During the second hour, we re-broadcast an interview that Chairman Omali Yeshitela conducted on August 26, 2001 with Palestinian Legislative Council member Qais Abdul Kareem, also known as Abu Leila. Comrade Abu Leila is a founding member and long-standing leader of the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a secular socialist organization, created in 1969. In light of the U.S. government's current threats to escalate its brutal military aggression against the Iraqi people, we share this historic discussion with you today. The African Socialist International condemns this ongoing colonial aggression being carried out by the regime of U.S. President Barack Obama.
