Islamic Center and Mosque at Ground Zero

About a decade ago, a friend and I visited the infamous Dachau concentration camp, just outside Munich Germany.   As a Jew the experience was intense and overwhelming.  We visited the barracks, gas chambers, crematorium, and later the cemetery where untold remains of hundreds of thousands of our people are buried. 

The last place we visited was a small chapel.  It was tastefully built in a way that you would not know it was not original to the site. Although it was clearly a church, perhaps run by a local monastic order, it was appropriate and welcoming to all.

The theme of today's show - hosted by Bill Resnick (on the left) -  could aptly be called "South of the Border." Virtually all of the show turns its eyes to South American politics, but also the harsh realities of humanitarian aid.  It features South American rebel-music by Intli-illimani, which Bill discusses in the end. Below are links to the other portions of the show.

1. Jan Haaken and Fran Michel review Oliver Stone's new movie about the South American political landscape, "South of the Border."

2. Bill interviews Mark Weisbrot, co-author of South of the Border, about the rise and status of South American popular governments.
