MARIETTA, OH (Nov. 1, 2017)– The Evergreen Arts & Humanities Series at Washington State College of Ohio (WSCO) in collaboration with the Washington State Foundation and the Schwendeman Agency, Inc. announce the upcoming lecture by Dr. Terence Zuber. This presentation is sponsored by Jane E. Morris in memory of Harold and LaRue Graham Morris.

Dr. Zuber’s topic for the evening will be “The 1967 Arab-Israeli War and Its Consequences 50 Years Later.” The lecture will be held on Saturday, November 11, 2017, at 7:30 pm in Graham Auditorium located in the Arts & Sciences building on the campus of WSCO. Admission is free, but please be mindful that seating is limited.

This lecture will provide a background summary of the 1948 Israeli War of Independence and the 1956 war, followed an analysis of the reasons for Israel’s military success in 1967. It will then discuss the significance of the Israeli conquest of the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, which lead to “land for peace”, while the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Jerusalem, which continues to this day, resulted in Israeli settlements and continual Palestinian/Israeli struggles.
