Spitzer, who teaches the political science course “Politics of the Arab-Israeli Conflict,” can speak to the multiple narratives for understanding this immensely complex ongoing conflict.
“Of the many wars and violent events over the 75-year Israeli-Palestinian conflict – the October 7 brutal Hamas attack on Israeli civilians and the resulting military responses from Israel present a tragic humanitarian and political crisis,” Spitzer said.
Spitzer can discuss the historical context of the current events in Israel and the Gaza Strip, and the short- and long-term implications for all of the participating actors: Israel, Hamas, the Palestinian Authority, other surrounding Arab nations and the United States.
