Update from the Middle East - Dr Daniel Pipes

Daniel Pipes is President of the Middle East Forum and Taube Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution of Stanford University. His website, DanielPipes.org is one of the Internet’s most accessed sources of specialized information on the Middle East and Islam. The Boston Globe states that “If Pipes’ admonitions had been heeded, there might never have been a 9/11” and the Washington Post deems him “perhaps the most prominent U.S. scholar on radical Islam.” He received his A.B. (1971) and Ph.D. (1978) from Harvard University.

We are pleased to welcome Dr Pipes back to the CIS to offer his insights on the latest from the Middle East. With Hilary Clinton’s recent troubled visit to Egypt and Syria embroiled in a civil war, this event will offer a timely opportunity for the audience to ask questions of one of the world’s leading Middle East scholars.
