Good evening, listeners. This week, host Richard Aldous discusses the recent terrorist attacks in Brussels with Robert Carle.
Dr. Carle is a professor of theology at The King’s College in Manhattan, and he wrote an essay entitled “How Europe’s Capital Became a Jihadi Recruiting Center” for The American Interest last October. He discusses how that essay has been proven tragically prescient given this week’s events, and sheds light on why Islamic radicalization is such a problem for Belgium. He speaks about what life is like for Belgian immigrants, and expands his scope to discuss what this attack means for European security more broadly.
