On today’s program, Vince interviews author and activist, Dr. Dahlia Wasfi.
Dr. Dahlia Wasfi was born in the United States in 1971 to an American Jewish mother and an Iraqi Muslim father. After graduating from Swarthmore College with a B.A. in Biology in 1993, she earned her medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1997 but left medicine in 2002. Today, she works for social justice. Dr. Wasfi has made two trips to Iraq to visit her extended family since the 2003 “Shock and Awe” invasion, including a three month stay in Basrah in the spring of 2006. She is an activist in support of ending the US-led and US-funded occupations (military and economic) of Iraq, Afghanistan, and Palestine.
Dahlia is currently working on a book that humanizes the victims of American and Israeli policy “From the Nile to the Euphrates.” On Twitter, her username is @liberatethis
