Christiane speaks to two powerful women trying to change the military justice system.
On AMANPOUR. tonight, Christiane will be interviewing former British prime minister, and now Middle East peace envoy, Tony Blair, about the breakdown of the peace process and how it may be possible to resume negotiations. Noted author and theologian Karen Armstrong will also join us to preview the International Charter for Compassion, debuting Nov. 12 worldwide. The Charter is a global initiative bringing together all faiths to redefine the golden rule: “Treat others as you wish to be treated”. Christiane will pose to both her and Rabbi David Saperstein questions about how this religious reinvigoration will impact modern moral dilemmas. There’s plenty of other international news this morning. Here are some perspectives on some other stories making news that resonate way beyond the headlines.
