Last Friday, multiple coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris left over 120 people dead, leaving France and the Western world reeling with shock. We start the show with a live report from Paris followed by analysis and perspective on the events from the Arab and Muslim world by Professor Hatem Bazian, co-editor and founder of the Islamophobia Studies Journal. In the second half, we get reaction on the second democratic debate that took place at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa on Saturday.
