Jefferson Center Salons

  • 02/11/2018 - 4:00pm

    Join Len Eisenberg at the Ashland Community Center, 59 Winburn Way, for a discussion about Israel and Palestine. The recent declaration by the Trump administration on moving the US embassy to Jerusalem has refocused attention on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the debate on how to solve it. A two-state solution has been the most favored, but a one- or three-state solution are also possible. The civil war in Syria, the rise and fall of ISIS, and the rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran make the picture vastly more complicated. We look at a short history of the conflict and new developments, and discuss possible solutions.

    Len Eisenberg worked as a geologist in the international petroleum industry, and now promotes science and earth history education via construction of earth history parks, geologic climbing walls, classroom presentations and evogeneao.com
