Inside the Syrian Revolution and What the Left Must Do

Dr. Yasser MunifA Conversation with Yasser Munif: Inside the Syrian Revolution and What the Left Must Do

I was fortunate enough to have Dr. Yasser Munif, professor at Emerson College, call into The Declaration radio show tonight. He has recently visited Syria, witnessed the revolution there, and has spoken and written about it (including an interview with scholar Nigel Gibson at Jadaliyya.) We talked about what he saw, the troubles facing revolutionaries in Syria, the very oppositional distinction between revolutionaries and jihadists, and more. And we talked about the Left’s perception of what’s going on, and how so many are getting it wrong on Syria.
