Iraqi Peacemaker, Mazen Alsaqa, Jan. 16-22

International Peacemaker of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) Mazen Alsaqa is my guest. He is a Christian refugee from Iraq now living in Michigan.

In the Fall of 2011 he visited East Tennessee to tell his story of the plight of Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq. Read more about him at Shuck and Jive, here, here, and here.

Here are articles about him in the Johnson City Press, the Tusculum College News, the Greeneville Sun, and here is information about the situation of Christians in Iraq.
