Daniel Pipes to Speak at Yale
Political commentator Daniel Pipes will speak at Yale University on the current situation in the Middle East on November 6, 3:30-5 p.m. in Room 102, Linsly-Chittenden Hall, 63 High Street.
The talk, hosted by Middle East Forum Students at Yale College, is free and open to the public.
Pipes was one of the earliest news analysts who understood the threat of militant Islam and its link to terrorism. “Unnoticed by most Westerners,” he wrote in 1995, “war has been unilaterally declared on Europe and the United States.”
Pipes is director of the Middle East Forum, a member of the presidentially appointed board of the U.S. Institute of Peace and a prize-winning columnist for the New York Post and The Jerusalem Post. Author of 12 books, his latest, “Miniatures: Views of Islamic and Middle Eastern Politics,” was released earlier this month by Transaction Publishers. He appears frequently on ABC World News, CBS Reports, Crossfire, Good Morning America, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, Nightline, The O’Reilly Factor and The Today Show and has been interviewed by the BBC and Al-Jazeera.
He received his A.B. (1971) and Ph.D. (1978) from Harvard University, both in history, and spent six years studying abroad, including three years in Egypt. He has taught at the University of Chicago, Harvard University and the U.S. Naval War College.
