Guest: Soeren Kern, geopolitical analyst, Gatestone Institute

“You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end” — Jesus (Matthew 24:6).

While the Middle East has always been known for its volatility, the region has been especially on fire recently.  In Iraq, where the United States recently withdrew its military after spending more than ten years and trillions of dollars and lost thousands of lives, an Al Qaeda associated group called ISIS is quickly and brutally taking over the country.

Similar atrocities are taking place in Syria, Africa, and Egypt as Islamic jihadists kill each other and Christians.

Who and what is behind all these conflicts?  How does the Sunni Muslim vs. Shia Muslim divide come into play?  What should the United States be doing?  How will Israel be impacted?  Where is this all going?

Our guest this weekend on The Christian Worldview is Soeren Kern.  Soeren is a Christian, an Air Force veteran, an essayist, a senior fellow at the Gatestone Institute, and a worldwide traveler (he has visited more than 100 countries including most of those in the Middle East).  Be sure to tune in for analysis that you won’t hear in the mainstream media.
