The History & Politics Department Presents:
Arab Springs: The Heavy Burden the Middle East Conflict Has Imposed on Both Arabs & Israelis
April 9, 2013 —
The Middle East Conflict has imposed heavy burdens on both Arabs and Israelis, but in a year when violence has erupted across many lands in this region for other reasons, it might be time not only to audit the costs of this protracted dispute but also to survey who actually pays and in what currency. And now with the on-going "Arab Spring" we need to ponder the implications for the region at large from the rise of Islamist regimes to collapsing dictatorship of Syria's Assad to the nuclear threat of Iran.
