Tampa Terror Radio
by Joe Kaufman
For the past nine years, a radio show has been broadcast out of Tampa Bay, Florida every Friday representing the viewpoints of radical Islamists. The subjects on the show, ironically called 'True Talk,' almost always revolve around two subjects: extreme hatred of Israel and/or support for those associated with terrorism.
During the month of March, different anti-Israel and terror-related content made its way over the airwaves with the blessing of one of the show's co-hosts, Ahmed Bedier.
On March 14th, over half of Bedier's radio show consisted of a recorded speech given by Columbia University professor Rashid Khalidi discussing strides being made by the boycott movement against Israel. Khalidi has previously been identified in different news reports as "a PLO spokesman" and "a director of the Palestinian press agency, Wafa" (Wikalat al-Anba al-Filastinija), which Khalidi himself has described as "the PLO's news agency."
