WHAT

The Los Angeles World Affairs Council presents “Rethinking Israel-Palestine,” a conversation about what a binational Israeli state might look like.

 

WHO

Yossi Alpher, Israeli security expert and former adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. Alpher served in the Israel Defense Forces as an intelligence officer, followed by 12 years of service in the Israeli National Intelligence Agency (Mossad). In his new book, “No End of Conflict: Rethinking Israel-Palestine,” Alpher argues that many western views on the region are “delusional” and a sober reassessment of the stalemate in Israeli-Palestinian relationship is long overdue.

 

WHY

As political positions harden among Israelis and Palestinians, and fears grow that the chances for a two-state solution may be ebbing away, the question of what the future holds for Israel-Palestine absent a peace settlement has become urgent.
