New Perspectives on the Middle East Many have a limited view of the Middle East and Muslim culture, especially those who get most of their information via coverage of wars or political unrest. The Muslim world represents an array of cultures, societies and political views. Four local colleges have joined forces to educate Northeast Ohioans about Muslims and the Middle East and to foster conversation. The education begins on the Sound of Ideas, Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.
