Event description
Armin Navabi will talk about how history and religion impede the possibility of reconciliation in the Israel-Palestine debate.

About this Event

Armin Navabi is an Iranian Canadian, who is an ex-Muslim atheist and secular activist, author and podcaster. He founded an online free thought community called Atheist Republic which is a non-profit organization for secularists around the world to discuss irreligion, apostasy and blasphemy where it is often repressed and even criminalized. He has travelled across the world to discuss religious criticism and was deplatformed at Calgary’s Mount Royal University for attempting to discuss Islam.

At the event, Navabi will be addressing the question of Israel and Palestine, narrowing his scope to the topics of history and religiosity that has surrounded this debate - impeding the possibility of reconciliation starting from a grassroots level. Navabi intends to construct his views along the lines of the experiences he had when travelling to both Israel and Palestine, deconstructing socio-political stigmas both within the region, and stigmas existing in the eyes of their neighbours.

This event will take place at the Earth and Ocean Sciences building, room 2012 at UBC Vancouver campus on Thursday, September 19th, from 7 pm until 10 pm.

The Students for Freedom of Expression neither endorse nor condemn Navabi’s views. We are simply hosting him to arouse debate between students and his ideas.
