Since our launch in early 2007, the co-hosting team of Javid Latif and Tal Lesham have been an integral part of our Muslim-Jewish programmes. Anyone listening to their show “The Abraham Nexus” would know that their conversations revealed a growing mutual respect for and awareness of their own – and each other’s – opinions, ideas and values.
Before Tal headed off for pastures new (ISLANDS new, actually), he and Javid joined up for one last recording session in the Radio Salaam Shalom studios.
Joined by several of their colleagues, Tal and Javed look back on their time together as “Abraham Nexus” co-presenters. In this show, they also featured an interview with a leading dietary specialist who looked at the issues of Diabetes during Ramadhan, discovered the thought-provoking ideas of Turkish Muslim thinker Adnan Oktar/Harun Yahya, and shared the stories of the Jewish-Palestinian Change Night hosted by Libby and Len Traubman’ Living Room Dialogues group in California.
We wish Tal all the best in his new island home – we’re sure Javid’s already booked his beach trip too.
