Wexler represented northern Broward and southwestern Palm Beach counties for 13 years until he resigned early in 2010 to become president of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace in Washington, D.C.
The Abraham Center is currently trying to get various U.S. constituencies involved in a dialogue over the issues confronting the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and Wexler’s series of appearances in his old congressional district are part of that effort.
He’s visiting 15 cities across the country in coming months and is involved in a similar effort in Europe.
“As the United States has an indispensable role to play in resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it is crucial that our public discourse is rooted in a comprehensive understanding of Israel’s security needs and what constitutes an independent, contiguous Palestinian state,” Wexler said in a statement. “Resolving the conflict will ensure that Israel maintains its identity as a Jewish and democratic state.
“Despite recent tensions, America’s strategic relationship with Israel remains unbreakable,” Wexler said. “On both the Palestinian issue and the Iranian nuclear issue, the United States and Israel share the same fundamental objectives: a negotiated two-state solution that constitutes an ‘end of claims’ agreement, and the prevention of an Iranian nuclear weapon.”
The center said these events are open to the public:
Tuesday, 3 p.m., Shirley & Barton Weisman Delray Community Center, 7091 W. Atlantic Ave., west of Delray Beach.
Wednesday, 12:30 p.m., Congregation B’nai Torah, 6261 SW 18th St, Boca Raton.
Wednesday, 4 p.m., Boca Lago Country Club, 8665 Juego Way, Boca Raton.
Update: an earlier notice that a Tuesday evening event was open to the public has been updated. It's full, the center said Monday evening.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
