Robert Fisk: 'The Middle East Is Not a Complex Place'

Editor’s note: After far too long a wait, we’ve unearthed parts 3 and 4 of this interview, which continues to enlighten.

The acclaimed journalist stopped by our offices this week, where he told Truthdig Editor Robert Scheer that the Middle East is a lot less puzzling than it’s made out to be: “It’s we who are there, not the other way round. … It’s not our land. It’s not our religion. Our soldiers are in the Muslim world and they should not be there.”
