Check out the new podcast I recorded with Marc Lynch from the Project on Middle East Political Science: “Tunisia’s Missionaries of Jihad: A Conversation with Aaron Zelin”

This week’s podcast is a conversation with Aaron Y. Zelin, who discusses his new book Your Sons Are at Your Service: Tunisia’s Missionaries of Jihad. In the book, Zelin explains how Tunisia became one of the largest sources of foreign fighters for the Islamic State— even though the country stands out as a democratic bright spot of the Arab uprisings and despite the fact that it had very little history of terrorist violence within its borders prior to 2011.
