In America and around the world, there are many rumors and questions about what the Palestinian refugee situation really is in the Middle East. On college campuses, many students, Jewish and non Jewish, are fixated on these questions because of their obvious ties to human rights concerns. Students at the CAMERA supported EMET for Israel group at the University of Wisconsin- Madison wanted to clear up much of the confusion about Palestinian Refugees that circulates around campus, so they invited Dr. Asaf Romirowsky to give a presentation on the subject. Romirowsky is a Middle East analyst and the co-author of Religion, Politics, and the Origins of Palestinian Refugee Relief.
About 30 students and faculty attended the CAMERA-sponsored presentation to hear Romirowsky’s lecture on both Palestinian Refugees and US-Israel relations. Romirowsky spoke clearly and was not afraid to use the terminology used among experts of the subject when giving his lecture. After his presentation, Romirowsky left time for a Q&A with his attendees, in which the students asked him the difficult but meaningful questions about the Arab-Israeli conflict. Overall, Romirowsky’s presentation was insightful, fascinating, and engaging.
