Our new guest Khaled joins us from Germany to discuss his experiences and research. The first part of our discussion digs into the prevalence of far-right politics and Khaled's first-hand knowledge of racism and Islamophobia in the school system. Afterwards, we work through some of the intellectual debates around Israel and the difficulties of fighting antisemitism by comparing them to American debates around anti-racism.
Mentioned: Zionism: A Brief History by Michael Brenner, The Holocaust Industry by Norman Finkelstein, The Life of the Prophet Muhammad by Hamza Yusuf (YouTube), Khaled Blankenship (YouTube).
