David and Goliath: How the Palestinians Usurped Israel’s Image as the Biblical David
 Political Science
Imagery and the narrative are critical to understanding the behind-the-scenes ambiance that helps shape American Middle East foreign policy. For his entire 40-year distinguished diplomatic career, Arthur Green was at the nexus of Middle East foreign policy, strategic communication (aka Hasbara) and the international foreign correspondent community.

Using mainstream American print publications, Mr. Green designed an innovative, one-of-a-kind 2.0 kinetic web presentation that visually frames the iconic Middle East imagery from the early decades of the 20th century through 2012. Arthur will run the lecture along the lines of a graduate level symposium, encouraging the audience to actively contribute to the two-way dialogue and challenging the participants to think out-of-the-box.

Western civilization has been oriented to psychologically support the “underdog.” Think of the imagery that Life, Time and Newsweek have used to frame the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and you will begin to understand how grassroots American public opinion relates to the complexity of the troubled Holy Land.
