Q&A From Tehran to Tahrir Square: Is Freedom Really Sweeping the Middle East?

http://www.cis.org.au Thursday, 15 March 2012 Emanuele Ottolenghi At the start of the Arab Spring in early 2011, Western nations around the world held their breath and hoped that the chaotic uprisings on the streets of Egypt and neighbouring countries would herald democracy in the Middle East. It's been a year since the movement began and much has changed -- or has it? Real and robust democracy has a long way to go before becoming commonplace in the Middle East. What is really happening behind the scenes and away from the news cameras? And how can the West help this transition? Dr Emanuele Ottolenghi, a Senior Fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, and author of Iran: The Looming Crisis, and Under a Mushroom Cloud: Europe, Iran and the Bomb, answered these and other important questions in his talk for CIS. Dr Ottolenghi was in Australia as a guest of the Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council and discussed his extensive research into Iran's nuclear program, its human rights abuses, and the possibilities for democracy in the Middle East.

AIJAC's Jamie Hyams explains the Israeli-Palestinian deadlock

Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) Senior Policy Analyst Jamie Hyams interviewed on ABC News24 (28/9/11) explains why Palestinian intransigence and not Israeli settlement building is the real reason peace talks have not resumed since 2008. He also discusses why the announcement of approval for a proposed application to build 1,100 homes in the Jerusalem suburb of Gilo does not warrant international attention or condemnation.
