The Middle East in the Era of Trump

The Middle East is in turmoil – the Syrian War rages, Israel continues its murder of Palestinians, Egypt’s military regime has tightened its grip and Saudi Arabia is starving and bombing the people of Yemen. U.S. imperial interests, in competition with Russia and China, are at the foundation of this bloody situation and conditions have only worsened with the Trump regime in power.

Prof. As’ad AbuKhalil is Professor of Political Science at Cal State Stanislaus and curator of the Angry Arab News Service (, author of numerous books, including his most recent The Battle For Saudi Arabia: Royalty, Fundamentalism, and Global Power.
