Mark Rosenblum - Mideast Peace Process - Recent Progress and Challenges
Mark Rosenblum is an historian at Queens College where he is Director of the Michael Harrington Center and head of its Middle East Project. Professor Rosenblum is an expert on the Middle East, is the founder of Americans for Peace Now, and has combined academic research and policy analysis with involvement in track two diplomacy. In that capacity he has attended the numerous international peace conference with leaders of Israel, Arab Countries and the PLO.
On August 13, 2009 Professor Rosenblum visited Portland and spoke at a lunch meeting of the Jewish Federation Community Relations Council. He spoke on the recent history and current status of the peace process, and the political challenges going forward within both Israel and Palestine. After his remarks a question and answer session went for the better part of an hour.
This audio (part 1) is Professor Rosenblum’s remarks only, I hope to have part 2, the Q and A available soon.
It is worth noting that several important developments have occurred since August, including the formal release of the Goldstone report, the decision not to refer the Goldstone report, and increasing political tensions between Palestinian factions. In addition the rhetoric about a settlement freeze has been … unsettling? I hope to do a phone interview in the next few weeks with Professor Rosenblum on these recent developments.
This audio has not yet aired. As Shalom Portland has not yet been given it’s next air time, and this material is time sensitive … it is here now for you to download and listen to.
