CCWA kicks off our 2014-15 season with a timely examination of the situation in the Middle East. Until recently, ISIS (the Islamic State) was an unknown entity. Now ISIS is headline news and a greater threat to the world than Al-Qaida. ISIS’ ambition is to establish an Islamic caliphate. Can they be stopped? What can the U.S. and our NATO allies do to stop these extremists? Dr. James Zogby will discuss conditions in the region and prospects for success in destroying ISIS.
