Shalom Portland July 28 2010 - East Jerusalem Zoning and Planning - and J Street Community of YES
On this Shalom Portland we revisit the issue of planning and home demolitions in East Jerusalem. We speak first with Akiva Tor, Israeli Consul General for the Pacific Northwest. Topics will also include the conversion bill, and other topics related to the peace process.
We speak next with Efrat Cohen-Bar from the Israeli NGO Bimkom, whose mission is to strengthen democracy and human rights in the field of planning. We'll talk about home demolitions and civic planning in East Jerusalem, and how the situation today for Palestinian residents compares to that in the past, and how it could improve.
We finally talk with Gordon Gladstone, Western Regional Director of J Street regarding the Community of YES campaign, and the efforts by J Street to support candidates for Congress that are in favor of the peace process.
