The event is a cooperation between the Mideast Freedom Forum Berlin and the Young Forum of the German-Israeli Friendship Society Berlin.
At this special event, Israeli MK Aliza Lavie of Yesh Atid and a delegation of the party’s youth organization Young Yesh Atid will talk about life in Israel, how the Jewish state was founded after the Holocaust and what it’s like to be an Israeli.
Not only was and is Israel the target of wars, of terror attacks and rockets fired at its civilians, Israel is also the target of countless resolutions and condemnations directed against its reaction to those atrocities. The purpose of the BDS movement, the boycott of the Jewish State, is just as questionable. Still, BDS is gaining ground.
At this event, MK Aliza Lavie and the delegation will explain what terror really feels like and if there is still a chance to achieve peace in the Middle East. Our guests will have the opportunity to discuss with MK Lavie and the delegation the challenges Israel is facing: To deal with terror and the hypocrisy of the international community while ensuring a peaceful and secure life for its citizens.
Yesh Atid (Hebrew: „There is a future“) is a centrist party founded by Yair Lapid in 2012. With its staunch stance on security and its orientation towards a two-state solution it has since become an important voice in Israel politics. According to recent polls it may be part of a future government, as it has been between from 2013 to 2015.
