David N. Myers, Ph.D., and Hussein Ibish, Ph.D., will present “Shared Past, Divergent Courses: Zionism and Palestinian Nationalism, Part 3, The Israel-Palestinian Conflict, 1979-Present” at the Schemel Forum’s World Affairs Luncheon Seminar at The University of Scranton. The luncheon will begin at noon on Monday, March 19, in the Rose Room of Brennan Hall.

Dr. Myers president/CEO of the Center for Jewish History and Sady and Ludwig Kahn Professor of Jewish History at UCLA, and Dr. Ibish, senior resident scholar at the Arab Gulf States Institute, will discuss the ways religious differences now cause more conflicts than national differences. The speakers will weigh the influence of new global forces, and illuminate reasons for the stall in peace negotiations.

This presentation is the third and final of a series exploring the history and future of the Israel-Palestine conflict.

The luncheon is $20 per person, or $30 per couple. Attendance is free to Schemel Forum Members.

The World Affairs Luncheon Seminar series is sponsored by Munley Law.
