Lecture and speaker information

What we see happening in the region – Syria in particular – is not an accident or a local conflict between few tribes. Seeds of the conflict have been planted decades ago and the Arab Spring is the fertile environment to attend to the growing seeds. This is a problem that has the potential to destabilize world peace.

 

Born in the Jerusalem area and educated in the Middle East and USA, Dr. Sumrain is host and producer of the Arabic Radio program “Breeze of the East” on WorldFM 101.7 on Saturdays from 8:30-11 AM.

Our meetings are free and always open to the public. Invite your friends!
