Last Call Thursday | Listen to this entire show:

Laila Abdelaziz is the Florida Field Director for Emerge USA, a group involved with boosting the civic culture of Muslim, South Asian and Arab American communities. They were very involved in participating in the recent 2012 election.

As a student at USF, Leila talked about youth's involvement in political life as well. And as a Palestinian-American (she is also Russian), she provided her perspective on the events in the Middle East this week, where Israel has attacked in the Gaza Strip, responding to bombs being fired over the border by Hamas into Southern Israel.
