Abstract:     
This edition of the WIIS Israel Middle East Review is themed around religion and politics in the Middle East. Minorities face a new dilemma as political Islam gains popularity, support and power. The first article discusses how the implementation of Shari’a law by the newly established governments in Tunisia and Egypt will affect women and minorities. The next article highlights the predicament of Christians in Syria, and speculates on what the future will hold for this Middle East minority. The journal opens with an interview of Stephen Suleyman Schwartz, Executive Director of the Center for Islamic Pluralism, who offers insights on the growing strength of political Islam that is currently sweeping through the Middle East.
