Arundhati Roy exposes Hindutva and Islamophobia

leave a comment »


Indian author, peace activist and former Tamil film actress, Arundhati Roy (born 1959), was interviewed on March 24, 2010 at the Lensic Theater in Santa Fe, New Mexico by Avram (Ari) David Lewis for Al-Jazeera (English). She talks about Islamophobia, Hindu extremists (Hindutva), vast economic disparity between rich minority and the majority of Indian population living in acute poverty and various resistance wars in India and Afghanistan (watch the video below).

Avi Lewis 42 is a Canadian Jewish film-maker and TV host (CBC). He is son of Stephen Lewis, former President of Canada’s third largest political party NDP and former Canadian Ambassador at United Nations. Avi is married to Canadian Jewish intellectual Naomi Klein (born 1970). Israel Hasbara outlet, FrontPage Magazine, published a ‘character assassination’ piece on Avi Lewis by Kathy Shaidle on March 26, 2008. Kathy in her long attack on her fellow Jew wrote: “And while the idea of a Jewish broadcaster joining World’s biggest Muslim and hate America/Israel media outlet seem shocking, it is in fact natural for a post-modern, “progressive” like Lewis….” In reality, Kathy lied, because former deputy head of Israeli General Security Service, Gideon Ezra, was quoted in ‘Foreign Policy (FP)’, July/August: “I wish all Arab media were like Al-Jazeera“. In fact Al-Al-Jazeera’s (English) senior editor, Vince Ryan and the Editor-in-Chief, Russell Merryman – are both hard-line pro-Israel Zionists. In February, 2006 – Dave Marash 66 (Jewish), former reporter for ABCNews’ “Hotline” joined Washington-based Al-Jazeera English (AJE) as an anchorman. AJE has four news hubs – in Washington, Qatar, London and Kuala Lumpur. AJE’s military analyst is former US Marine captain Josh Rushing. Will Stebbins, the former foreign correspondent with AP TV News, is Chief of 125-member Washington bureau. Amy Marash (Dave’s wife), who earlier worked for MSNBC, is AJE producer.
