Hala Gores is joined in the studio with special guest, attorney Tom Nelson. Bill Corcoran also joins the conversation by telephone from Washington DC.
Mr. Corcoran is President of American Near East Refugee Aid (ANERA) and just returned from a visit to Gaza where he had an opportunity to assess the devastation of Israel's assault on the people of Gaza. ANERA was incorporated in 1968 to help ease the suffering of Palestinian refugees after the Arab-Israeli War of 1967. It has become one of the largest American non-profits working solely in the Middle East for 40 years. In fiscal year 2008, ANERA delivered more than $50 million worth of donated medicine and medical supplies into Gaza, the West Bank and Lebanon.
