    A Muslim, A Jew and The Met Commissioner Go There

    Sir Mark Rowley goes there… from pro-Palestine marches to far right protests and bad faith actors, the Metropolitan Police and its Chief have faced enormous challenges over the last 8 months. Sayeeda and David ask him about accusations of ‘two tier policing', of being too ‘woke’ as well as too 'fascist' and what the next government might look at in terms of policy changes.

    Biden’s peace plan, Faiza Shaheen’s deselection & festival boycotts

    As the election campaign ramps up, Labour have got themselves into hot water over the deselection of candidate Faiza Shaheen. Is Labour guilty of double standards on antisemitism and Islamophobia in the party, and is there a cynical attempt to weaponise racism for factional political purposes?

    Sayeeda and David discuss Biden’s ceasefire plan and whether it’s what Israel and Hamas really want.

    Hay Festival, Edinburgh International Book Festival and Cheltenham Literature Festival have all cut ties with their sponsor over links to the fossil fuel industry and alleged links to Israel. Has this been an effective strategy in the cultural fight against Israel or is the boycott bonkers?

    The Muslim vote, Rafah despair and graffitied cinemas

    A General Election has been called, and David & Sayeeda discuss the Muslim vote and whether Gaza will be top of the agenda for voters, and whether the election campaign will be dominated by divisive rhetoric.

    David & Sayeeda then reflect on the terrible images that have been coming out of Rafah this week, as well as the screening of a documentary about the horrors of October 7th which led to accusations of 'artwashing' and violent protests in East Finchley, North London. But what were the protests about and how have the far right somehow managed to co-opt them again?

    Also Spain, Norway and Ireland have recognised the state of Palestine. It is high time the UK followed suit?

    A new Jew and the ICC arrest warrants

    David’s away, so Sayeeda is joined by journalist and new Jew for the week Hugo Rifkind. They discuss Hugo's Scottish Jewishness, Jews as an ethnic minority and those against multiculturalism, as well as the International Criminal Court’s recent application for arrest warrants for the Israeli PM, defence minister and three Hamas leaders. Are war crimes inevitable in any conflict? Does Israel care how it’s viewed on the world stage? And Sayeeda tests Hugo’s Scottish-Yiddish.

    Israel & Pakistan, Netanyahu & Modi and the not so divine madness of Christian Zionism

    With David in India and Sayeeda heading to Pakistan, they discuss India’s ongoing elections and what they mean for the country's 200 million Muslims. They ask whether Modi and Netanyahu are kindred spirits, and look at Pakistan and Israel’s surprisingly similar history.


    After that, they tackle Christian Zionism in the US and how it influences Trump and politics worldwide.

    Why did the Jew cross the road…at Saturday’s Palestine protest? Columbia campus wars and defining Islamophobia

    David and Sayeeda discuss the pro-Palestinian protests in London where the head of the Campaign Against Antisemitism clashed with police, as well as chaos on campus at Columbia University across the pond.


    Are antisemitism and Islamophobia being ‘weaponised’ to shut down debate about Israel and Islam? And is having an ‘Islamophobia’ definition doing more harm than good, asks a top think tank?

    Listener Questions: Do Muslims care more about Palestine than Yemen, China, Myanmar? Can we criticise Israel without being called antisemitic? How should Israel protect itself from Hamas?

    This week David and Sayeeda take on your questions for the first time. Listen in as they go there!


    Q&A with timecodes

    1. Are Muslims exposed to more racism in the UK today versus Jews? (0:54)
    2. How can Israel protect itself from Hamas without causing a catastrophe in Gaza? (10:55)
    3. Could every Jew or Muslim who has the potential for dual citizenship potentially be deprived of their citizenship if the government of the day decides they have committed a crime incompatible with British citizenship? (23:22)
    4. Why don't British Muslims and Muslims worldwide collectively mourn for the 377, 000 Muslims recently killed in the current war in Yemen or China, or Pakistan or Myanmar in the same way that they mourn the deaths in Palestine? (33:30)
    5. If I condemn Israeli policy regarding settlements, does that make me an anti Semite? (45:28)
    6. If David believes in the continued right of Israel to exist, does that not make him a Zionist? (55:20)

    Eurovision & Queers for Palestine, Israeli “Pink-Washing”, Battles Over BDS & Tackling the Taliban

    This week our hosts tackle the Queers for Palestine led boycott of Eurovision, gay rights in the Middle East and accusations of Israeli “pink-washing”, as well as the government's anti-BDS bill. And then they go there on an even thornier topic - the Taliban's announcement it will reintroduce public stoning for adultery and women's rights in Islam.
