Los Angeles has one of the largest immigrant populations in the United States. So when conflicts arise anywhere in the world, they instantly reflect here. Such is the case here with the Israeli-Palestinian differences, originating halfway around the globe, but having a huge effect right here in Southern California. Today, our program will look into the attitudes of local Muslim and Jewish populations. And how the Human Relations Commission tries to the ease the tensions and improve relations between these groups.
