Democracy Now --a "must see" web broadcast

Democracy Now's excellent broadcast on Tuesday included:

--World Health Organization: Lebanese Residents Displaced by Israeli Bombardment Expected to Top 900,000
--A Sampling of Arab TV Coverage of the Middle East Crisis
--U.S. EXCLUSIVE: Syrian President Bashar Al-Asad on U.S. Foreign Policy, the Resistance in Iraq, Syrian-Lebanese Relations and More

The WHO report on the 900,000 displaced Lebanese residents and the unity that is occurring between disparate groups (ranging from Christian to Sunni) working to help them.

Mosaic TV is a Peabody award winning show. It's a daily digest of Arab Tv news and is available on Link TV via Dish Satellite. Excellent clips from Mosaic were shown and Amy Goodman interviewed the director, Jamal Dajani.

I have never seen nor heard an interview with the Syrian President Bashar Al-Asad. It's amazing what the corporate controlled media doesn't show us.

I wonder how many Americans remember that Syria cooperated with the United States by providing intelligence from immediately after 9/11 until March 2005?

If you want excellent coverage of the Middle East watch the July 18 broadcast of Democracy Now
