Thinking Aloud
Social and Cultural Roots of Middle East Crises
Three dozen students at BYU are taking a course from Syrian-born archaeologist Amr al-Azm, who trained in Britain. The course, titled "Social and Cultural Roots of Middle East Crises," implies that the crisis du jour in the Middle East, whether it occurs in Kuwait or Lebanon, Israel or Iraq, is likely to be a symptom only. You can treat symptoms forever, but that's often like putting a Band-Aid on a gaping wound. Amr al-Azm is our next guest, sharing some of his views about just how far back Middle East conflicts go, on today's Thinking Aloud.—Original airdate: 9/7/2007
