I regularly lecture to visiting groups on Middle East politics, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and Jewish-Muslim relations. For a fascinating talk that goes beyond the headlines, look no further.
Here is a menu of my lectures:
THE PEN AND THE SWORD: COVERING THE ARAB WORLD FROM ISRAEL
How did I, a religious Ashkenazi Jew from Jerusalem, come to study Arabic and become a journalist?
How did I convince Syrian rebels and Islamist politicians from Cairo to Ramallah to discuss politics with me?
In this personal presentation, I share anecdotes from my work as an Arab Affairs reporter and discuss the challenges facing Israeli journalists in reporting on the Middle East.
PEOPLE OF THE BOOK: CONNECTING JEWS AND MUSLIMS THROUGH VIRAL CARTOONS
When I launched my online initiative in the summer of 2017, little did I know that my animated videos would soon garner millions of views and over 60,000 regular followers across the Middle East.
Come hear about my mission to connect conflicting parties through religion, and the unexpected challenges
I faced while doing so.
PARTITION OR NO PARTITION:
A HISTORY OF THE PALESTINIAN-ISRAELI CONFLICT
The question of partition has divided right and left in Israel and Palestine for the past century. Come
learn about the defining question of our conflict through an unusual perspective.
ISRAELI AND PALESTINIAN POLITICS FOR DUMMIES
The classic right-left divide isn’t necessarily the best way to analyze the decisions of Israeli and
Palestinian leaders. What tool do I use to evaluate how our leaders are likely to act?
IDEOLOGY AND PRAGMATISM
The Islamic Resistance Movement was born at a crucial time in history: just as it’s rival, the PLO, was getting ready for peace with Israel.
This presentation discusses the ideological origins of Hamas
and highlights the dramatic changes it underwent during and after the Arab Spring.
SPEAKING TO TERRORISTS' DADS
The recent wave of Palestinian stabbing attacks has caught many Israelis by surprise.
Having tracked the online activity of the young attackers and interviewed their family members, I present an intricate profile of a disillusioned and fragmented Palestinian generation.
