First guest: Zeshan Shahbaz pushes back against the National Khutbah Campaign to Increase Vaccine Confidence, which is pressuring all Muslim imams across Canada to deliver pro-vax khutbahs (sermons). He writes: “This heretical organization CMCTF ought to be investigated and its money trail exposed for publicly promoting this haraam intervention….Can you please share the following to as many fellow Muslims and other Imams as possible: Declarations and public endorsements/acknowledgement of the Haraam nature of Vaccines by various Ulema organizations.” Zeshan Shahbaz is a correspondent with The Ummah Times which is an Islamic news and analysis platform.

Unfortunately I was knocked off the air by a major regional internet outage, so Zeshan was left high and dry until Mr. Rho the producer came to the rescue. My backup internet came back online 20 minutes later, at which point the show resumed with the next guest:

Gideon Polya discusses the April 27 Human Rights Watch report that blasted Israeli apartheid, and shares his views of Quds Day, the final Friday of Ramadan (May 7 this year). Quds Day is the day Muslims commemorate their dedication to the liberation of the Zionist-occupied holy city of Jerusalem-al-Quds. From my forthcoming Crescent International article:

In 2020, due to pandemic restrictions, large gatherings could not be held in most countries. So activists instead launched the #FlyTheFlag campaign calling on people to publicly display the Palestinian flag during the week-long run-up to Quds Day, then post about it with the hashtag #FlyTheFlag. (As well as #QudsDay , etc.)

The same campaign continues this year. Since Quds Day falls on Friday May 7, 2021 (Ramadan 25, 1442 h.) people will be flying Palestinian flags from May 1 to May 7. Organizers at posted the following instructions:

  1. Take a picture or video of yourself with the Palestine flag.
  2. Share it on your social media with the hashtag #FlyTheFlag, #QudsDay , etc.
  3. Tag your friends and family asking them to do the same!

Final 10 minutes: Pro-Trump Republican activist Rolf Lindgren calls in to explain why he (unlike many other pro-Trump folks) got vaxxed.

    Vaccine propaganda is intensifying. Used to be when Big Pharma cooked up something poisonous they would just sell it like thalidomide. Then they brainwashed consumers with ads to induce demand. Now they’ve learned to capture regulators and make government and industry forcibly stuff it up your ass. This Baylor Zionazi shows how Big Pharma mad scientists get brainwashed into psychosis.

    Poor mediocre shit, he throws aggression around like he knows what it means. Clearly he never learned a thing in his life but how to go around with his vaccine hammer looking for nails.

    The guest from Australia sometime contradicts himself. He believes on Scientific approach that I trust he does. And then he accepts the use of masks, social distancing etc.
    First of all the doctors or medical personnel have nothing to do with social distancing calculations and setting up the criteria. That is why I never hear any intelligent answer from a medical person about social distancing. This area falls into environmental field/s Dispersion Modeling. airborne particulates. Dependent on climatic conditions. So all of a sudden Fauci became an expert on social distancing and people taking his words as gospels. No wonder there is so much debate and confusion because the wrong people are controlling the debate. People from The JewYork Times and Washington Compost.

    How about the discussion on the size of characteristics of the flu itself. It should be very easy to pin down in this era of high tech. The guest reminds me of Noam Chomsky who I immensely respect and have learned a lot from him. However, when I heard him talk about as an expert of 911 buildings collapse I just just had one comment. “Sir you are wrong person to provide you expertise on such subjects”. Similar problem with late Alec Cockburn of Counterpunch. He was providing his expertise on 911 once on C-Span. People take such opinion seriously. I wonder why?

    So all of a sudden Fauci became an expert on social distancing and people taking his words as gospels.

    I still don’t really at some levels understand why anyone trusts a word he says, “including ‘and’ and ‘the’.” He’s already admitted lying to us about masking and what percentages it might take to reach herd immunity (my take is that we won’t know unless and until we reach it, but we’re still in the very early stages of understanding this pathogen).

    when I heard [Noam Chomsky] talk about as an expert of 911 buildings collapse I just just had one comment. “Sir you are wrong person to provide you expertise on such subjects”.

    Chomsky has spent six decades embedded in the world’s best engineering university. Unless they’re really close minded, scientists at MIT pick up a lot of engineering knowledge from the practical like how to do electrical wiring to the general mindset. So while not an expert, he like has what it takes to understand them, and no doubt had talked to some world class ones in the relevant 9/11 topics.

    Also don’t forget the basic principle behind the Official explanations is thermal expansion, what every housewife who uses hot water on a stuck metal lid knows. Any 9/11 truther who doesn’t understand that can be safely ignored.

    so chomsky picked up engineering knowledge through osmosis? and what about building 7, can that also be safely ignored as well, you troll.

    WTC Building 7 is also Officially caused by thermal expansion, fires could not be contained because of the low water pressure after the collapse of the tall towers, one critical support was eventually pushed off its concrete foundation resulting in a cascading failure of the rest of the building. The Official explanation is plausible, and various randoms on the Internet I have some respect for have concluded it’s correct and not correct.

    NIST’s WTC-7 fairy tale “plausible”?! That’s the craziest comment I’ve ever seen at Unz, which is saying something.

  7. @Kevin Barrett

    So I guess you’ve never used hot water to expand the metal lid of a jar you were trying to unscrew? You might want to talk to some womenfolk about this now apparently obscure to male normies concept of thermal expansion.

    Although I have no recollection if the Official version I’m talking is a NIST one, but when talking about it from 50,000 feet one does not need to go into much detail as to whether it’s conceptually plausible. Perhaps you could address the technical points I made instead of trying an “it’s a ‘fairy tail’” blanket dismissal? Does an “Arabist-Islamologist scholar” such as yourself have any grasp of physics, or civil or mechanical engineering and the like?

    As noted by other alums of serious science and engineering higher education institutions, we live in an interesting world where we are required to do some serious study in the “humanities,” like around one year out of a normal four year undergraduate degree, while in most places those specializing in that broad range of topics are allowed to graduate ignorant of real STEM.

    @Kevin Barrett

    looks like “that would be telling” well known pharma shill and deep state troll has decided to splain 9/11 to the ignorant unwashed masses here at unz, lucky us.

  9. Notsofast says:
    @That Would Be Telling

    thermal expansion, blah blah blah, opening a jar, blah blah blah, so please tell me mr. smarty pants, know it all, expert in all fields stem, what was the fuel source for the fire in wtc 7 that so weaken the entire superstructure of a 47 story building that it collapsed into it’s own footprint in a matter of seconds. oh and by the way the twin towers were engineered to be able withstand the impact of a passenger jet aircraft, stick that in your stem and smoke it, you ignorant fucking troll. have a nice day!

  10. roonaldo says:

    Hold on, there! My dear departed mother used to open stuck jar lids by running hot water on them.

    Recordings of that 47-storey building’s collapse show “The 50-Storey Woman” spreading flame upon the penthouse while hollering “Larry….Larry!” just before it collapses.

    TWBT is clearly on someth…err…on to something!
