CANCELED - PRESENTER UNABLE TO MAKE IT TO CONFERENCE DUE TO SNOW STORM ON EAST COAST. Last April, Cohler-Esses traveled to Cairo on behalf of the Jewish Daily Forward to conduct a lengthy interview with Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook--the first in-depth interview Hamas has ever granted to a Jewish publication. This was but his most recent discussion with sworn enemies of the Jewish state for Jewish media outlets. Another was his interview with the mastermind of the Munich Olympics massacre. He will discuss these encounters and the journalistic and ethical issues they raise.
