Dr. Marc Ellis, Jewish thinker, author and theologian, visited BBC this week. His gave a lecture about Jewish Liberation Theology, defining it as a power struggle between Jews and Christians who view Israel through the lens of empire as opposed to those who seek a prophetic approach to resolving the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. His analysis is that Jewish history is moving forward in the direction of empire while Jews of conscience are increasingly in diaspora with Palestinians. A spirited dialogue followed his excellent diagnosis of the conflict. Marc is also consulting with BBC about the possibility of establishing a peace studies program in the future.
