The United States and the Middle East: Intervention, Reaction, and Hope for Change

Speaker: Dr. Stephen Zunes (Professor of Politics and International Relations, University of San Francisco)

For decades, the United States has intervened militarily in the Middle East and provided important military, diplomatic, and economic support for dictatorial regimes and occupation armies, resulting not only in enormous human suffering, but a dangerous and destabilizing backlash by Islamist extremists. Fortunately, there are growing civil society movements in the region nonviolently challenging both Western imperialism and religious extremism as well as movements in the United States working to change foreign policies which fail to support freedom, democracy, rule of law, and our long-term best interests
