In a Front Page Symposium, Kenneth Levin, a clinical instructor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and author of The Oslo Syndrome: Delusions of a People Under Siege; Nancy Kobrin, an affiliated professor to the University of Haifa, Arabist, psychoanalyst and author of the upcoming book, The Sheikh’s New Clothes: The Naked Truth About Islamic Suicide Terrorism (which was pulled from publication by Looseleaf Law because they feared retaliation by Muslims following the Pope’s comments); Peter Raddatz, a German scholar of Islamic Studies, co-author of the renowned “Encyclopaedia of Islam,” and author of From Allah to Terror? Jihad and the Western Deformation, Allah’s Veil, The Turkish Danger, and Allah and the Jews; David Gutmann, Emeritus professor of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences at North-Western University Medical School in Chicago; and I discuss these questions: “Why are Jews in particular called these names by Arabs and Muslims? What gratification is involved when one needs to turn others into animal form?”
I am honored to be in such company and think this was one of the most thought-provoking of all the FrontPage Symposia in which I’ve participated. Give it a look.
