The Egyptian political commentator says nations have started fighting “the enemy from within.”

In this episode, Ellie Cohanim talks with Egyptian political commentator Nervana Mahmoud about the evolution towards tolerance and co-existence in her home country of Egypt, as well as other countries in the region.
