  • Description:

    First Topic - Is the University of MI Funding Islam?

    The University of Michigan-Dearborn plans to spend $25,000 for foot-washing stations, making it easier for Muslim students to practice their religion but sparking questions about the separation of church and state. Is this accommodating religion or offering special privileges? The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights weighs in.

     Second Topic – The end of the PLO?

    Hamas fighters have overrun the headquarters of their rival Fatah's Preventive Security force, as factional fighting in Gaza continues. The capture of the Preventive Security headquarters is seen as a major step forward in Hamas' attempts to complete its takeover of Gaza. What does this violence mean for the PLO, the state of Israel and the future of peace in the Middle East? Former Israeli ambassador Dore Gold joins us from Jerusalem.
