5/7 - A Way Forward for Israel-Palestine

Air date: 
Wed, 05/07/2014 - 8:00am - 11:00am
Short Description: 
A special program on how we can achieve peace with justice
With the breakdown of peace talks, expansion of settlements, and harsh rhetoric currently passing for 'dialogue' in the Israel-Palestine conflict, it's sometimes hard to have hope that this entrenched conflict can come to a peaceful resolution.

On this special program, we'll show you that there is still reason to hope.  Max Blumenthal, Miko Peled, and Ali Abunimah are all deeply involved in this issue, and all have this in common: they believe that there will be peace with justice in Israel-Palestine in our lifetimes.

We'll bring you the voices of an Israeli, a Palestinian and an American who are on the frontlines in the struggle for a just peace in Israel-Palestine.
