Irvine --- What is happening in the Middle East?

Tomorrow, on Subversity, we'll chat with Michel Shehadeh, the West Coast regional director of the ADC, the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. The ADC is the largest Arab-American grassroots organization in the United States. It was founded in 1980 by former Senator James Abourezk. It Has 72 chapters nation wide.

Shehadeh heads the ADC Orange County regional office in Garden Grove, CA. He is originally from Palestine and holds a BA in Journalism and an MA in Public Policy and Administration from California State U in Long Beach. He is one of the LA8, the Palestinian deportation case, of seven Palestinians and a Kenyan who are targeted for deportation by the INS due to their political views.

We'll chat about what's happening in the Middle East in the wake of tumultous events in Lebanon and Syria and how these affect the Middle East peace process. We'll also chat about the embargo on Iraq and anti-Arab discrimination in the U.S.
