Dear Times of Israel Community member,
Tune in now (or on-demand) to a special Behind the Headlines interview, exclusively for the ToI Community.
Israeli author Yossi Klein Halevi and Palestinian scholar Professor Mohammed Dajani sit down with ToI Deputy Editor Amanda Borschel-Dan to discuss Klein Halevi’s impetus to write his book “Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor,” Dajani’s reaction and response to the book, and where these neighbors stand on the broader regional conflict. Can the two offer a truly viable model for resolving this intractable conflict?
Klein Halevi is a senior fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem, and a non-resident fellow of the Trends think tank in Abu Dhabi. He co-directs the Hartman Institute’s Muslim Leadership Initiative, which teaches emerging young Muslim American leaders about Judaism, Jewish Identity and Israel. His 2013 book “Like Dreamers” won the Jewish Book Council’s Everett Book of the Year Award. His latest book, “Letters to My Palestinian Neighbor” is a New York Times bestseller.
Dajani is a Palestinian scholar born in Jerusalem, where he currently lives. He holds two doctorate degrees and formerly taught at al-Quds University. He is the founding director of the Wasatia Academic Institute and presently cooperates with the European Union in Flensburg, Germany, at the European Wasatia Graduate School for Peace and Conflict Resolution, an interdisciplinary doctorate program on reconciliation, moderation, conflict resolution, interfaith dialogue, and ethics.
