Khader El-Yateem was born in Bethlehem. He was a 19-year-old theology student when Israeli police raided his home, woke him from sleep, arrested him without charge and subjected him to 57 days in solitary confinement. His brother-in-law, an international attorney, was able to secure Khader’s release. Khader went on to complete his studies and was ordained a priest in the Lutheran Church. In 1992, he was sent by the Lutheran Bishop of Jerusalem to Brooklyn, New York, to minister to the large Arab immigrant population there.

Understanding Violence Against Muslim Minorities in Indonesia

Wednesday, November 11, 2020 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm
Virtual
Sponsored By: 
Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding, Walsh School of Foreign Service

Event:
This talk explores why violence against Indonesia’s Muslim minority sects—specifically the Ahmadiyah sect and the Shi’a sect—unexpectedly emerged and escalated over the past two decades. Demonstrating how the occupation of public space by Muslim minorities were perceived as a challenge to Sunni Muslim dominance and how decentralization reforms incentivized political actors to engage in conflict, this talk identifies factors driving Indonesia’s shift towards illiberalism. In doing so, it speaks to broader concerns about the state of democracy in the world today.
