Professor Abraham Sion, Chair, Center for Law and Mass Media at Ariel University, spoke on Monday, February 4, 2013, at the Luxe Hotel Sunset in Los Angeles on “Confronting the Israeli Left and Arab Propaganda.”
Israel has held its election and is in the process of forming a new government. Although Benjamin Netanyahu will remain Prime Minister, the next coalition is likely to allow for a greater influence of parties to the left of Likud. Israel’s enemies see an opportunity to force Israel to abandon the Jews of Judea and Samaria, to divide Jerusalem and to agree to the so-called Two State Solution. They are gleeful at the prospect of a severely weakened Israel.
Israel faces several existential crises. Professor Sion will discuss Israel’s best strategy for confronting the mounting pressure to surrender vital portions of its own land to allow for the creation of a Palestinian state and the changing circumstances that threaten Israel, including the imminent possibility of a nuclear Iran, the radicalization of the Islamic world, the political instability of Israel’s Arab neighbors and the continuing incitement by the so-called Palestinian Authority to hatred and terrorism against Israel and the Jews.
Steven M. Goldberg, National Vice Chairman of the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA), the U.S. representative on the Executive Board of World Likud, a member of the Extended Executive Board of the World Zionist Organization (WZO), introduced Professor Abraham Sion.
