Turning the Tide with Candace Salima
Guests: Ben Cohen and Scott Ott
Air Date: 3 November 2011

What a privilege it was to sit down with Ben Cohen in the first hour of my show, and Scott Ott in the second.

Ben Cohen and I discussed the activities in the Middle East, of which there are legion. Wey discussed Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Gilad Shirat, Iran, Palestine, and Israel. We talked the history of the Middle East, Islam and what part it does play in the world today, including the prisoner swap between Israel and Palestine.

Ben is journalist, broadcaster and media consultant based in New York City. He writes a column for The Huffington Post and regularly contributes opinion pieces and blogs to PJTV, The Jerusalem Post, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Harry's Place, Tablet, Congress Blog, and many other online and print publications. He is the author of the monograph The Ideological Foundations of the Boycott Campaign against Israel, as well as analytical papers for the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs and the Institute for Jewish Policy Research. He has appeared on television networks such as FoxNews, CNN, BBC, NPR, Al Arabiya, and Al Jazeera.

Then we moved from such a serious subject, when I visited with journalist and satirist, Scott Ott of PJTV, Weekly Standard, Insight, Sports Illustrated to discuss Occupy Wall Street, Unions, and his new television show Freedom's Charter. The host of PJ News Break and host of Trifecta, we had a blast!
