LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

On December 20th, The Markaz in partnership with the Los Angeles World Affairs Council presents a major public forum on “Ending Saudi Extremism,” which will look at several critical factors with respect to the U.S.-Saudi-Iran relationship, among them Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen, where 14 million people are on the verge of starvation; the unresolved question of journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s assassination; the U.S.-Saudi-Israel triangle calling for war with Iran; and the extremist Wahhabi sect which has changed the way Islam is preached around the world.

Our guest speakers for this forum are author Terence Ward, speaking on his new book, The Wahhabi Code: How the Saudis Spread Extremism Globally (Arcade 2018), and moderator Ani Zonneveld, the founder and president of Muslims for Progressive Values. This forum is the first in a new Markaz series entitled The Bustany-Kasem Freedom Forum, in honor of Arab American luminaries Don Bustany and Caey Kasem, long-time advocates for peace and freedom for the Middle East. The Bustany-Kasem Friendship Forum is dedicated to the progressive search for peace. It will be introduced by the daughter of the late Casey Kasem, Kerri Kasem.
