The Deep Map


Oct 28, 2023

Hussein Aboubakr Mansour speaks with Robert Nicholson and co-host Dominique Hoffman to provide a unique Arab perspective to the conflict. The anti-Semitic rhetoric sweeping the West is all too familiar to Hussein, who grew up in Egypt during the Second Intifada. He is willing to say what most are not. Although uncomfortable for many, Mansou addresses the deep-rooted antisemitism of the Arab world. For the Arab world, the Palestinian question was never simply a geopolitical issue. “Free Palestine” is a unifying symbol both for religious and Arab nationalist aims. Hussein explains the surprising ideological origins of modern Arab political thought and the religious fascist vision Hamas has for the region.
