18-04-2016 at 20:00 - 21:30Free
What goes behind the organization of IS? How is it possible that IS has so rapidly outgrown other groups? How do they prepare their soldiers for attacks in Europe? And what role do power vacuums like Libya play in these processes? Coming over all the way from Israel, this night Jawad Al-Tamimi will give us an insight in the functioning of the Islamic State.
Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi has joined the Middle East Forum as a research fellow, after having obtained a degree in Classical and Oriental Studies at Oxford University. He has specialized in militant groups in Iraq and Syria, with a particular interest in those with a jihadist orientation. He has been cited in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, The Times (London), the Washington Post, and other publications and has been interviewed on various channels, such as Al-Jazeera.
