Kalamazoo Room, Michigan League
Sponsored by JStreet Umich Featuring Professors Juan Cole and Sarai Aharoni Over the past several years, the violent rhetoric used by politicians has reached a turning point. It seems as if every day there is a new report, new quote, new scenario that our leaders are talking about. In this time, diplomatic initiatives have failed. Instead, the United States has led a global coalition of nations in crushing sanctions and divestments against Iran. But the fact remains: Iran's nuclear capabilities are increasing. While this does not necessarily lead to nuclear weapons, will Israel want to live alongside a nuclear Iran? Or will Israel risk a strike against Iranian nuclear facilities before that happens? This event is free and open to the public. All political stances are welcome and encouraged to attend.
