Local Middle Eastern Expert Speaks Out on Paris Attacks [on Josef Olmert]
by Dana Fulton
After ISIS claimed responsibility for the Paris Attacks, the focus for many political leaders shifted to how to handle the terrorist organization.
"For starters, when you have a list of terrorist suspects, you go after them, " says USC Middle Eastern Studies Professor, and Israel native, Dr. Josef Olmert.
He says, there was a fault in the communication between the countries surrounding France leading up to the attacks.
"The Belgians and French were so close to each other; what was too difficult about coordinating," asks Dr. Olmert. "That's a monumental intelligence failure."
Dr. Olmert adds, the organization is a reflection of a small portion of Muslims.Note: Articles listed under "Middle East studies in the News" provide information on current developments concerning Middle East studies on North American campuses.
