This is the 3rd episode of our Roots of Hatred series, and is titled “The Blood Libel”. Hear from volunteer presenters Valerie Emmott, Danyal Laskar and Madge Dresser, as they continue their series on Radio Salaam Shalom.
With the recent rise of the far-right in the UK and European elections, what’s the uneasy balance between democracy, free speech and hate speech? Does this say anything about intolerances and scapegoats in our modern world? How far back does Islamophobia go? Did anti-Semitism start in similar ways? What’s the story of the Saracen’s Head? How does a piece of ceramics found in a 21st century city centre development reveal the respect earned by Muslim leader Saladin in 12th century Bristol?

Radio Salaam Shalom’s studios buzzed with music and chat as host Lisa was joined by Carolyn, Farhan and Danyal.
Fresh from a private session with ex ‘Gitmo’ detainee Mozam Baig, Danyal talked about about Guantanamo Bay’s unexpected dialogue dividends.
We also hear the music of Noa, the sounds of Andy Roberts’ ‘Arabesq‘ sessions and share recollections of a trip to the European Media Diversity forum (Farhan and Lisa travelled to Prague after Radio Salaam Shalom was chosen for an EU study as one of Europe’s top 30 examples of media diversity).
