How to Speak Liberal

Israeli public diplomacy ("Hasbara") is failing, not because of a lack of enthusiastic speakers - but because of a lack of knowledge and understanding in Israel of western, liberal values and perception, and thus Israel's messages are failing to convince. We believe that in order to comprehensively tell our side of the conflict, with its nuances and imperfections, it is not enough to speak English - we need to speak liberal.

In this workshop, we'll present a liberal strategy for public diplomacy: from the basics of the progressive ideology and how it views the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, through presenting a progressive concept of Zionism, to common critics of Israel - and the appropriate liberal response to them.
