JPC Senior Director Shoshana Bryen appeared with Jonathan Schanzer, Vice President of FDD on the Middle East Round Table show with Jerry Gordon of The New English Review and Mike Bates on 1330AM WBBY radio. In a wide ranging discussion of Middle East issues, she focused attention on the larger Sunni-Shia war for Islamist supremacy and Russia's decision to support the Shia side, including Syria, for fear of Sunni upheaval in the Caucasus and elsewhere. She also noted that Turkey's financial and political support for Hamas - a U.S. designated terrorist organization - should make it eligible for inclusion in the list of state sponsors of terrorism, but that the administration is unlikely to do more than object quietly.
