Senator Joseph Lieberman delivered the Fourth Annual Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture entitled “The End of the War on Terror” at Stanford University on October 18, 2009. The lecture focused on the consequences of Islamist extremism on both western and Muslim countries.
“What we are witnessing is not a war between civilizations, as the extremists want us to believe, but a civil war within Islam,” the Senator said. Students, teachers, alumni and local residents also engaged the Senator in a challenging question and answer session. This lecture was co-sponsored by the Daniel Pearl Foundation, Stanford University’s Office of the President and Office for Religious Life, and Hillel at Stanford.
