The Children of Abraham: A History of Conflict and Cooperation in the Middle East and the Roots of the Current Crisis

It seems that the only task harder than keeping track of the violence in the Middle East is explaining it. To the outside observer, the region’s politics and perpetual unrest are confounding and complex. This presentation will shed light on the roots of the conflict in the Middle East and provide a basic understanding of how it reached the crises it faces today, from Jerusalem to Egypt to Syria, to Iraq, and beyond.

Hosted by Tom Verde (M.A., Islamic Studies and Christian-Muslim Relations), an independent scholar and journalist who has lived in and traveled extensively throughout the Middle East, reporting on its culture and history.
