Reflections: 31 Years After Sabra & Shatila & 20 Years of Oslo

 

 

This month marks the anniversary of two important events in the history of the Palestinian struggle for justice.  It is the 31st anniversary of the massacres at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Beirut during which an estimated 3000 Palestinians lost their lives. It is also the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Oslo Accords between the PLO and Israel.  

One Land Many Voices co-hosts, Zaha Hassan and Ned Rosch will look back to those two events not only to remember what they meant to Palestinians and the world at the time, but also to consider what they mean today in the search for justice and peace. 

The first half of the show will include an interview with Nabil Mohamad, Vice President of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, who was the only one of his family to survive the massacres in Sabra and Shatila. 

In the second half of the show, Dr. Mohammad Shtayyeh, senior negotiator for the Palestinians in the current US sponsored talks between the PLO and Israel, will be joining us from Ramallah.
