Night 3

A Collapsing Middle East:
New Forces, New Threats, New Hopes

The Arab Spring felt like a new beginning . . . until the revolutions were taken over by dark forces. Middle Eastern borders, regimes and nations as we knew them disintegrated, causing regional chaos and sending millions of refugees across Europe. Now, new forces, and even new nations, are arising.  Despite all the dangers, might we continue seeing surprising new alliances and the prospect of hope?

Itai Anghel: 

A 3-Night Series

A 3-night series with Itai Anghel, the youngest-ever recipient of the Sokolov Prize, Israel’s Pulitzer Prize.

Itai Anghel is a reporter’s reporter who refuses to play it safe in his quest to understand the world he brings to his viewers on the program Uvda, the Israeli equivalent of 60 Minutes. 

Since the world he wants his viewers to comprehend includes many of the most dangerous places on earth, he’s spent 30 years hopping from hot spot to hot spot, from Afghanistan to Rwanda, Gaza, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq and the Islamic State (where he was the only Israeli journalist to report from inside). An intrepid journalist who dares to venture to places  where the line between good guys and bad guys — even between victims and war criminals — isn’t easily drawn, he works from the belief that talking to all sides of a conflict is a necessity, not a strategy.

Itai joins us for three stand-alone discussions to speak about — and present exclusive video footage of — Kurdish women guerrillas in Syria looking out for Israel; an Egyptian who dreams of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.; the people who have vowed to burn all those hopes . . . and what we should know about the current situation in the Middle East.
