02/10/2009   Download Podcast

Prof. Elie Rekhess, one of Israel’s leading experts on Arab affairs, assesses the nature of Israel’s relationship with Hamas and the Palestinian Authority in light of the recent Gaza conflict. Rekhess, who is Visiting Crown Chair in Middle East Studies at Northwestern University, examines the roots of Hamas’s efforts to “Islamize” the Israel-Arab conflict and considers the chances for a return to a secular concept of Israeli-Palestinian relations. Rekhess is introduced by Kenneth Seeskin, the Northwestern’s Charles Deering McCormick Professor of Teaching Excellence in the Department of Philosophy.
