The Middle East Studies Mess

Essay: The Middle East Studies Mess.

“The Middle East is in chaos. After four years of Syrian civil war, there are now more refugees and displaced persons seeking to escape violence than at any point since World War II. …

Pundits and politicians whose introduction to the Middle East comes from Middle Eastern studies programs in Australian or United States universities might be surprised by the current shape of the region. After all, after preaching for decades that Israel and perhaps the United States were at the root of regional problems, it now is evident that Israel is the only truly stable oasis in the greater Middle East and North Africa.”

Medical companies cheered the Supreme Court ruling last week that kept the spigot turned on by upholding the premium subsidies that millions of Americans rely on to make coverage affordable.

TonyR:

Good for Reelz!

Univision’s decision to deprive the female contestants this opportunity to appear on national television just to punish Trump shows a callous disregard toward the women who participate in this event. Shame on Univision for canceling on such short notice.

Originally posted on TIME:

The Donald Trump co-owned Miss USA pageant has found a new broadcast partner after being dumped by NBC: Reelz announced Thursday that it will broadcast the event on July 12 from Baton Rogue, Louisiana.

“The decision on the part of Reelz to acquire the rights to the Miss USA Pageant was based on our belief that this special event, and the women who compete in it, are an integral part of American tradition,” Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of Reelz, said in a statement. “As one of only a few independent networks, we decided to exercise our own voice and committed ourselves to bringing this pageant to American viewers everywhere.
