Israel and the Palestinians – The Options Ahead
Tuesday, December 14, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Current Israeli-Palestinian relations appear satisfactory with on-going security cooperation, minimal terrorist activities and burgeoning economic exchange. However, this seemingly positive picture is not sustainable in the long run, and will confront Israel with an existential dilemma regarding its identity and nature as a democratic Jewish state. The lecture will discuss the three options Israel faces vis-a-vis the Palestinians, preservation of the status-quo that is bound to lead to a one-state solution; continued hopes for a peaceful agreement on a two-state solution or unilateral Israeli action of disengagement from the Palestinians.
Meir Litvak serves as a Professor at the Department of Middle Eastern History and a senior research associate at the Alliance Center for Iranian Studies at Tel Aviv University. His research focuses on modern Islamic movements, particularly Shi’ism, Arab perceptions of the Holocaust and Palestinian Collective Memory and National Identity. He received his doctorate from Harvard University in 1991.
