Tuesday Talks: Israel’s 70th Birthday and the Palestinian Conflict
November 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
This year is the 70th anniversary of Israel’s founding. Hear from lecturer David Thompson how in seven decades it has built a formidable military, strong economy, a cutting edge high-tech industry, a Nobel prize-winning science base and one of the world’s best health services, and has revived the Hebrew language. It has a vibrant cultural scene and a still viable parliamentary democracy. But the conflict that underlay the 1948 war has not been resolved.
