This Sunday: Omer Bartov on a Political Settlement for Israel/Palestine

Dec 1, 2023 | PDA News

Since the outbreak of the Israel/Gaza conflagration few voices have stood out in English language media like Omer Bartov, a Brown University professor, who has emphasized the necessity of re-launching negotiations for a political settlement. We are honored to be joined by him this Sunday at 4pm ET/1pm PT.  RSVP Now!


Omer300.jpgThe reason that Omer Bartov’s words have resonated with so many people is simple: His proposals are judicious and make a ton of sense.

In an appearance on Democracy Now! on November 1oth, Professor Bartov, an Israeli-American scholar of the Holocaust and Genocide Studies, spoke of a proposed solution to the longstanding crisis in Israel and occupied Palestine that can be thought of as between a one-state and a two-state solution—something that I call a confederated solution.  

It was the first I had heard of such a proposal, and in Professor Bartov’s compassionate voice—one that doesn’t deny the gross inequalities and injustices of the occupation, or turn a blind eye to the horror of the past eight weeks—the proposal struck me as something that progressives needed to hear about and seriously consider.

This is truly a Town Hall of the utmost importance.  

RSVP now for our Town Hall with Prof. Bartov this Sunday at 4pm ET/1pm PT – and ask your friends, family members, and co-workers to do the same.

We hope to see you!

In solidarity,
