Author: NOAH FELDMAN, Adjunct Senior Fellow, CFR
Feldman examines the history behind the increasingly popular call for establishment of sharia--the law of the traditional Islamic state--in the modern Muslim world.
A recent CFR Religion and Foreign Policy Symposium, made possible by the generosity of the Henry Luce Foundation, examined how the different forms of Christianity and Islam may have helped, and sometimes hindered, the development of free and open societies.
Watch video, listen to audio, and read transcripts of symposium sessions.
Interviewee: VALI R. NASR, Adjunct Senior Fellow for Middle Eastern Studies, CFR
Nasr says the fighting in southern Iraq amounts to a power struggle between pro and anti-U.S. Shiite militias. The country’s Shiite prime minister, he says, is "irrelevant."
