Event

Iran-Israel-U.S.: Ending the Nuclear Impasse
Iran-Israel-U.S.: Resolving the Nuclear Impasse

December 16th  at 7 PM
Town Hall, Seattle

This community conference sponsored by local Jewish community groups and peace organizations will explore ways of resolving the Iranian nuclear crisis through negotiation, rather than force.  This week, Congress is debating a draconian sanctions bill directed against Iran.  Neocons in the U.S. and Israel suggest that if sanctions do not work eventually military force may be the only way to end or delay Irans nuclear ambitions.  Many in the progressive community are deeply concerned that the U.S. and/or Israel may soon repeat interventionist mistakes made in Iraq and Afghanistan.  This conference will present a comprehensive approach that could resolve major difference through diplomacy and open a new era in relations between these three current enemies.  It will also discuss the best means of supporting the Iran reform movement in its efforts to encourage a government based on democracy and tolerance.

Three Iran and Israel analysts with extensive experience in the field will discuss U.S. and Israeli policy options including sanctions and a possible military attack.  The speakers will be:

;; Dr. Trita Parsi, director & founder of the National Iranian American Council
;; Ian Lustick, political science professor, University of Pennsylvania
;; Dr. Keith Weissman, former director of Aipac's Iran desk

Among the issues to be discussed:

;; What is the best way to approach the issue of Irans nuclear program that will secure a positive outcome for those nations opposed to it?
;; What impact might crippling sanctions have on Iran and the overall conflict?  Will they work?
;; What repercussions might there be from an Israeli military attack on Iran and would such an attack attain its objectives?
;; If a military attack is a bad idea, how do we work to prevent it?
;; How should the west further the goals of the Iran reform movement?
;; Voices with the Israeli among the military, intelligence and academic communities that embrace a more pragmatic approach

A coalition of Seattle academic, religious, and peace groups, and individual activists is co-sponsoring the event:

American Friends Service Committee
United Nations Association
Network Promoting Peace with Iran
