Hanan Ashrawi, Palestinian leader, and Nihad Boqai, Palestinian activist living in Israel

This show features remarkable interviews recently recorded in Palestine and
Israel by One Land Many Voices co-host, Zaha Hassan. The interviews are with
Hanan Ashrawi, an internationally known and respected Palestinian leader whose powerful eloquence always inspires, and Nihad Boqai, a deeply committed Palestinian activist living in Israel.

In the second half of the show, Nihad Boqai, a Palestinian artist and writer who lives in northern Israel and formerly served as Coordinator of the Research and Information Unit of Badil Resource Center for Palestinian Refugee and  Residency Rights, describes the many challenges Palestinian citizens of Israel face and the need for Palestinians living in Israel to see themselves as part of the Palestinian nation.
