"American Rabbi Practices Peacemaking in Damascus" - Haaretz
In recent years, Rabbi Marc Gopin increasingly finds himself in meetings with senior religious leaders in Syria, where he is considered a guest of honor. Gopin is the director of the Center for World Religions, Diplomacy and Conflict Resolution and professor at the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University. He is a strong believer of the potential religious texts have to encourage peace making. Video courtesy of Haaretz.com TV, April 22, 2008.
