The Influence of The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict on Interreligious Dialogue Around the World

Invitation to Webinar

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict seems to be a ‘hot potato’ in many interreligious initiatives outside of the Holy Land. The topic can be completely ignored or mishandled due to the sensitivities around it; the potato is either thrown out of the initiative or it burns the hands of the participants. Either way, it can have major consequences on peoples’ commitment to interreligious dialogue in such cases. How then should initiatives deal with the conflict? How does the Israeli-Palestinian conflict influence interreligious relations and dialogue in different parts of the world? What are some of the challenges in addressing the conflict in interreligious initiatives? Do interreligious initiatives around the world have the experience, knowledge and skills to facilitate such conversations? To watch the discussion click here.

Dialogue, not diatribe

Earlier this week far-right MK Bezalel Smotrich (leader of the Religious Zionism party) attacked the Arab members of Knesset and by inference at least, all Arab citizens of Israel saying, “You’re here by mistake, it’s a mistake that Ben-Gurion didn’t finish the job and didn’t throw you out in 1948.” The appalling cultural resonance of that remark makes the lack of condemnation by mainstream Jewish leaders all the more shameful.
