(Studio: Daryn Kagan) Live interview held with University of Michigan professor Juan Cole about the Arab view of what is unfolding in Najaf, Iraq. [From Ann Arbor, COLE - says the Arab news is confused, too, about what is happening at the mosque; explains what the holy mosque & city means to Shiites & Sunnis & how Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is viewed in the Arab world as a symbol of defiance to American occupation of Iraq; outlines the position of the interim government on al-Sadr & the role Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani is playing from a distance.]

Kagan, Daryn
