These lectures are a series of free talks, open to the public and intended to expand our community’s knowledge and understanding of events and cultures in the Middle East. The Middle East Forum of Falmouth is the formal successor to the Ad Hoc Committee for Peace & Justice in the Middle East, which initiated this series and sponsored lectures each summer since 2002. Further information about the Forum, including a listing of the other upcoming lectures, is available on the website, www.meff.world. We are grateful to the Church of the Messiah for providing an air conditioned, handicap-accessible venue for these talks. Donations to support the speakers and the venue are greatly appreciated.
