Beyond Fanaticism: Hamas - Israel War, An Interview with Middle East Expert James Bowden

First of all, I would like to thank Mr. James Bowden for making this interview possible. He was very attentive from the first moment I contacted him. To be honest, I was feeling a little nervous at the beginning of this interview because I hadn't done an interview in a long time. But Mr. Bowden's welcoming attitude and good energy put me at ease.

Interviewing Mr. Bowden was quite a pleasant experience. It was obvious how competent he was on Middle Eastern history with his multi-dimensional and rich answers. It was also very exciting to listen to him make a connection between current events and historical events and summarize the situations in depth.

We have been very careful to keep this interview a safe space where we discuss some aspects of the war, beyond fanaticism. I wish with all my heart that this massacre ends as soon as possible.

Finally, I would like to offer my special thanks to Dr. Evren Eken. The 'beyond fanaticism' motto he suggested to me, which allowed me to keep the interview in a safe space, provided a very productive space for both Mr. Bowden and me to be in.
