France’s most sophisticated scholar of contemporary Islam and the Arab World, Gilles Kepel, joins us from Paris to discuss the new Middle East fault lines and the jihadi terror threat, and how it continues to evolve in France since the now infamous attack on the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo through the use of social media and online networks. An excerpt from his most recent work, “The Prophet and the Pandemic” has just been published in English in the journal Liberties April 27th issue #3. In it, Dr. Kepel tells the story of civics teacher Samuel Paty, and the role that atmospheric jihadism played in his murder in October 2020 outside his Middle School in the outskirts of Paris, by a young Chechen whose family came to France as political refugees. This latest incident is a window into the broader conflict between radical political Islam and the West, and Professor Kepel will offer a unique insight into how this conflict takes place within the new Middle East fault lines, from the signing of the “Abraham Accords” to the “Iran and Political Islam Axis.\"
