From last Thursday's Edina Sun Current:
Sami Rasouli, founder of Muslim Peacemaker Teams in Iraq, will host two Edina speaking engagements about his experiences in the war-torn country this week.
At 9:30 a.m. Saturday, April 14, Rasouli, who is an Iraqi-American, will speak in the second-floor meeting room at the Southdale Library, 7001 York Ave. S. He will give a presentation at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, at Good Samaritan Methodist Church, 5730 Grove St.
Rasouli owned a Minneapolis eatery for more than two decades but left to create Muslim Peacekeepers in his native Iraq. He will speak on his experiences over the past eight months as a witness to the struggles in Iraq, and will also touch on other issues in the Middle East.
The Middle East Peace Now group sponsors Saturday's event, while Tuesday night's session is sponsored by Northwest Edina Democrats.
Actually, Spotty, it is a group called the "Northwest Edina Democrats" that is sponsoring the event at Good Samaritan.
Maybe, but Spotty bets there are Methodists in that crowd.
