Meeting at the Library: Jack Segal presents “What’s Wrong with the Middle East?”
7 p.m….610 Woodmere Ave., Traverse City
ISIS, al-Qaida, Assad, “Charlie Hebdo,” Iran…Millions more refugees, hundreds of thousands of people killed, nuclear negotiations stalled, fanatical movements growing…
The always-volatile Middle East seems to be getting worse by the day, and the U.S. and our allies seem unable to do much about it. Join Jack Segal for a 30-minute talk about the multiple dilemmas facing policy-makers, followed by your comments, questions and answers.
