Fifty Years and Counting: Is the Israeli Occupation Sustainable?
June 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5.00 - $15.00
WHEN: Wednesday, 13 June 2018 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
WHERE: Knox Presbyterian Church – 120 Lisgar Street, Ottawa, ON
The Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territory is currently the longest in the world, at 50 years and counting. The Israeli settlement population continues to grow faster than the Israeli population, annexation legislation is being debated in the Israeli Knesset, and the peace process that ended in April 2014 shows no sign of revival. Gaza has become a serious humanitarian crisis, the Palestinian economy is flat-lining and the predominant mood in the occupied territory is despair. Amidst this gloom, is there any room for optimism for a sustainable and just peace accord between Israel and Palestine?
