Israel and Hamas fight intensifies as outside countries urge ceasefire: Former Tel Aviv University professor available to comment

January 5, 2009

The news continues to be grim from the Middle East as Israel has escalated its offensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. Casualties on both sides are mounting and outside countries are calling for a truce. A University of Minnesota expert available to comment on all aspects of the conflict is:
Oren Gross, University of Minnesota Law School professor

Gross can explain the causes for the operation into Gaza, how proportionality of forces matters (a military against a militant group), Israel and Hamas in general, possible ramifications for the region and the future Obama administration and the conflict. Gross is an expert on the Middle East and the Arab-Israeli conflict. Prior to coming to the University of Minnesota, Gross was a member of the faculty of the Tel Aviv University Law School in Israel.
