Earlier this summer tensions exploded in the Middle East as Israel defied a flotilla sent from Turkey to Gaza to break Israel's shipping blockade. Some think Turkey's political atmosphere is shifting from one of established secularism to one in step with the Islamism of its neighbors, notably Iran. Join new Discovery Institute international relations fellow Claire Berlinski as she provides a revealing look at the Middle East.
Ms. Berlinski lives in Istanbul. She is the author of Menace in Europe: Why the Continent's Crisis Is America's, Too and There Is No Alternative: Why Margaret Thatcher Matters.
The event will be held at the Discovery Institute, located at 208 Columbia Street in downtown Seattle, on Wednesday, September 8, from 4:30-6:00 p.m. A selection of regional wines and cheeses will precede the event. Though we cannot validate, parking is available in the Millennium Tower Garage (719 2nd Avenue - entrance on Columbia). Should you choose to park elsewhere, please verify the garage hours as many of the adjacent parking lots in our neighborhood close at 6:00 pm. Our new location is also metro accessible.
To RSVP, please contact Mollie Tschida at (206) 292-0401 ext. 111 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
