Wed 28 September 2016 | 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Prince - Nahalat Binyamin 18, Tel Aviv,

Join us for a lively discussion with Ron Ben-Yishai from Ynet News, Dr. Nimrod Hurvitz from the Forum for Regional Thinking and Sawsan Khalife’ from +972 Magazine on:

The influence of the Media on the public debate on terror in Israel and Germany (in English)

Despite the last wave of terror attacks, the Western world is still a relatively safe place to live in. Nevertheless, the media often create the impression that the West’s very existence is threatened by terror attacks, thereby invoking the notion of an overall state of emergency.

By attempting to make sense of the violent attacks in Israel and in Europe through designations such as “The War on Terror” or the “Clash of Civilizations”, the media shapes the political atmosphere, arouses panic, and erodes mutual tolerance.

Bringing together German and Israeli experts, the panel will address the question:

How do the media shape our understanding of Terror?

It will explore how the German and Israeli media cover terror groups and terror attacks, and in what ways the news coverage promotes a sense of emergency in both countries.
