ISIS and the Middle East Generational Shift with Juan Cole

vor 4 Jahren

With ISIS rampaging through Syria and Iraq, and a generational shift in politics and religion happening across the Middle East, we dissect some of the political changes happening in the region with author Juan Cole. The dual advance of secularism and violent fundamentalism, islamophobia in the West, and the lure of ISIS to people from around the world are explored. Is a two-state solution possible between Israel and Palestinians? Elliot Hill hosts this uncensored Lip News interview.
