Professor of Modern Israel Studies at the University of Arizona will be the speaker for this lecture.
As the Middle East region goes through what is perhaps its worst crisis ever, as key states seem to be on the verge of disintegration, how stable are countries like Jordan and how does its stability impinge upon Israeli security, on the one hand, and on the future of Palestinian statehood, on the other? In the present regional circumstances how valid is the two state solution for Israel and the Palestinians? Is there a one-state solution? To what extent should old ideas like Jordanian - Palestinian confederation be revived? What validity is there to the notion that “Jordan is Palestine”? This lecture seeks to discuss these questions and other related issues.
This lecture will begin at 7 P.M. at the Tucson Jewish Community Center located at 3800 East River Road.
This event is free and open to the public.
