About The Event:

The current situation of Palestine needs an attention from the world in order to resolve the longest conflict in human history in the modern era. The Western powers’ plot and the UN support to partition ‘the Land of Palestine’ in November 1947 triggered the critical situation which as a result, the struggle for Palestinian independence began. This year (2018) marks the 70 years of Nakbah since 1948 when Israel repelled Palestinian attacks and increased its zone of control by thirty percent, after which the Arab-Israel wars over Palestine began.

Hence, this seminar is an attempt to discuss the conflict from various aspects in order to perceive the situation and to discuss possible ways in facing this significant challenge in order to resolve the conflict and to suggest peace, harmony, and reconciliation.

This Seminar Is Aimed to Achieve The Following Objectives:

  • To examine the challenges of co-existence between major religions i.e. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam especially after the Nakbah tragedy.
  • To analyze the role of regional and trans-regional powers as pulling and pushing factors towards the prospects of Palestinians.
  • To evaluate the impact of 2017 Reconciliation Agreement between Hamas and PLO as well as the President Trump’s declaration.
