In a lively back-and-forth discussion, Dr. Hussein Ibish (Senior Resident Scholar, Arab Gulf States Institute) and Professor David Meyers (Judaic Studies, UCLA) will provide a thoughtful look at the history and interpretation of two opposing movements: Zionism and Palestinian Nationalism. This conversation will provide a dual-lens perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the eyes of Jews and Arabs. The discussion will be focused on three main trigger points in the relationship: 1917, 1947-48, and 1967.
