Gershon Baskin, who co-founded the Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information with a Palestinian colleague, will be in the North Bay to discuss the think tank’s work and present its plan for a viable, democratic and peaceful two-state solution to the conflict in the Middle East.

Baskin will speak 7 p.m. Oct. 27 at B’nai Israel Jewish Center, 740 Western Ave., Petaluma. Sponsors are the congregation and the Jewish Community Relations Council.

Baskin believes in order for peace to be achieved, a new approach is necessary. In an Oct. 12 op-ed in the Jerusalem Post, he suggested that a “lose-lose” scenario is more likely to produce the desired results. “Both sides must feel the pain of the settlement,” he wrote. “No peace arrangement will be acceptable if one side perceives that the other is coming out the winner.”

The Israel/Palestine Center for Research and Information, composed equally of Israelis and Palestinians, is devoted to developing practical solutions for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
