August 5, 2012
The civil war in Syria has raged for over 16 months. Rebels have clashed with the government forces of President Bashar al-Assad resulting in the displacement of much of the country’s population. One man who has been left homeless by the conflict is Fr. Paolo Dall’Oglio, an Italian Jesuit who spent the last three decades living in Syria. He was expelled from the country by the government after speaking out against them and lending his support to the uprising. In the midst of a North America wide campaign to raise awareness for the suffering of the Syrian people, he joins host Stefan Slovak in studio.
