Reflections: 31 Years After Sabra & Shatila, 20 Years of Oslo
This month marks the anniversary of two important events in the history of the Palestinian struggle for justice. It is the 31st anniversary of the massacres at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Beirut during which an estimated 3000 Palestinian refugees lost their lives. It is also the 20th anniversary of the signing of the Oslo Accords between the PLO and Israel.
One Land Many Voices co-hosts, Zaha Hassan and Ned Rosch, will look back on those two events not only to remember what they meant to Palestinians and the world at the time, but also to consider what they mean today in the search for justice and peace.
The first half of the hour, the co-hosts will talk with Nabil Mohamad, survivor of the massacre at Sabra and Shatila. Nabil is currently the Vice President of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee and will be joining from Washington, D.C. (Nabil Mohamad is pictured above.)
In the second half of the hour, Dr. Mohammad Shtayyeh, senior negotiator for the Palestinians in the current US sponsored talks between the PLO and Israel, will be joining us from Ramallah to speak about Oslo and the prospects for a negotiated solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
