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.
