The United States vs. the Evil Caliphate

The Phony Clash of Civilizations

Since 9/11, many have cast the Global War on Terrorism as the forces of democracy and freedom pitted against an emerging and increasingly dangerous “Islamofascism”. Author and editor Robert Dreyfuss contends that during the Cold War (and since), the forces of the Islamic right have been erstwhile allies of the United States.

Dreyfuss, author of Devil's Game: How the United States Helped Unleash Fundamentalist Islam, will discuss the lessons our shared history offers us in dealing with the war in Iraq, the showdown with Iran, and efforts to spread democracy in the Middle East. Please join us for a lively discussion on how we arrived at the current situation in Middle Eastern geopolitics, and what the future portends.
