Muslims, the Veil, and the West

From the NPR program The Diane Rehm Show

Since top British politicians called the Muslim veil a mark of separation, new debate has exploded over whether Muslims should assimilate more or Western cultures should better accommodate their customs.

Guests include:

Karen Dabdoub, executive director, Council on American-Islamic Relations in Cincinnati, Ohio

Mona Eltahawy, commentator; director, Progressive Muslim Union of North America

Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State and author of "Piety & Politics" (Harmony Books)
