On this week’s program, Khalil speaks with four experts on post-9/11 profiling: Activist Raed Jarrar, who was singled out two weeks ago for wearing a political T-shirt upon boarding a plane in New York, and three Bay Area-based American attorneys specializing in post 9/11 profiling: Sanctuary for Community Advancement president and founder Banafsheh Akhlaghi, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights attorney Shirin Sinnar and ACLU’s Julia Harumi Mass.

Later on the program, Matthew Shenoda will be reading from his debut collection of poems "Somewhere Else."

Also, on the program, we will hear audio excerpts from the documentary film "Occupation 101: Voices of the Silenced Majority" that is scheduled for screening in the 2006 Arab Film Festival. The festival features more than 40 films in San Francisco, San Jose and Berkeley.
