Cover to Cover with Jack Foley – January 11, 2012

Today’s show is a discussion of the Lebanese/Swedish superstar singer, Maher Zain. Jack reads an article written by his son Sean and published in “The Atlantic Monthly” (http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2011/08/maher-zains-hip-but-pious-soundtrack-to-the-arab-spring/243191/). Zain, writes Sean Foley, “represents a new generation of Arabs: young people who want a new society and a new nizam (political system) in which Arabs no longer have to choose between modernity and Islam, and where neither Islam nor the West can be used to justify autocracy.”
