I talked to South African radio station Voice of the Cape about Al Jazeera’s publication of leaked South African intelligence service documents that largely concerned Israel.

I talk to Voice of the Cape about the Hamas attack on an Israeli military base

I spoke to the South African Muslim community radio station Voice of the Cape about Hamas’ now-famous attack on the Nahal Oz Israeli military base near Gaza. The video we discuss is embedded below. I also wrote a column about the incident.

I discuss negotiations and the reality of one-state; on the Islam Channel

Here is my latest appearance on Analysis, a current affairs programme that airs on the Islam Channel.

Watch part one here (they have disabled embedding so you’ll have to click the link). Here is part two:

I discuss Arafat’s poisoning on the Islam Channel

Just came across this from when I was on the Islam Channel last month:

Note this discussion took place before last night’s news about the French team’s contrary report. But note also that the Swiss report (you can read it in full here), which concluded Arafat died from polonium poisoning, remains the only published forensic investigation of Arafat’s remains. Here is Clayton Swisher’s latest report.

I talk Syria on Pacifica radio’s Flashpoints

Last week I discussed the impending Western bombing campaign against Syria with Kevin Pina, the host of Pacifica radio’s Flashpoints show. You can listen here, and here.

My interview with Russia Today on the Syrian Observatory

After my story for Al Akhbar English about the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Russia Today asked to do to the above interview with me about the case, released on their website today.

UPDATE: The problems I detail below have now been resolved. Fair play to RT, they corrected the page I complained about less than two hours after I posted the item below. To clarify: I have no problem with the edit of the interview itself, it’s well done. It’s also running on the live channel itself every hour on the half hour today, I’m told.

After my story for Al Akhbar English about the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, Russia Today asked to do to the above interview with me about the case, released on their website today. The interview itself is fine, however, I take issue with the written summary of the interview RT published on their site. Specifically:

  • I did not say “the sources of such information [on the dead in Syria] are highly questionable”.
  • I did not blame “Syrian activists for speaking on the situation in Syria the way the West wants”.
  • I certainly did not say “human rights activists cannot necessarily be trusted”. I did cast doubt on some of the claims of a certain Mussab Azzawi.

In short, watch the interview rather than trusting the article.

I talk to al-Hiwar TV about the Raed Salah affair

Al-Hiwar’s English language programme Jussor (Bridges) had me on to speak in some detail about the political persecution of Palestinian political-religious activist and leader Raed Salah in the UK.
