Debate

After two months of training on the art of debate, Bethlehem University debate teams were so creative in the recent debate organized by the Dean of Students Office and Debate club from the Action Aid, Palestine Global Platform. The topic of the debate was “this council believes that the dictatorship of Arab regimes has caused terrorism in the Middle East”. Many students, who attended the debate, were impressed by the audition of their friends, and they expressed their intention to join the debate club. Note that Action Aid have offered to support Bethlehem University with their Debating club. We thank the trainers from the organization Mr. Ahmad Dereiyeh and Mr. Humam Ghayyatheh. We also thank our students for their great participation.
