1973: The Road to War featuring Yigal Kipnis

Description:
While conflict with Syria dominates discussion in the U.S., Israelis are focusing on the 40th anniversary of the Yom Kippur War of 1973. Its outbreak is commemorated on Sept. 14 (Yom Kippur this year) according to the Hebrew calendar; on Oct. 6 according to the civil calendar. Israeli historian Yigal Kipnis, using newly declassified documents, revealed in his book published last year in Hebrew, that Egyptian President Sadat had proposed a peace plan before the war, but Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir had ignored it. Israelis were incensed when the revelations appeared; now Dr. Kipnis will discuss them at UMD to mark the book's publication in English. Dr. Yigal Kipnis teaches International Relations at Haifa University, lives in the Golan Heights, and was a pilot in the Israeli Air Force reserve for 26 years. Light refreshments will be served. {Will appear in FYI on Sep 19, 2013
