Rula Jebreal

Rula Jebreal is an award-winning journalist, author, and foreign policy analyst.

Her first novel, Miral, sold two million copies and was made into a major motion picture.

She frequently appears on CNN, HBO and Bloomberg News, and has contributed op-eds to The New York Times, The Washington Post, Foreign Policy, The Guardian, Newsweek, The Nation, and San Jose Mercury News.

Jebreal has anchored multiple television shows in both Italy and Egypt, and reports extensively from across the Middle East, Europe, and the U.S., frequently challenging Islamophobic rhetoric and media on its coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Jebreal will be discussing why lumping all Muslims into one monolithic, extremist-linked bracket is actually a victory for ISIS, as well as how and why the media abrogates its responsibility to cover all sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
