The unrest in oil-rich Libya and Oman appear to be affecting the energy market. Oil is trading at its highest levels in 2.5 years. We’ll talk about fluctuations in the energy market and their potential effect on the tenuous economic recovery with Antonia Juhasz, director of the Energy Program at the Global Exchange and author of The Tyranny of Oil: the World's Most Powerful Industry—and What We Must Do To Stop It. We’ll also hear from Rabbi Michael Melchior, formerly a member of Israel’s Knesset, about the future of Jerusalem and the peace process amidst the transforming Arab world.
