The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is long and bloody and all attempts to sort it out have failed so far. Dr Ahron Bregman from the Department of War Studies, King’s College London, will suggest how the conflict could be solved. Ahron served in the Israeli army for six years and as an artillery officer took part in the 1982 Lebanon war. He left Israel in the late 1980s because of the violence of the occupation and settled in the UK. He is the author of numerous books on the Arab-Israeli conflict, two of which The Fifty Years War and Elusive Peace, resulted in major BBC TV documentaries. His latest book, Cursed Victory: a History of Israel and the Occupied Territories, (Penguin, 2014) sparked an international controversy as it included secret documents and transcripts of telephone conversations between the President of the US and world leaders, secretly recorded by Israeli agents.
