The Muslim-Israeli Conflict
Thursday, February 28, 2013
The Muslim-Israeli conflict is an ongoing struggle to find the right balance between the rights of two groups who share an ancient biblical heritage. Dr. Tom’s student guest cohost is Nancy Mercurio, a second-year student—known in seminary jargon as a Middler—in the Unity Institute® and Seminary Master of Divinity program. Nancy is an author and business owner who serves leaders and organizations globally to improve effectiveness. She has a bachelor's in business administration and a master's in management-human relations and organizational development. Their two expert guests are Dr. Seth Ward, an associate lecturer in religious studies at the University of Wyoming, where he teaches Islam and Middle-Eastern subjects, and Imam Bilal Hazziez, Muslim cleric and Islamic community leader in the greater Kansas City area.
