Islamic Uprising: A Global Update
The face of the Mideast is changing almost on a daily basis. This is true also of both western and northern Europe. In this global update on the recent changes in the Islamic world, Avi Lipkin, our Jewish source for perspective, brings clarity to the complicated geopolitical events that face the world today. Are the recent moves to throw off the dictatorial regimes in the Islamic dominated Mideast really bringing us closer to a "democratic" geopolitical environment? Are the moves toward tolerance of the aggressive changes instigated by Islamic influence taking place in the industrialized countries of the west having unintended consequences? No matter which side of the subject you support, what is clear is that there seems to be a cultural and geopolitical collision on our immediate horizon.
