The evening discussion will be centered on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from Eid's point of view.
"We are thrilled to have Baseem Eid here to speak," said Rabbi Mendy Bronstein. "He calls it like it is as he shares his refreshing perspective, with such honesty, on this difficult issue."
Jerusalem-based political analyst, human rights pioneer and expert commentator, Eid was born in Jordanian-controlled East Jerusalem and grew up in the United Nations Refugee Works Agency refugee camp of Shuafat.

He broadened his research to include human rights violations committed by the Palestinian Authority on their own people. Currently, he is a political analyst for Israeli TV and radio, and is an outspoken critic of the BDS movement.
