Arab Radio 7-27-22, S2 E17: Guests Republican Paul Sophiea, Democrat Jim Zogby of the AAI

Hosted by the US Arab Radio Network and sponsored by Arab News

Today we are going to look at the politics of the Arab American community with two guests, Paul Sophiea a Republican and Conservative Michigan who has run for political office there in the past, and Jim Zogby a Democrat and president of the Arab American Institute based in Washington D.C. How do the two parties treat Arab American issues? What challenges do they face as candidates running in party elections.

In Segment 1: Paul Sophiea, Republican and conservative Arab American political activist, teacher and a business consultant in the Dearborn area and has served on various State boards. He was a former GOP candidate in Michigan's 15th State House District.

Segment 2: Jim Zogby, is President and co-founder the Arab American Institute, a Washington, D.C.-based organization which serves as the political and policy research arm of the Arab American community, in 1985 and continues to serve as its president. He is Director of Zogby Research Services, a firm that has conducted groundbreaking surveys across the Middle East.

Dr. Zogby has also been personally active in U.S. politics for many years; in 1984 and 1988 he served as Deputy Campaign manager and Senior Advisor to the Jesse Jackson Presidential campaign. In 1988, he led the first ever debate on Palestinian statehood at that year’s Democratic convention in Atlanta, GA. In 2000, 2008, and 2016 he served as an advisor to the Gore, Obama, and Sanders presidential campaigns.
