FROM THIS EPISODE

Juan Cole teaches at the University of Michigan, has written extensively on the Middle East on his blog Informed Comment, and has authored several books on the region and Islam. In his conversation with Robert Scheer, Cole discusses what he sees as the over-reporting of Islamic terrorism in the United States and an unfounded association between violence and the religion. They talk about President Trump's stated interest in re-setting relations with Russia and whether that could be a positive development. And Cole tells Scheer that in spite of many attempts for peace in the Middle East, he sees a bleak future for the "stateless" Palestinian people.
