Gwynne Dyer vs. Farzana Hassan

The Toronto Reference Library hosted a talk by author Gwynne Dyer about his new book on Monday, but it quickly turned into an animated discussion on Islamism.

In Don’t Panic: ISIS, Terror and Today’s Middle East, Dyer argues the birth of ISIS and the creation of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria does not pose any substantial risk with regard to terrorist attacks on Western countries.

Facing the London-based author on the panel was Toronto Sun columnist Farzana Hassan.
