Ghanim Khalil

by Courage to Resist | 22:45 min.

In February of 2003, a month before the U.S. invasion of Iraq, Muslim GI Ghanim Khalil publicly declared his opposition to the impending attack at a widely-reported press conference. He was discharged from the National Guard several months later. He has been an anti-war activist since, focusing his work on addressing anti-Muslim bias. He spoke with Courage to Resist from his home in New York.
