Weekend Hour 1:  Booby-Trapped Dead Bodies
"Death to America!  Death to Israel! " This is what Islamic Jihadist regimes proclaim. ' "The events in Tunisia and Egypt are the sign of the Islamic Awakening' and 'an Islamic liberation movement' -- these were the [recent] words of Iran's Supreme Leader Khomenei "

David Heilbron Price joins Tamar and talks about the European Union's need for oil and energy, and thus their lack of evenhandedness in the Arab-Israeli conflict, and why Europe is asleep and seems to support the revolution in Egypt.  See his very informative article , "

lslam awakes: Europe falls asleep, comatose on its Energy addiction. "

Also, just who ARE our enemies Israel and the West are fighting?  Scientist, researcher, and former IDF army sapper, Mordechai Ben Menachem describes his time doing army intel and sapper operations against terrorists in Gaza back in the 1970's.  He writes in THIS article   No Heroes in This Story! Why Does Egypt Matter

"In the army in 1970, I served in Gaza.  My direct commander was Arik Sharon.  I still vividly remember a basic lesson taught by him.  We had Druse trackers in our unit (it was a special operations and intelligence unit).  One day, we caught a terrorist that had just murdered an entire family of Gazan Arabs by slitting the throats of the children and hanging them upside-down in front of their parents, and then killing the parents (their crime was that the father operated an ice crème concession on the beach that the guys from Tunis desired).

Our tracker wanted to beat the miscreant for information about his accomplices.  Arik stopped him.  He said, “if you want to convince him to tell a story, don’t insult him in public, never insult; do anything (that I don’t see) but never insult him openly.” 

Ben Menachem tells us what we need to know about Egypt and the region's terrorists and how they work.  Warning:  Graphic descriptions of terror acts.
Weekend Hour 2:  Days of Rage Sweep the Middle East
Ron Mauro from World  talks about the planned 'Days of Rage' demonstrations sweeping across the middle east, and who might be behind these revolutions.  He also informs us of mysterious explosions that went off at three pipelines near Qom, cutting the flow of gasoline in Iran on February 11. A local government official said the explosions were not caused by mechanical failures.  Mauro writes:  "Qom is the site of that hidden nuclear facility that can house 3,000 centrifuges­not nearly enough for a domestic energy program, but enough for a nuclear bomb. "  So, who is really behind these targeted attacks?  Could it be Israel?

Also, investigative reporter, author and radio show hostBarry Chamish shows that U.S. President Barack Obama met with the terrorist Muslim Brotherhood organization at the White House just 3 months before the revolution in Egypt.  Why?  Did he tacitly accept or even help to set up Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's overthrow? Chamish shares some disturbing details.  A not to miss show!
