A Report from Iraq on Today's Show

This morning Scott talked with Sami Rasouli - a man born in Iraq who lived and ran a successful business in Minnesota for over 30 years. In 2003 he returned to Iraq and was very disturbed by the conditions he saw there...it caused him to sell his business in Minneapolis and move back to Iraq to do whatever he could to rebuild the country. Based on the model of the Christian Peacemaker Team he created the Muslim Peacemaker Team.

Sami will be in Northern Minnesota - he'll speak at the Vermillion Community College in Ely Wednesday April 2nd at 7pm at the VCC Lecture Hall. He'll be in Grand Rapids Thursday April 3rd atat Davies Theater at Itasca Community College from 10:30-noon and at Community Presbyterian Church at 7pm that same evening.
