About This Issue

I first heard Dr. Rothchild speak earlier this year at a conference in Washington D.C. co-sponsored by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs (WRMEA) and the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy (IRmep).
 
The subject of the conference was “The Israel Lobby: Is it Good for the U.S.? Is it Good for Israel?” The day-long event was well attended and offered an impressive list of speakers, including the Israeli columnist Gideon Levy.
 
But the speaker I was moved to invite to write for The Link was Alice Rothchild, a physician from Boston.  At a time of growing distrust and racial divisions in the Middle East, and elsewhere, hers is a personal journey of outreach and of healing.

On page 13 of the PDF, we note the passing of Hugh D. Auchincloss, Jr., a former AMEU Board member and, at the time of his death, a member of our National Council.

On pages 14 and 15 of the PDF, we offer a select list of books and videos, available through AMEU, that complement our feature article.  A full listing of our books and videos is available on our website: www.ameu.org.
