US Refugee Policy, The Treaty of Jaffa and Qawwali Music
On today's show:
- The Syrian Community Network has helped resettle 14 families in the Chicago area and 1500 in the US. As part of “A Nation Engaged,” we look at U.S. refugee policy.
- Historian John Schmidt tells us about a Middle East Peace treaty that worked, at least in the short term: the Treaty of Jaffa.
- We get a preview performance of this weekend’s concert by Fareed Ayaz and Abu Muhammad Qawwal with Zeshan & the Transistors.
