Description: The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one of the most complex and polarizing conflicts in modern history. Nearly seventy years after the foundation of Israel and fifty years since the beginning of the occupation of Gaza and the West Bank territories, the struggle between the two sides seems to be almost as far from a resolution as when it first began.
How can Israeli and Palestinian leaders move toward a sustainable peace? Is a two-state solution the answer? Can the US and the international community help to bridge gaps and bring the two sides together? Join us for a conversation about the prospects for achieving peace and why it matters so much to the US and the world.
Maen Rashid Areikat, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, The General Delegation of the Palestine Liberation Organization to the United States, and Jeremy Ben-Ami
Founder & President, J Street, are in discussion.
The conversation is moderated by Janine Zacharia, Former Jerusalem Bureau Chief and Middle East Correspondent, The Washington Post.

Description: Doaa Yasseen, 11 years old, is one of the many children affected by unexploded remnants from past conflicts in the Gaza Strip. Like others, she has suffered physically and psychologically as a result of the incident.
A year ago, Doaa was on her way home from school when a strange object on the side of the road caught her attention. Curious to see what it was, she took it and started playing with it. The innocent game finished with the device exploding in her right hand.
“I thought it was a toy before it exploded in my hand,” says Doaa.
Today, Doaa is still adapting to the changes in her life. She attends support sessions with other children affected by unexploded remnants. The sessions help them to regain their self-confidence and look towards the future.
