Friday, March 15, 2013 • 7:10pm
Dr. Michael Curtis, author, will present “Should Israel Exist? A Sovereign Nation Under Attack by the International Community” on Sunday, April 14, 9:30 – 11:00 am, at Congregation Beth Israel in Scotch Plains. The lecture is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
The event is sponsored by Congregation Beth Israel’s Adult Education Committee and The Israel Support Committee of Congregation Beth Israel; Temple Beth Ahm Yisrael; Temple Beth O'r Beth Torah; Temple Beth El/Mekor Chayim; Temple Emanu-El; and Temple Sholom.
Dr. Michael Curtis is a Distinguished Professor Emeritus of political science at Rutgers University. He is highly regarded as an expert in several fields: political theory; comparative government; European politics; and the Middle East. An activist as well as a scholar, he has served as the president of American Professors for Peace in the Middle East and editor of the Middle East Review.
In his 2012 book, “Should Israel Exist?”, Dr. Curtis reveals how the attitudes, lies and false dealings of the international community are used against Israel. Dr. Curtis also suggests that these dealings do not only have an impact on Israel but, rather, on the whole Western, democratic world.
Dr. Curtis will sign books after his presentation.
