Dr. Gershon Baskin, a veteran Israeli peace activist, will be coming to campus to speak about his role in the secret talks between Israel and Hamas for the release of abducted Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit in exchange for over 1,000 Palestinians. For over five years, several attempts were made to reach a deal that would release Gilad Shalit. In May 2011, a breakthrough was finally made as a result of the hard work of Dr. Baskin who opened a channel of communication between Hamas and the Israeli Mossad.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear the story from Dr. Baskin himself!
