Resistance & persistence ? Ramzy Baroud, non-resident senior research fellow, CIGA, Istanbul Zaim University
In all Abrahamic religions the proportionality of violence is a major tenet and Judaism is no exception. According to the Talmudic interpretation, the Second Temple was destroyed as a punishment for gratuitous hatred, something which seems, once again, to be driving events in the Middle East. Can religious teachings offer any respite from the bloodshed and retaliation engulfing the Holy Land? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Ramzy Baroud, a non-resident senior research fellow at the Centre for Islam and Global Affairs at Istanbul Zaim University.
