In recent days we have hosted two speakers whose views on the Israeli-Palestinian issue couldn’t be more different. We led off with Dore Gold, former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations and a continuing advisor to Knesset opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu. A few days later we presented Jessica Montell, executive director of B’tselem, the Israeli Information Center for Human Rights in the Occupied Territories.
Closing off the lecture series tonight is Donniel Hartman, the Institute’s Co-Director. Read some of Donniel’s recent thoughts on this issue:
The lectures were given to the participants in the Institute’s Christian Leadership Initiative, and were designed to give these American clergymen and women a sense of the wide range of viewpoints held here in Israel. But don’t worry, we’ll be posting up videos of the lectures soon, and we’ll tip you off as to when they come online. If you want, you can write to me, and I’ll drop you a personal note.
