Worldviews of Islam
speaker: Raja Tanas

Following the introduction of three overlapping maps that clarify the meaning of an Arab, a Muslim, and a Middle Easterner, this presentation focuses on the factors that shaped the Middle East region since the demise of the Ottoman Empire in 1918 to present. These factors include the end of the Muslim Caliphate, the rise of the state system, the discovery of oil, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the resurgence of Islam in the late 1970s. The presentation concludes with a discussion on the grievances that the Middle East people have against the West, and the prospects for peace in the future
