Is the Middle East Going Through Its 30 Years War?
By Dr. Ibrahim Al-Marashi (In English)

About this Talk:

The conflict between Shi'a and Sunnis, Iran and Saudi Arabia, has been described as the Middle East's 30 Years War, referring to the European wars among Catholic and Protestant powers from 1618-1648. This talk will examine the similarities and differences, and analyze what the current conflict means for the future of the region.
