(PORTLAND, OR) - The events of the Arab Spring have been awesome and inspiring, opening up the possibility of a regional landscape that is almost unfathomably different from what would have been predicted just one year ago.

On Friday, February 24th, at 9:00AM, Noam Chomsky joins hosts Wael Elasady and Will Seaman to discuss the shifting political landscape of the Middle East, the potential implications for US policy in the region and the possible consequences for Palestinians and Israelis.
