Matthew RJ Brodsky joins Jonathan Cristol, fellow at the World Policy Institute on i24News "The Rundown" with Nurit Ben and Calev Ben-David to discuss the implications of the gathering in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia of the 40 Muslim-majority nations' Islamic Military Counter Terrorism Coalition. Hosted by the Saudi Crown Prince, the alliance has yet to take any decisive action, but as Brodsky points out, getting the Sunni nations to agree on anything would be an achievement. If they come to a consensus on the threats posed by Iran and the need to fill the vacuum left by the regional defeats of ISIS and other Salafi terrorist groups, it would represent a start. Focusing on the reformation of the radical preaching that promotes terrorism in the name of Islam would be another positive step. Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman declared his intention to reclaim Islam from the extremists.
