One Land Many Voices
Live interview with Rev. Dr. Naim Ateek, founder of Sabeel, an ecumenical grassroots liberation theology movement among Palestinian Christians. Also in the studio with Hala and Will, was Mary Trolan, a Palestinian Christian born in Jerusalem. Today's show is a sharing of family histories, experiences of the dispossession of 1948, the Nakba, and of their significance for understanding the current conflict.
This Friday's OLMV will feature a live interview with Mr. Eitan Bronstein, and Israeli educator and activist working with an organization called Zachrot ("remembering" or "those who remember"). This organization is dedicated to educating the Israeli public about the history of Al-Nakba (the Arabic word for catastrophe), the displacement and dispossession of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in 1948. Mr. Bronstein is will be coming through the United States with Muhammad Jaradat (a past guest on OLMV) of the Palestinian group, Badil, in a joint Badil/Zachrot US speaking tour: "Acknowledging the past; Imagining the future: Palestinians and Israelis on 1948 and the Right of Return."
