Here’s what’s coming up this weekend on State of Belief Radio –
The White House hosts a high-profile Summit on countering violent extremism. Muslim Advocates’ Legal Director Glenn Katon was there, and we’ll get his firsthand impressions – as well as an evaluation of what the next steps need to be.
Also, the ongoing controversy over House Speaker John Boehner’s secret invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. With the speech to Congress coming up, what are the political implications of the address – and of threats by the President and some Democrats to not attend?
