Please join the Azrieli Institute of Israel Studies on Thursday, October 14, 2021 at 12:00PM, for a virtual talk with Dr. Jonathan Ghariani, their current visiting scholar on the topic of Israeli-Morocco relations. Abstract Until recently most Arab countries refused to engage in any form of negotiations with Israel. In contrast to the pan-Arab consensus of boycotting Israel, Morocco and Oman established informal ties with Israel in the early 1960s and 1975 respectively. Morocco and Oman were one of the first Arab countries besides Egypt and Jordan to establish formal diplomatic relations with Israel. These relations were abruptly severed after the outbreak of the second intifada in Israel and the Palestinian territories. However, with the signing of the Abraham Accords between Israel and three Arab countries, Morocco joined the circle of peace and restored its pre-intifada partial diplomatic ties with Israel.
Meena Krishnamurthy is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Queen’s University. She is a political philosopher who works on race, democracy, and social movements. She is currently writing a book, "The Emotions of Nonviolence," and a series of related papers on Martin Luther King Jr.’s political philosophy. Her work is about King’s views on the role of the political emotions in motivation to end racial injustice. It explores how he used the various tactics of the civil rights movement (protest, images, letters, and oratory) to engage these emotions and to overcome some of the barriers to political action. This project is a follow up to her earlier piece on King, “(White) Tyranny and the Democratic Value of Distrust.”

"In May 2021, Israel went on a military operation, "Shomer Homot" in Gaza. Simultaneously with the operation, hard riots broke out inside many cities in Israel. In this presentation, I will describe the events of "Shomer Homot" and specifically examine how it redefined the Jewish-Arab relationship in Israel." - Lilach Ben Zvi Lilach is completing her doctorate at the University of Haifa. Focusing on the political theory of Yeshayahu Leibowitz, Lilach will examine the nature of the public sphere in Israel and the way it can serve as a battleground for different and contradictory world views about Israel as a Jewish and democratic state.

About the film Over seven decades ago, the members of the People's Council sat down to draft the Declaration of Independence of the State of Israel. Every word and comma led to hours of debate. The declaration was signed, the State established, but the debate still rages. The grandchildren of the signers of the Declaration of Independence return to the hall in Tel Aviv where the document was signed. Who are the descendants of the people who established the state? What do they think of it today? Can they agree on one correct path for Israel? Natural Right raises once again the issues upon which the State of Israel has yet to decide, over seventy years after first attempting to do so.
