The Optimistic Muslim

The Optimistic Muslim – What’s REALLY going on in Egypt?

With newfound Arabian “People Power” overthrowing despots throughout the Middle East, Egypt’s own revolution remains the largest, and the model for revolutions to come.
What REALLY happened? Who were the players behind the scenes, and where do THEY want to take Egypt in the coming days?
And what do the changes Egypt is going through mean for the rest of the Middle East, and the rest of the world?
Join The Optimistic Muslim as he talks to Dr. Abdallah Schleifer, proud Egyptian-American, long-time Professor of Journalism at the American University in Cairo, previous NBC Middle-East bureau chief, and Jewish convert to Islam about all these questions, and more!
