Short Description: 
Die German Stunde — the first “German Hour” on KBOO

How much do you really know about Germans?
Why is going naked on a beach or in a public park in Germany okay and why are there restrictions here? Is the going naked movement gaining strength in Oregon and could Germany serve as a model? How do Germans deal with nudity and is there a difference between baring it in the eastern part of Germany versus the west? Germany has fully developed single payer healthcare, so why does a German who worked in Portland and went back to Germany yearn to return here? And then there’s the World Cup.

And thanks to all of the hair stylists who volunteered their time to cut hair – Lisa Butti, formerly of Salon Bucci, Lyn Moelich, Heather and Tab from the Tribe Hair Salon, Brett from Beige Blond, and all the stylists from Bishops Barbershop who participated in today’s event.

The plight of Christians in Bethlehem today

program date: 
Thu, 12/10/2009

As Christians around the world prepare for the annual Christmas holiday, Christians who live in Bethlehem say that their plight has been neglected and forgotten. Christian Palestinians have lived in Bethlehem since the time of Christ, but have faced dislocation and repression since Israel was created in 1948.

This hour, we examine the situation of Bethlehem today, including a report on al-Wallaja village, which is a Christian Palestinian village located just outside of Bethlehem, produced by Ghassan Bannoura and Hazem Jamjoum; an interview with Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh of Bethlehem University; and a report on solidarity ‘From Brooklyn to Bethlehem’.

We’d also like to announce a talk by Saed Bannoura, a Christian Palestinian who grew up in Bethlehem, which will take place next Wednesday, December 16th from 5:30 - 7:30 pm at the Central Library – 801 Southwest 10th Avenue in Portland.

Dhoruba bin Wahad and Naji Mujahid: Denied entry into Palestine

program date: 
Thu, 11/26/2009

5:00 - 6:00 pm Thurs. Nov. 26th

KBOO interviews Dhoruba bin Wahad, who is speaking from a hotel in Jordan after being detained and then denied entry into Palestine by Israeli authorities.  bin Wahad is a former political prisoner in the US who was charged in 1971 with the murder of two police officers, but was vindicated nineteen years later when a judge ruled that the FBI had fabricated evidence in order to frame bin Wahad of a crime he didn't commit.

As an African-American, on his way to a conference on political prisoners convened by the Palestinian Authority in the city of Jericho, bin Wahad feels that he was racially profiled, along with his travelling companion Naji Mujahid - the only two African Americans on a busload of white tourists.
