Feb. 10, 2011

It’s the 17th day of anti-government protests in Egypt and many believe the Egyptian leadership is ready to make some major concessions.  Ahmed Rehab, executive director of the Chicago chapter for the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), checks in with another update from Cairo.  We'll also get analysis from Cherif Bassiouni, president emeritus of DePaul University's International Human Rights Institute. And the Middle East Institute’s Joseph Kéchichian is just back from a trip to Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman and the United Arab Emirates. He tells us what impact the current protests in Egypt are having across the Arab world.  We'll also take your questions and comments. Call us at 312-832-3124.
