Important Web seminar! Panelists include Huda Abuarquob (Alliance for Middle East Peace’s director in 2014, experienced in conflict resolution, NGO leadership, and social-change education and activism; resident of Hebron), Daniel Seidemann (Israeli attorney specializing in Israeli–Palestinian relations with an emphasis on Jerusalem), and Hagit Ofran (codirector of Peace Now’s Settlement Watch project).
From the notice forwarded by Americans for Peace Now:
Recent days have seen a further escalation in violence in Jerusalem even beyond what we were seeing in the past few weeks. With the violent events at Al-Aqsa mosque, police crackdowns on Palestinian protesters, the threat of home evictions in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood, and the Jerusalem Day Flag March, the city is in a state of crisis. Hamas rockets have fallen near Jerusalem — and have been met by retaliatory attacks in Gaza.
Join us for an urgent conversation about this volatile and highly dynamic situation, with leading Palestinian and Israeli experts from Jerusalem to update us about what is happening on the ground, what Israelis and Palestinians are doing, and what we can do from afar.
