Top Stories

• The Orlando Sentinel published the Dec. 4 article “Commentary: Israel-Palestine conflict has decades of wounds” by Paul Croce, PhD, professor of History and a member of Historians for Peace and Democracy, including its Committee on Israel-Gaza.

Paul Croce, PhD

“Current politics is stuck,” Croce wrote. “… Weirdly, Hamas and militant Israelis, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party, need each other, with each extreme action justifying extreme actions on the other side. Politics needs a boost. The boost I bring is from my research on William James (1842-1910), the founder of American psychology. He offers keen insights on ways to listen across differences, especially in difficult cases, ways to move beyond the reflex responses to fight fighting with fighting. Listening has a shot, but it needs the support that his psychology offers.”
