|Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh is not an ivory tower theorist -|
he backs up his words with actions.
Sharing the Land of Canaan: human rights and the Israeli/Palestinian Struggle (English and Spanish) and Popular Resistance in Palestine: A history of Hope and Empowerment (Arabic and English, forthcoming in French and Italian). He also has an activism book published electronically on his web site (http://qumsiyeh.org). His main interest is media activism and public education.
Second hour: Richard Forer, a Jewish American from a pro-Zionist family, had been a loyal defender of Israeli policy all his life and zealously supported Israel’s 2006 invasion of Lebanon. In response to what he perceived as growing global anti-Semitism, he became a member of AIPAC, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
Angry that two of his most trusted friends resisted his views, and surprised that a long-time Jewish friend would suggest that his opinions were not as factually based as he assumed, Forer began an intensive study of the history of the Israel-Palestine...and the rest is history.
Rich's book is entitled: Breakthrough: Transforming Fear into Compassion – A New Perspective on the Israel-Palestine Conflict.
