Voices of the Middle East and North Africa - September 22, 2004

Samuel Huntington is believed to have formalized the new policy of the US toward Middle Eastern countries. In his book “Clash of civilizations” written in 1993, the coming confrontations and wars were predicted or rather suggested. We need to examine Huntington’s work and motivations for constructing such a frame work. To do this task we have interviewed Dr. Shahid Alam the professor of economics at northeastern university, Boston. He is the author of “Poverty from the wealth of nations”.

This month is the anniversary of 4 important events for the Middle East. The source of these events is the use of terror by the governments. Governments have been the main source of terrorizing the population all over the world. The governments usually do it by economic or social policies. But there is also the naked violence as well. We will cover 4 events from 2 different countries. The first one is the case of Israel. A historical event is presented by David Himmelstein that goes back to the time of creation of Israel and the assassination of Folk Bernadotte. The next case is about Iranian government and assassination of the Leaders of Iranian Kurdish democratic party
