Their book, "Religion, Politics, and the Origins of Palestine Refugee Relief," examines the leading role of the Quaker American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) in the United Nations relief program for Palestine Arab refugees in 1948-1950 in the Gaza Strip. It situates the operation within the context of the AFSC's attempts to exercise new influence on the separate issues of pacifism and disarmament at a time marked by US efforts to construct a Cold War security regime in the Middle East and British efforts to retain influence and bases in Arab countries.

Dr. Asaf Romirowsky is the Executive Director of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East (SPME). Trained as a Middle East historian he holds a PhD in Middle East and Mediterranean Studies from King's College London.

Dr. Alexander Joffe is a Shillman-Ginsburg Fellow at the Middle East Forum. Joffe is a writer on Israel and Jewish affairs. Trained as an archaeologist and historian, he holds a Ph.D. in Near Eastern studies from the University of Arizona.

JPC Meeting in Washington: Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, USA (ret.)

September 22, 2014 at 12:30 pm
Washington, DC

JPC members in Washington, DC met on September 22 to hear Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, USA (ret.) discuss the current situation in Iraq and ways the U.S. could help the Iraqi government reclaim territory from ISIS. Kimmitt, who returned from Baghdad only two days before the program, cautioned against thinking of ISIS "as a ten-foot giant." Stressing that the Iraqi army still has capabilities, and that American advisers could prove invaluable in updating and upgrading its skills, he also warned that military force was not sufficient to solve Iraq's problems. Baghdad's new government will also have to prove open to more consensual governance with Sunnis and Kurds. Following the presentation, members engaged BG Kimmitt in a Q&A session that covered events in Syria, Iran, Jordan and Israel as well.
