Jerusalem - Israeli Peace Movement To Launch Online University
Jerusalem - Organizers of an online Mideast peace movement say they are launching the Internet’s first university for Israelis and Arabs across the Middle East
Former Israeli peace negotiator Uri Savir, founder of the “Yala Young Leaders” movement, says the group’s “Online Academy” will offer students courses in government, social networks, communications and skill development.
Savir said on Thursday that the new academy, set to go live in September, “can revolutionize relations between young people of the Middle East.”
The Yala Young Leaders group has attracted nearly 85,000 members on Facebook since it was launched a year ago. Savir says more than a quarter are young Egyptians.
