A Voice for Justice and Peace in Israel/Palestine

Join important conversation on the Arab Spring, Gaza and Israeli-Palestinian conflict

Posted by rabbibrian on May 17, 2011

On Thursday, Taanit Tzedek- Jewish Fast for Gaza, is sponsoring a very timely and important call with Nadia Hijab, a Palestinian American human rights advocate, on “The Arab Spring, Gaza and the Israeli – Palestinian conflict.”  With signs that the Arab Spring has now spread to Palestine, the Hamas/Palestinian Authority Unity agreement,  the President’s speech on Thursday night, Netanyahu’s visit to the U.S., the aftermath of Nakhba Day, this call offers an opportunity for a serious conversation about current developments.  I encourage you to join us and please pass the word on to others who may be interested.
