Reminder! Israel-Palestine debate at CSULA, October 26!

by Humanist Ass'n @ CSULA Friday, Oct. 20, 2006 at 8:49 PM

Who is more at fault for the continuing crisis in Israel/Palestine? This debate may not answer that question to everyone's satisfaction, but at least both points of view will be heard.

Debate on Middle East Turmoil
Moderated by Prof. Marjorie Bray
Director of the Latin American Studies Program

Thursday, October 26, 7 to 8:30 P.M.

Debate Question:
Are Arab or Israeli Policies Prolonging the Middle East Conflict?
Israeli Perspective: Roz Rothstein and Roberta Seid, Ph.D.
Arab Perspective: Vicki Tamoush and Don Bustany

Vicki Tamoush is a second-generation Arab American whose grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from Syria and Lebanon. She has traveled throughout the Middle East and lived in Saudi Arabia for a year and a half. In December, 1990, she traveled to Iraq under the auspices of the Fellowship of Reconciliation to deliver 14 tons of pediatric medical supplies to the Red Crescent Society in Baghdad. She and her colleague offered to exchange themselves for the civilian hostages being held by Saddam Hussein at that time and ultimately secured the release of 181 Americans. Vicki served as the first Western Regional Director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and was the first Arab American elected to the Board of Directors of the ACLU. She has been active with more than 25 Arab and pacifist organizations since 1978. From the standpoints of both a human relations professional and a victim, Vicki has presented over 500 workshops and lectures on hate crime and cultural diversity issues, also appearing in print and electronic media. Vicki was born and raised outside of San Bernardino, California and was educated at UC Irvine and Immaculate Heart College Center. She currently resides in Orange County.

Don Bustany, born and raised in Detroit, is the son of Lebanese immigrants. He’s a graduate of Wayne State University and Syracuse University. After doing his two years in the Army, he moved to Los Angeles and has worked in radio and television ever since. He retired from commercial broadcasting in 1990 and, as a volunteer, has been producing and hosting a weekly talk show called “Middle East In Focus” on listener-sponsored KPFK Radio. He’s past president of the LA chapter of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee... of the Middle East Cousins Club... of the Arab-Jewish Speakers Bureau... and of the Media Image Coalition of the LA County Human Relations Commission. Currently, he’s on the Board of Americans for Democratic Action.

Roz Rothstein is the International Director of StandWithUs. Roz is a child of Holocaust Survivors. She holds a degree in Psychology and she became a family therapist in 1980, practicing in the state of California for over two decades. Roz was a professional with the Jewish Centers Association for a decade, after which she served on the Boards of Directors of various Jewish organizations in executive capacities, accumulating 25 years of hands on leadership experience in the Los Angeles area. She and her husband, Jerry Rothstein, founded the international Holocaust Arts and Writing Contest, facilitating meetings between thousands of teens and living Survivors of the Holocaust. After the September 2000 Intifada began, the Rothsteins co-founded Standwithus with others.

Roberta Seid: Trained at University of California, Berkeley, where she specialized in social and cultural theory and 19th Century European history, Seid published her research in the Garland Series of Outstanding Dissertations in 1987. Seid went on to lecture in European history at University of Southern California. Interested in the cultural trends concerning women's beauty, Seid published Never Too Thin: Why Women are at War with Their Bodies (Prentice-Hall), a historical critique of America's obsession with thinness, which led to a monthly column in Shape Magazine. Seeing the need for clear, accurate materials about the Middle East, Dr. Seid turned her attention to the current Israeli-Palestinian conflict. She provides research to the Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles and is Historical Research and Education Consultant for StandWithUs, a grassroots, non-profit organization.
