TOMORROW! Peter Beinart and Dana El Kurd on Mahmoud Abbas

Thursday, September 14th at 11am ET:

Join Jewish Currents for a virtual conversation between Dana El Kurd, assistant professor of political science at the University of Richmond and author of the book, Polarized and Demobilized: Legacies of Authoritarianism in Palestine, and editor-at-large Peter Beinart. El Kurd is one of the world’s authorities on what has happened to the Palestinian national movement since the Oslo agreement and how it produced the current leadership of Mahmoud Abbas. She is also a signatory to the new “open letter” condemning Abbas’ comments about the Holocaust.

This conversation is co-sponsored with The Beinart Notebook, a weekly newsletter written by Peter Beinart.
