    Among the Righteous: Jews in Arab Lands During the Holocaust

    12:30 PM – 2:00 PM

    Was there an "Arab Schindler"? An "Arab Wallenberg"? Holocaust memorial institutions, like Israel's Yad Vashem, have honored more than 20,000 people for saving Jews during World War II -- but not a single Arab is listed among them. Seeking a hopeful response to the plague of Holocaust denial sweeping across the Arab and Muslim worlds, Robert Satloff set off on a quest to find an Arab hero whose story would change the way Arabs view Jews, themselves, and their own history. Dr. Satloff will discuss his research and findings from his book-- a mix of history, travelogue, and memoir, a story of finding much more.

    The Conceptual Debate on Jihadism and Terrorism

    12:30 PM – 2:00 PM

    There is currently an ongoing debate on the roots of radicalization. Is radicalization of Islam to blame first, or are we witnessing an Islamization of radicalization? In this case are the roots of radicalization to be found in a post-colonial situation, or are we confronted with a larger phenomenon of youth disenfranchisement? What is then the appeal of the ISIS Islamic narrative?
