The award-winning and internationally syndicated columnist, Eric Margolis joins me now, here in Vancouver. He’s the author of a new book, American Raj: Liberation or Domination? It sheds light on the west and its relationship with the Muslim world. After decades of travelling throughout the world, especially in the Middle East, Margolis provides a first-hand view of how we got to where we are, and how the centuries old conflict can be resolved. Among the points discussed in the book: why is there so much anger between the west and the Muslim world? Why is al Qaeda so popular and how can it be defeated. As well, views on Afghanistan, Iran and Pakistan, and how what happens there affects us. And we’ll look at the current election campaigns in this country and in the United States and see how they will affect the Middle East and the Muslim world. I’ll also ask Mr. Margolis about meeting Osama bin Laden. www.ericmargolis.com.ca is his website. In Canada, you can read him in the Toronto Sun, where’s its foreign correspondent. The book, American Raj is published by Key Porter and retails for $32.95. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Eric Margolis; Good morning, Mr. Margolis.
