The Escalating Crisis in Israel/Palestine:

A Discussion of Recent Events

Event links on Facebook and Twitter

(please help forward announcement)

Join the Rachel Corrie Foundation for a panel discussion and open Q & A about the current crisis in Israel/Palestine.  With the collapse of the Peace Process, the establishment of a unity government, and recent deaths on both sides, what do we need to know?  What is the media telling us and what is being left out? Come discuss what our response as tax-paying citizens who fund the actions taken by the Israeli military should be.

Moderator: Andrew Meyer, RCF Staff

Panelist Bios:

Dr. Karam Dana is a Palestinian-American academic. He is an Assistant Professor of Middle East and Islamic Studies at the University of Washington Bothell. His Middle East-related research explores elite politics in Palestinian society in the 1920s and 1930s, Palestinian public opinion, the intersection between economics and politics and the changing state-society relations in the Arab Middle East.

Sallie Shawl retired after 30 years in social service work in Tacoma, is a founding member of the Tacoma chapter of Jewish Voice for Peace as well as Puget Sound Interfaith Youth Camp. Shawl vowed that “Never Again” means “Never Again for all people,” and it is her Jewish upbringing of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) and “Don’t do to others what you don’t want done to you” that propels her forward in her work for Palestinian human rights and a just peace.

Israeli Supreme Court Decision Anticipated in Coming Months to Year in Corrie Case

See trial page for related information.

Members of the Corrie family attended oral appeal arguments before the Israeli Supreme Court in Jerusalem on May 21, 2014, in the family’s wrongful death lawsuit against the Government of Israel for the Israeli military’s 2003 killing of Rachel Corrie in Rafah, Gaza. Appeal arguments filed by the family attempt to overturn a 2012 lower court verdict. A final decision from the Israeli Supreme Court is not anticipated for months to a year and will be rendered in writing.

News of the decision will be posted to the Rachel Corrie Foundation’s website, Twitter, and Facebook pages as soon as it is available.
