The Settlements: A Sticking Point

The United States, Israel, and the West Bank Settlements

Israel’s West Bank settlements are the most contentious issue in relations with the Palestinians and have become an increasing source of tension between Jerusalem and Washington since Obama took office. Professor Zach Levey will discuss this sticking point in the peace process and possible solutions.  Come discuss this hot-button issue with Levey, the Schusterman Visiting Professor in Israel Studies and International Affairs at CU Boulder. He completed his studies at the Hebrew University, was visiting assistant professor at the University of Michigan, and since 1997 has been faculty at the University of Haifa. His principal areas of research and teaching are the Cold War, US-Israeli relations, the foreign policy of Israel, and the Arab-Israeli Conflict.

Thursday, January 28, 7 pm. At the Boulder JCC, 3800 Kalmia Ave., Boulder.  $5 for BJCC members; $6 for guests.  Please RSVP to  Kathryn@boulderjcc.org.
