Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - History Professor Sholmo Sand; An hommage to novelist Tayeb Salih

In this week’s program, Khalil Bendib speaks with History Professor Shlomo Sand of Tel Aviv University about his new book “When and Why the Jewish People was invented.” a surprising best seller in Israel which challenges the conventional wisdom according to which today's Jews are a national group with a biological connection to the original Jews of Judea and Israel 2000 years ago.

Later in the program, Dr. Alan Mikhail is in conversation with Professor Roger Allen about the work of the great Sudanese novelist Tayeb Salih who passed away on February 18th a month ago. Tayeb Salih was one of the most respected Arab novelists of the 20th century.

And before we close, our regular commentator, the Prez in the Fez, weighs in on the subject of our first Latino president, Barack Obama. (You heard right, our first Latino president.)
