with Chris Hedges
LeighaCohen on Dec 4, 2014
Chris Hedges and Loretta Napoleoni, author of The Islamic Phoenix spoke on December 2, 2014 at the New York Society for Ethical Culture and co-sponsored the event along with Seven Stories Press, New York Society for Ethical Culture, and AlterNet. Ted Rall was the moderator of the event.
Much of the evening gives one a brilliant clarification of how world policy starting after World War 1 carved up the Islamic State. The discussion then goes into how US foreign policy has interfered and created Islamic Fundamentalist Groups such as the Taliban and now a more state Islamic State driven group such as ISIL as a continuing reaction to outside interference within the region.
The video has opening statements by Chris Hedges and Loretta Napoleoni, then a dialogue between the two speakers. After 15 minutes Ted Rall asks audience questions to both speakers on topics including the history of ISIS, what the Caliphate is, and is ISIS accepted by other Islamic States?
