MOSCOW, April 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Zizek and American intellectual David Horowitz debate the left-wing influence on global politics, the Israel-Palestine question, the future of Europe and the WikiLeaks controversy in the second episode of Julian Assange's "The World Tomorrow" on RT.
