As fighting rages between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon. The question now is whether the world will cobble together a cease-fire and whether an international force will move into the region. Jack first talks with Pamela Falk, CBS News Correspondent at the UN to discuss what efforts the UN Security Council is making to address these concerns.

Jack then turns to the issue of the growing humanitarian crisis in the region. It is estimated that as many as 800,000 will be displaced because of the bombing campaign. What do you do with these people? Where do they get food? Shelter? What would you do if you had to flee your home with nothing except what you have on your back? Jack speaks with Stephanie Bunker, spokesperson for the United Nations Office for the Coordination for Humanitarian Affairs.

Imagine being targeted by the police for no other purpose but for the fact that you are black. Listen to the story of Pastor Terry Williams of the First Community Baptist Church. According to the Pastor, this even happened to him in the last couple of days.

Rabbi S. Binyomin Ginsberg, Dean of Torah Academy in St. Louis Park joins the program to talk about the difference between right and wrong and good and evil. Are there such things as moral absolutes. You decide.

Finally, Charlotte Mangin, a filmmaker followed a group of 60 women known as the "Class of 2006." This women are the first in the Muslim world to be trained as religious leaders. They are in Morocco.
