Episode Summary

EDIT
The Shi'a in the Modern Arab World
AIRED:
Yitzhak Nakash, one of the world's foremost experts on Shi'ism, contends that the most important political players in Iraq today are the Shi'i majority who constitute sixty percent of the population of Iraq. In his new book, Dr. Nakash traces the role of Shi'ism in the struggle that is raging today among Muslims for the soul of Islam. He shows that in contrast to the growing militancy among Sunni groups since the 1990s, Shi'is have shifted their focus from confrontation to accommodation with the West.moreless
