Dennis Ross to Speak in Early May

Ambassador Dennis Ross will be giving his second public lecture at Marquette on Tuesday, May 3 at 7-9 pm in the Weasler Auditorium. A reception will follow.

Ross has been a bit of a lightening rod at Marquette, drawing the ire of the more activist Arab students, who have derided him as a “Zionist.” “Peacemaker” would be a better term, but for some of the more radical cultivators of Palestinian victimhood, making any peace that allows Israel to exist as a Jewish state is a sell-out.

Those folks will have had their say on campus during the Arab Heritage Celebration, so early May would be a good time to hear from somebody who might be part of the solution, not part of the problem.
