Understanding: Bridging the Gulf Between Arab and Western Cultures

haneenalshujairy3October 10, 2014 – Segment 5

We listen back to a conversation with Haneen Alshujairy, who fled her home in Iraq with her family in 2003, and Justin Sirois, a writer living in Baltimore. Alshujairy and Sirois are co-founders of the Understanding Campaign, which seeks to teach everyone in the world one word of Arabic:  Fhm (fuh-hem’), which literally means “understanding.” Their hope is that by learning one simple word, people can begin to bridge the gulf between Arab and Western cultures.
