Religious Minorities in the Middle East -- In the wake of the Arab Spring, new governments are forming and the rights of Christians, Jews, and minority Muslim groups hang in the balance. The program reports on the Jewish population in Tunisia, and how they're faring under a new Islamist government there. The show also hears from the Christian community in Egypt and their reactions to a new president, and provides a primer on Alawites, the minority Muslim sect to which Syria's president Bashar al-Assad belongs.
