About the event

The Middle East is once again facing a war that will change its character. In 1948 the borders of the Jewish state were determined, in 1967 the West Bank, Sinai and Gaza were occupied, in 1979 the peace agreement with Egypt was signed and redefined the borders of the Jewish state, and dictated the occupation on the ground. The Lebanon wars repeatedly defined the Israel-Lebanon and Syria borders, the Gulf War unequivocally defined the loyalty of the Western world to the State of Israel, and since the Israeli disengagement from the Gaza Strip, Hamas has consolidated its rule over millions of citizens.

In the discussion three point of views will present  possibilities of the future of the Middle East and in particular Israel and Palestine post war; Peace or farther violent conflicts, political solution or occupation and military control, an Arab Jewish alliance or an international war of destruction.
