Amb. Dore Gold and Judge Richard Goldstone
will discuss the UN Report on war crimes in Gaza
Brandeis University, Thurs., Nov. 5 at 5 p.m., EST
In what is sure to be a heated debate, South African Judge Richard Goldstone will discuss his report for the first time with a senior Israeli figure. Dore Gold, former Israeli ambassador to the United Nations and president of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, will respond to Goldstone in the forum and then both will take questions from the audience.
Professor Ilan Troen, who heads the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University, said in an interview: “What we’re in for is learned, direct, and honest drama.” (Boston Globe, Oct. 22, 2009)
The debate is a program of the International Center for Ethics, Justice, and Public Life and the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University.
