The recent U.S. airstrike on Syria shows a fast-worsening crisis in the Middle East:
• Russian, Syria and Iran line up on one side.
• The U.S., Saudi Arabia, most Sunni Arab states and Israel on the other.
• The ISIS caliphate faces encirclement and defeat, but Christians and other religious minorities face ethnic cleansing throughout the region.
On April 13th, Middle East commentator Tom Gross lead a discussion on the significance and consequences of these latest actions and to discuss the following two topics:
“Israel, America and Europe in the Trump Era”, and,
“Intolerance Against Christians and Jews: Is There a Safe Future for Minorities in the Muslim Middle East?”
