Welcome to my website where I offer links to my syndicated columns on politics and life, my radio show broadcasts, standup comedy and public speeches, my books, podcasts, and my social media.
I write three syndicated columns each week. One column addresses mainstream American political and slice-of-life issues for The Regional News, Southwest News-Herald, the Des Plaines Valley News every Tuesday/Wednesday. I also write a Special Monday Column every week for subscribers at the online news site SuburbanChicagoland.com (where all my mainstream columns are archived). And, I write one column every Wednesday on Middle East issues for the Arab News Newspaper.
I am NOT afraid to take on issues of racism. Racism is wrong. It’s wrong when it is against minorities, like Blacks and Hispanics. But, it is ALSO wrong when it is against Whites. Racism is even more immoral when politicians, the news media and other activists use racism for their own personal benefit, and profiteer by widening the racial divide.

I also host “The Ray Hanania Radio Show,” a live weekly radio show on the US Arab Radio Network every Wednesday morning at 8 AM EST on WNZK AM 690 Network on WNZK AM 690 radio live in Detroit and on WDMV AM 700 radio live in Washington DC. and live online at Facebook.com/ArabNews.
On the radio show, I interview guests on Arab American and Middle East news and topics. The Ray Hanania Radio Show is available in podcast on iTunes, Spotify and other major podcasting hosts. For more info, visit ArabNews.com/RayRadioShow.
I do standup comedy lampooning my Arab-Jewish marriage. I am Palestinian and my wife and son are Jewish. I also have a daughter who is Christian.
I hope you find the links on this page to be helpful in exploring my world of writing and opinion.

Stand-up Comedy ====
Book the Palestinian-Israeli standup comedy performance. Irreverent but respectful, not afraid to take on the toughest issues, and loved by moderates and those who support peace.
(Hated by the Sarsour/York fanatics)
Hanania is popular with the righteous people who embrace justice and fairness, reject extremism and love humor as a way to break the cycle of unending violence in the Middle East. (My mother is from Bethlehem, Jesus is my cousin!)
