Author @ the Library: "Hezbollah and Hamas: A Comparative Study," with Joshua L. Gleis, an independent scholar and international security consultant.

December 5, 2012

Program Locations:

Mid-Manhattan Library

Hezbollah and Hamas are major players in Middle Eastern politics and have a growing involvement in global events.  Despite their strikingly different beginnings, they share a common denominator—an adversary in Israel.  The author draws from primary interviews and documents combined with a thorough review of current scholarship.  This illustrated lecture is a portrait of the organizations’ roots, histories, ideologies, relationships, tactics, political outlooks, and futures.  Recognizing that these two groups are increasingly relevant to U.S. national security, he provide a comparative analysis of their histories and political missions that moves beyond reductionist portrayals of the organizations’ military operations.
