Ali Abunimah speaks: Hopeful Perspectives for Palestine
When: Monday, August 30, 7-9 pm
Where: Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship,
2333 San Juan Ave., Port Townsend
For all the dialogues, discussions, and debates about Israel/Palestine, one party’s voice has been underrepresented — that of Palestinians. Judging by the extent of discourse in this community, one could reasonably assume that Palestinians have no say in the matter.
Ali Abunimah, co-founder of the Electronic Intifada, is one of the most prominent Palestinian-American commentators on the Israel/Palestine conflict. He is the author of One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse He has published articles in the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, and the Los Angeles Times; he is a frequent radio commentator, and has appeared as a commentator on CNN, MSNBC, Al-Jazeera and other television news programs.
Abunimah was born to a refugee mother from the eradicated Palestinian village of Lifta and a father from Battir in the currently occupied West Bank.
“My parents taught me the importance of standing up for your rights but doing so in a way that is not tribal,” says Abunimah. “The Palestinian issue is about universal rights and about equality for everyone.”
