The Creation of the Modern Middle East: A British Boarding School Mindset   8.00pm Tuesday 9 June
Many people tend to forget that the Middle East wasn't always the way you see it on the map nowadays. In fact, it never looked like that throughout history. Going back to the roots of WWI will enable us to better understand who was fighting over future control of the disintegrating Ottoman Empire, which approach they tried to apply, and how it ended up with the creation of an extremely artificial political map which still exists and affects everyone today, causing our region to be very volatile. There is no way to understand what is going on in the Middle East without understanding this first.
Our speaker Gil Regev is a popular lecturer at the Av Shalom Institute. After graduating from Law School with an LL.B and LL.M, Gil changed professional direction and become a guide to diplomats, journalists, businessman and prominent tourists, offering tours and lectures that combine legal and geo-political issues.
