Roundtable on Arab Spring

29.09.2011

PSSI organized a roundtable discussion with Professor Barry Rubin, Director of Global Research in International Affairs (GLORIA) Center. The topic of his speech was How the Arab spring of 2011 is translating into a new regional line-up and set of crisis for 2012. Professor Rubin explained his view on the new geopolitical reality at the Middle East following the changes in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and deteriorating relations between Israel and Turkey. He pointed out that the major threat facing the Middle East today is a growing influence of radical Islamism, which is probably going to become a dominant ideology in Egypt. He also criticized the behavior of the Western countries, especially the USA under Obama administration, which spent most of their political capital on appeasing the radicals, instead of cooperating and supporting the moderate countries in the region. Professor Rubin also stressed that the best protection against radicalism is traditional Islam promoted by the monarchies.
