|"Jerusalem Under Threat"|
Public Meeting on one of the key issues of Israeli/Palestinian Conflict
Settlement expansion, evictions, demolitions, and laws which many feel are discriminatory - Palestinians living in East Jerusalem are under threat as is the status of the city as a spiritual centre for the 3 Abrahamic religions and as the possible capital of a future Palestinian state.
A panel of speakers will discuss one of the key issues of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict:
Dr. Ghada Karmi – Palestinian writer ('In Search of Fatima'; 'Married to Another Man'), fellow and lecturer at the Institute of Arab & Islamic Studies, University of Exeter.
Rev. Stephen Sizer – Pastor of the community church of Christ Church, Virginia Water, Surrey, writer on Christian Zionism & patron of many organizations such as Friends of Sabeel & ICAHD
Arthur Goodman – Chair of Jews for Justice for Palestinians
Dr. Daud Abdullah – Director of the Middle East Monitor, author and former Asst. Sec. Gen. of the Muslim Council of Britain
‘Jerusalem is already one of the trickiest issues on the road to reaching a final status agreement between Israel and the Palestinians. But several inter-linked Israeli policies are reducing the possibility of reaching a final status agreement on Jerusalem that any Palestinian could accept. We judge that this is a deliberate Israeli policy - the completion of the annexation of East Jerusalem.’ Suppressed EU report 2005
