Welcome to Ray Hanania’s syndicated columns, radio broadcasts, books and podcasts, a selection of his favorite writings (syndicated columns, features, news stories and profiles).

Hanania writes three syndicated columns each week, one on Middle East issues and two on mainstream American issues. His Middle East columns appear weekly in the English-language Arab News Newspaper.

Hanania’s mainstream political and slice-of-life columns appear in the Southwest News Newspaper Group and are online at SuburbanChicagoland.com, at the Patch.com, and in the Southwest News Newspaper group (Des Plaines Valley News, The Regional News Newspaper, the Southwest News-Herald and the Reporter Newspapers).

Hanania also hosts “The Ray Hanania Show,” a live weekly radio show on the US Arab Radio Network on WNZK AM 690 radio live in Detroit and on WDMV AM 700 radio live in Washington DC on Arab American and Middle East news and topics. The radio show will be available on a new podcast system soon with a landing page at Arab News. Watch it live online at Facebook.com/ArabNews every Wednesday morning at 8 AM EST.

If you believe that Palestinians will be treated any different under a Democratic administration than they were under a Republican administration, you have been AWOL from American Politics. There is no difference in America between the two when it comes to Palestine … the real culprit, the real cancer is the mainstream American news media which fuels the racism against Arabs and plays partisan politics with the American system.

Book the Palestinian-Israeli standup comedy performance. Irreverant but respectful, not afraid to take on all of the issues, and loved by moderates and those who support peace. Hated by the fanatics, Hezbollah, Hamas activists, racist Israeli settlers, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Ahmadinejad, Hassan Rouhani, Phalangists, the KKK and Neo-Nazis, Hanania is popular with the righteous, people who love comedy, peace and justice. (My mother is from Bethlehem, Jesus is my cousin!)
