100 ISIS Terrorists Caught in Guatemala as Central American Caravan Heads to U.S.

Why Is the Middle East Studies Association Trying to Stop the Online Publication of Islamic State Documents?

Why would the Middle East Studies Association (MESA), the primary umbrella organization for the field of Middle East studies, oppose the New York Times partnering with George Washington University (GWU)’s Program On Extremism to produce a public archive of the thousands of Islamic State (ISIS) documents the newspaper retrieved from northern Iraq?
