5/30/2018
More
The lecture focuses on the relationship between Muhammad and the emerging Muslim community and the major Jewish tribes in Arabia. We shall see how the animosity between the two parties is reflected in the Quran, in its various interpretations, and in the Muslim traditions in general. We shall try to understand the historical reality hidden behind the verses and the traditions. Nevertheless, some classical and mainly modern interpretations try to read the relevant verses in a more cordial...

Hamas, Gaza, and the Rush to Judgment - Amb. Dore Gold

5/26/2018
More
Accusations made against Israel over the last month that the Israeli army used “excessive force” against Palestinians along the fence between the Gaza Strip and Israel provided me with a strong sense of déjà vu. Back in 2009, Israel was bombarded with criticism that it had used disproportionate amounts of force as it tried to suppress Hamas rocket fire aimed at Israeli cities. The high point of that criticism back then was the release of the famous, or I should say infamous, Goldstone...

A Changed Saudi Arabia - Amb. Dore Gold

2/5/2018
More
I get asked all the time, “You wrote a book, we seem to remember, about Saudi Arabia’s contribution to the rise of global terrorism after 9/11. Yet you are now associated with the effort of the State of Israel and others to bring Saudi Arabia into the tent and to create a kind of new relationship – perhaps a reconciliation – between the Jewish state and the Saudi Kingdom. How do you explain that? Isn’t that an inconsistency.” The Israeli security establishment at the time estimated that...

The Brewing Conflict along the Red Sea - Amb. Dore Gold

2/5/2018
More
While international observers are rightfully looking at serious questions in the Middle East like the future of Syria and Iran’s interests in taking over that country, there is a crisis brewing to Israel’s south that has not gotten sufficient attention. I’m speaking about the Red Sea where at least a half a dozen countries are scrambling for influence, seeking bases throughout the area, and positioning themselves for perhaps even a future conflict. The first development that is causing a...

Why Post-Holocaust Studies Are Important to Societies Today - Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld

2/6/2017
More
Holocaust studies deal with the myriad aspects of the mass murder of Jews. The subject of genocide overshadows the very important impact the Holocaust has made on post-war societies. This impact covers many disciplines such as sociology, psychology, law, theology, ethics, philosophy, politics, medical issues, history, literature, art, and others. Only by grouping all of these disciplines together in one area, Post-Holocaust Studies, can one understand multi-disciplinary issues such as...

Old Historians, New Historians, No Historians: The Derailed Debate on 1948 - Dr. Raphael Israeli

12/19/2016
More
Was Israel born in sin? Alleged atrocities launched by the Jews during the 1948 War, the birth of the Palestinian refugee problem, the conduct of the War of Independence, and the ensuing issues of the Arab-Israeli conflict refuse to disappear from our horizon 70 years later. Dr. Raphael Israeli contends that these recriminations are exaggerated and some historians are guilty of not having consulted the Arabic sources. They show that the basic hatred and rejection of nascent Israel by the...

Why are the millions of Muslim refugees from Syria, Libya, and Yemen trying to get to Europe? * A significant portion of refugees are young males – the high testosterone age, imbued with a spirit for making Europe into the world of Islam. * The Muslims were stopped twice in their advancement on Europe.
