Does Middle East Unrest Go Beyond Film?
Originally published on Sat September 15, 2012 5:48 pm
This week, an American-made film mocking Islam sparked violent anti-U.S. protests across the Middle East and beyond. Weekends on All Things Considered host Guy Raz gets the latest from NPR's Leila Fadel who is in Benghazi, Libya. And while the unrest appears to be abating for now, the question becomes whether the backlash is about something deeper than the film. Raz talks about it with Steven Cook of the Council on Foreign Relations and Rami Khouri of Harvard's Belfer Center.
