EPISODE

Is U.S. Military Action Against Nations That Support Terrorism Justified?
Hosted by: Lynn Harper The guest’s key points: Military preparedness in the U.S. is lacking and that invites terrorist attack.  We must build forces.  In contrast, intelligence is not integrated and military battle alone takes huge resources and sacrifice of human life, which will not win the war.  The best offense is a strong defense. GUESTS: Dr. Omaran Abdeen, San Diego Representative for Council for American-Islamic Relations; New York Myke Shelby, Multimedia Host, National Civil Rights Leader San Diego Harley

EPISODE

Is Compromising Civil Rights Justified in the War on Terrorism?
Hosted by: Lynn Harper The guest’s key points: Wholesale violation of civil rights, Internet surveillance, phone taps, profiling, citizen “spying”, library usage data, is not effective in fighting the War on Terrorism.  In contrast, terrorism is a snake with many heads and we have no choice but to grant authority to the current administration.  What measures are making an impact on the War on Terrorism?  Do you agree or disagree? GUESTS: Dr. Steve Albrecht, President of Baron Center, Inc. San Diego; Dale Kelly Bankhead, Public Affairs Director, American Civil Liberties Union of San Diego & Imperial Counties, (ACLU New York).

2nd OPINION
EONetwork Productions © All Rights Reserved 2014 – Costa Mesa, CA 92626

One thought on “Embracing differences of opinion generates debate that produces knowledge, critical thinking and a greater understanding of individual diversity in the free marketplace of ideas and competition.

  1. Hello,
    I’m writing to you on behalf of Muslims 4 Liberty, a group of American Muslims advancing the cause of liberty from an Islamic perspective and trying to correct misinformation about Muslims in the mainstream media.
    Our message at Muslims 4 Liberty is that a Muslim may be fully American without reforming their faith or compromising their national identity, that these two may be held simultaneously without contradiction or diminishment. Given the hostile and sensationalized rhetoric surrounding the topic of Islam’s place in American society, we believe that exploring the compatibility between Islam and the philosophy of liberty are more important than ever.
    To those ends, we humbly request the opportunity for our Director, Will Coley, or one of our other spokespersons, to present a perspective alternative that is more representative of the mainstream American Muslim experience. Will Coley is a long time activist in the Tea Party movement and former co-host of “Tea Party Patriots Live” on WORL 660 Orlando with host Phil Russo. He specializes in lectures which demystify Islamic law and compare its functions and basic axioms to the US Constitution.

    Best regards
