebook will be hoping will lure more people into posting more often, with a view to increasing these newly present engagement stats. Note, right at the bottom of the first screenshot, that you can turn off Professional Mode at any time if you decide that being a social media creator isn't for you.4. Facebook Launches 'Stars Fest' to Increase Donations & Audience - Stars are essentially a virtual currency that can be purchased in various bundles, which then enables Facebook users to allocate them to creators via live-streams (audio and video). And from now on until December 31st, you'll be able to purchase more Stars for less, with discounts on Stars packages, while Facebook's also adding new Stars features and usage options to spark further interest in the tool.The biggest functional addition, at least from a general user perspective, is the launch of a new Stars Store, “where people can buy Stars at lower prices”.“Stars are deposited into people's virtual wallets to then send to eligible creators during Facebook Live, on-demand videos, or Live Audio Rooms. In the Stars store, fans get more Stars for their money at lower prices, so they can support even more of their favorite creators.”In addition to this, Facebook's also looking to make Stars useable in more functions, including for videos in the News Feed, in Facebook Watch, and within the Facebook Gaming tab.Facebook's also adding a new ‘Stars Party' option, which will provide Stars fundraising goals when groups of people are viewing and donating in a live stream.5. Twitter Extends Access to Spaces Recording - Twitter is expanding access to its Spaces Recording capability, which began rolling out in late October. All users can listen to them, and more hosts can use the feature.6. Snap Unveils 523 Content Accelerator Program - Snapchat launched "523," a new content accelerator program for small, minority-owned content companies. Many accelerators at social media companies are designed to bolster individual creators. The 523 programs is focused on media companies creating premium shows for Snapchat's content arm, Discover.The program will award 20 minority-owned media upstarts $10,000 per month for six months to help them create content for Discover.Snapchat defines minority-owned businesses as those that are 51% owned and operated by individuals who identify as Black, Hispanic, Asian, Indigenous, Middle Eastern, non-binary, LGBTQ+, women, veterans, or having a disability. Eligible businesses must also employ fewer than 20 people and have gross revenue in 2021 — or in the last 12 months — that's less than $5 million.7. New Marketing with Purpose Business Attributes Showcase Brand Values - Microsoft Advertising has added Asian-owned, Latin-owned, Women-owned, and Diabetic-friendly business attributes, enabling advertisers to showcase more of their selling points and values, the company announced Thursday. These four new attributes join the 32 Marketing with Purpose business attributes that Microsoft introduced in September.Personal ethics and brand values have become factors in buying decisions for many customers.

"5. The Jesus way has got me to see that we cannot cast off responsibility for the plights and problems of "other people." I was reminded of the Jesus ethic recently when I popped into a Mexican restaurant and was stopped in my tracks by an arresting poster near the door. It was a sketch of a Middle Eastern-looking man with a baby tucked in his coat. "Refugees," the poster bade, "are welcome here. Stop profiling Muslims." Given the ethnic background of the restaurant proprietors and staff, you'd think they had enough to worry about with respect to "their own kind" being demonized during this season of anti-immigrant sentiment. How moving -- how motivating -- that they could extend their sphere of concern and stand in solidarity with members of another threatened group. This yearning for justice -- justice for all -- is something Jesus promoted and practiced. The Jesus way has got me to see that if we are going to live meaningful and ethical lives, we must reject the notion that we have to look out only for ourselves and our kind. Jesus taught that everyone counts, that the only "group" we're part of is the human group, and that if one segment of our global neighborhood bears the weight of suffering and injustice, so do we all." I support the secular movement and the human rights of faith-based persons. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/antonio-myers4/support

On Saturday, December 4, 2021, an explosion occurred near Iran's nuclear facility outside the city of Natanz. Afterwards, two nearby villages were evacuated. Was the explosion the result of a weapons test? An accident? Sabotage? No one yet knows what took place in the mountains of northern Iran that day. And whereas civilians and observers can afford to wait for more information, national-security professionals are forced to act and react to events like this in real time without a lot of information. If there's an explosion near the nuclear compound of an adversarial nation, what do you do? Natanz and its uncertainty is the point of departure for this week's podcast. Victoria Coates, the former deputy national security adviser for Middle Eastern and North African affairs, shares her experience making decisions under pressure and with imperfect information.

The Fast Casual Nation Podcast offers exclusive interviews with experts ranging from top chefs and brand makers to executives and restaurants who work in one of the fastest-growing segments of the restaurant industry. In this episode, I chat with Devin Handler, vice president of brand marketing at Naf Naf Grill about restaurant trends, marketing tactics, and chicken schnitzel. Handler shares how he got started in the industry and restaurant marketing, he says that his background was nontraditional. He started in the advertising agency world in creative and moved into insight and strategy. Handler says he began just falling in love with the idea of using insight and consumer behavior to drive meaningful communications that help grow businesses. He talks about making a change and working for Qdoba Restaurant Corporation which had thirty restaurants when he started and they had over eight hundred when he left the company. Handler talks about joining Naf Naf after Greg Willman had come on board as chief executive officer. He talks about Willman's vision for the brand saying, “I've never met anybody so all in on a brand in my life and I think that gives you a little bit of an idea of how important this brand is to him and how much potential he thinks it has.” He adds, “we want to make middle eastern mediterranean cuisine a mainstream favorite across the United States, one because it needs to be and then two because it's a very interesting way to keep the world you know sort of adventurously eating and exploring new things but doing it in a way that is healthful.” Naf Naf was started by Sahar Sander, who wanted to take the food and flavors of his childhood and bring them to his new home in America. Handler says Sander wanted to do it in a way that created the idea of sitting around the grill or the table and having a great meal, making lasting memories and hopefully connections that happen only over a meal.When it comes to Middle Eastern cuisine, Handler says “I do believe that people are opening up to that. I think while there are sort of educational hurdles for let's say mainstream America there is this desire to get out there and find new things and taste new things.” To hear Handler's take on off-premise, marketing strategies, Fan The Flame, and Naf Naf's expansion plans, listen to this episode of Fast Casual Nation on Apple Podcasts.

It's no coincidence that the bird we eat for Thanksgiving and a Middle Eastern country are both called Turkey. One was named after the other, and it all has to do with a 500-year-old story of emerging global trade, mistaken identity, foreign language confusion, and how the turkey took Europe by storm as a must-have status symbol for the ultra-wealthy.

Rund and Ramtin speak to sci-fi writer and Princeton historian, Haris Durrani, about why the lore of Dune still proves so relevant and the ways in which the 2021 film succeeds and fails to convey its messages. "Dreams are messages from the deep." Those are the first words that appear on the screen in Denis Villeneuve's 2021 film, Dune, a cinematic adaptation of the iconic 1965 sci-fi book by Frank Herbert. The book contains dreams within dreams. Dreams of a future humanity in all of its flawed complexity. Dune takes place about ten thousand years from now with humanity having spread across the galaxy, populating planets and evolving in myriad mysterious and fascinating ways. But Herbert's vision isn't unrecognizable to our contemporary eyes. In fact, unlike many other similar sci-fi stories, Dune projects Islamic belief and philosophy into the future, placing it right at the center of future events. It uses Middle Eastern history to paint a dream of a future which is both futuristic and ancient, exhilarating and full of tension. It is a story about the perils of imperialism, messianic beliefs, and environmental degradation. It is a story about us.
