The Arab-Israeli Conflict: Peace Process or War Process? March 27, 2009
Thursday, March 27
6:30p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Old South Meeting House
The Arab-Israeli conflict is century old and still not resolved. The dispute between Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs over the same land — land that contains holy sites for the three major monotheistic religious: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam — is bitter and deep. What is the nature of current tensions? What are their implications for U.S. policy? Tonight, Pulitzer Prize-winning Wall Street Journal reporter Amy Dockser Marcus and Dr. Daniel Pipes, director of the Middle East Forum and a columnist for the New York Times Syndicate , focus on United States diplomacy in this conflict, debating whether it has been part of a peace provess or a war provess.
Book signing will follow lecture and discussion.
This program is presented in collaboration with the Old South meeting House as part of the partners in Public Dialogue Series.
