Blood Brothers #138: Decolonisation, U.S. hegemony, and the Muslim world

In this episode of the Blood Brothers Podcast, Dilly Hussain speaks with the prominent Palestinian American scholar of decolonisation and Islamic theology, and the co-founder of Zaytuna College, Dr. Hatem Bazian.

Topics of discussion include:

  • What have pro-Palestine student encampments achieved?
  • Institutional decolonisation and actual decolonisation.
  • Pride month and LGBTQ support for Palestine, and support for Palestine at Glastonbury Festival. Is the mainstreaming of the Palestinian cause a positive development?
  • Who are the real allies and gatekeepers of the Palestinian cause? Palestinians? Arabs? Muslims? Socialists? Anti-war left?
  • ⁠U.S. hegemony in the Muslim world and American Muslim patriotism. Is there a conflict between the two?
  • ⁠Gulf normalisation with Israel, Arab/Muslim world’s inaction over Gaza, and boycotting.
  • ⁠Muslim leadership in the west calling for normalisation with Israel via “Abrahamic” interfaith.
