Register in advance. A primer on Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Can’t you just explain the Israel situation to me? In, like, minutes or less?” This is the question Daniel Sokatch is used to answering on an almost daily basis. As the head of the New Israel Fund, which is dedicated to equality and democracy for all Israelis, not just Jews, Sokatch is supremely well-versed on the Israeli conflict.
Can We Talk About Israel? is the story of that conflict, and of why so many people feel so strongly about it without actually understanding it very well at all. It is an attempt to grapple with a century-long struggle between two peoples that both perceive themselves as (and indeed are) victims. And it’s an attempt to explain why Israel (and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict) inspires such extreme feelings‚ why it seems like Israel is the answer to what is wrong with the world” for half the people in it, and what is right with the world” for the other half.
