A 5 minute lesson about the Middle East and Israel, worthwhile for everyone to watch, including the Arab Street and academia around the world.

The Middle East Problem

Dennis Prager (born August 2, 1948) is an American syndicated radio talk show host, syndicated columnist, author, and public speaker. He is noted for conservative political and social views emanating from Judeo-Christian, Jewish, and American values. He defines the latter as E Pluribus Unum, In God We Trust, and Liberty (which includes small government). He is a Media Fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University. He taught Jewish and Russian History at Brooklyn College, and was a Fellow at the Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs, where he did his graduate work at the Russian Institute (now the Harriman Institute) and Middle East Institute from 1970-1972. He has lectured in 46 states and on six continents and traveled in 98 countries and the 50 U.S. states. He speaks French, Russian, and Hebrew, and has lectured in Russian in Russia and in Hebrew in Israel. An avid classical music lover, he periodically conducts orchestras in Southern California.

The Dennis Prager Show

Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch said the Muslims emigrate to spread Islam. It is written in the koran that Islam Supremacy is to rule the world. Following is an excerpt from Spencer at Texas A&M on "Is Islam a religion of peace?"

"The question before us tonight is 'Is Islam a religion of peace?' which is obviously not just an abstract theological or religious question but a question of pressing political moment, and everyone has an opinion on it," Spencer said. "I don't, actually. I think that the best way to answer the question is to go to the sources themselves and not to rely on what various spokesmen will tell you, but go straight to Quran, the Islamic holy book, and to the teachings and example of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, and see what they say."

Reading from the Quran, Spencer discussed parts that evoked tolerance and parts that demand followers to "slay the pagan."

"How is one going to understand balance between, like Chapter 109 which enjoins tolerance and a chapter like nine, verse 29, which enjoins warfare and subjugation?" Spencer said. "Once again, I would say we need to go to Islamic authorities to answer that question."
