Red Sea Spies: The True Story of Mossad’s Fake Diving Resort @ Commonpoint Queens Virtual Speaker Event
Oct 4 @ 1:00 pm
Red Sea Spies: The True Story of Mossad’s Fake Diving Resort @ Commonpoint Queens Virtual Speaker Event

In the early 1980s on a remote part of the Sudanese coast, a new luxury holiday resort opened for business. Catering to divers, it attracted guests from around the world. Little did the vacationers know that the staff were undercover spies working for the Mossad – Israel’s intelligence agency. Red Sea Spies, written by longtime BBC Middle East Editor Raffi Berg, tells the true story of what began with one cryptic message pleading for help and turned into a secret evacuation of thousands of Ethiopian Jews in refugee camps, spiriting them to Israel. These events inspired the recent Netflix drama The Red Sea Diving Resort.

All fall speakers are $8 members / $10 non-members.

Friendly Fire: How Israel Became Its Own Worst Enemy – Virtual Speaker: Retired Admiral Ami Ayalon @ Commonpoint Queens Virtual Speaker Event
Oct 18 @ 12:00 pm
Friendly Fire: How Israel Became Its Own Worst Enemy - Virtual Speaker: Retired Admiral Ami Ayalon @ Commonpoint Queens Virtual Speaker Event | New York | United States

Retired Admiral Ami Ayalon, a former director of Israel’s Shin Bet security agency, shares his own thoughts and philosophy about what Israel needs to do to achieve relative peace and security and to sustain itself as a Jewish homeland and a liberal democracy. In Friendly Fire, Ayalon shares his deeply personal journey of discovery, seeking input and perspective from both Palestinians and Israelis whose experiences differ from his own and from each other.

Join Commonpoint Queens, along with Prof. Mark Rosenblum who will moderate the discussion, to hear how Ayalon has come to realize that the sustainable and democratic Jewish homeland for which he repeatedly risked his life can only be realized side-by-side with a Palestinian state whose citizens have genuine hope for their own bright future.

A former Flotilla 13 (Israel’s navy SEALS) commando, a commander of the navy, cabinet minister, Knesset member, Ami Ayalon was the recipient of the Medal of Valor, Israel’s highest military decoration.

An expert on the Middle East, Prof. Mark Rosenblum is Director of the Ibrahim Student Leadership and Dialogue Middle East Program with Queens College, and Director Emeritus of the Center for Jewish Studies and the Center for Ethnic, Racial, and Religious Understanding.
