In our first hour… A look at how the world’s religious leaders teach us about war, and how we apply the lesson. We’ll talk with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author Chris Hedges ("Losing Moses on the Freeway: The Ten Commandments in America"); Muslim thinker and theologian Hamza Yusuf, founder of the Hayward, CA-based Zaytuna Institute, and independent photographer Kael Alford, whose work documenting the American bombing of Baghdad and the impact of the war on Iraq, is featured in the new book "Unembedded." All three of our guests will participate in the Saturday March 11th event in Berkeley: "Does God Love War?" The free event is at 7:00 p.m. at the martin Luther King Jr Middle School Auditorium, 1781 Rose Street.
In our second hour… First, two veterans events, marking the 3rd anniversary next week of the US invasion of Iraq, then… Iran, India, and Pakistan: The Bush Administration’s foes and favorites in nuclear policy.
