Galiliee Institute: How is the Sunni-Shia Tension Connected to the Israeli – Palestinian Conflict?

“Chairman of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, has asserted that Iran gave Hamas $250 million in 2009 for refusing an Egyptian-arranged reconciliation accord with them. Mr. Abbas said Hamas could receive up to $500 million a year from the mullah regime in Teheran".

What is the meaning of the connections between Hamas (Palestine) and Iran? Why is there tension between them? How is it related to the Israeli/Palestine conflict?

These questions and more will be discussed at the Galilee Institute winter session: "Two Nations and Three Religions in Israel and Palestine" that will be held on December 29, 2010 – January 10, 2011

Galilee Institute is currently offering tuition scholarships to eligible candidates.
