Arab-Israeli conflict: major challenge in the modern era
Tim Crain is Director of the National Catholic Center for Holocaust Education at Seton Hill University. The conflict between the Israelis and the Arab world has continued for 100 years, and there is no solution in sight. Over the past fifty years, the struggle has degenerated into more of an Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as most of the Arab nations have lost interest. What has made resolution all the more difficult, is that both sides have legitimate claims to the same territory. In the presentation we will review the past and present relationship of the two entities, and project to the future in an attempt to review what steps can be taken to resolve the ongoing strife.
Thank Jack and Glenda Rhodes, Neuville Motors, and Bank First for cosponsoring this program.
The Winchester Academy of Waupaca presents a series of lectures throughout the year. Unless otherwise noted, programs are held in the downstairs meeting rooms of the Waupaca Area Public Library. Each presentation lasts approximately one hour and is followed by discussion and refreshments. There is no admission charge. Should a late cancellation be necessary, it will be announced on WDUX (fm 92.7). All programs begin at 6:30 P.M.
The name “Winchester Academy” implies a building and physical structure, but there is none. The Academy is a voluntary organization with a Board of Trustees comprised of area citizens that fosters lifelong learning based on ideas originating in Scandinavian folk academies. The Academy offers, on average, twenty-five programs annually. There is no membership required for attendance at programs. All are FREE of charge and open to the general public. Programs are usually held at the Waupaca Area Public Library on Monday evenings at 6:30. Other venues and days of the week are occasionally used for special seminars and musical programs (e.g., churches, or other sites that can accommodate larger crowds). Some programs might include controversial subject matter, but the Academy takes no position and seeks to provide balanced and reliable information.
