One Land Many Voices on 07/27/12
This week on One Land, Many Voices, Wael and Will welcome Rev. Dr. Jeffrey DeYoe and Ms. Cecilie Surasky for a discussion of the recent Presbyterian Church General Assembly vote on divestment.
Cecilie Surasky is deputy director of Jewish Voice for Peace, an organization engaged with the divestment efforts that sent representatives to the General Assembly. She is also the editor of Muzzlewatch, JVP's widely read blog documenting the use of attacks and intimidation aimed at silencing open discussion of Israel-Palestine policy, like the law suit aimed at organizers of the Olympia Coop boycott of Israeli goods. Reverend DeYoe is a Presbyterian minister in Ft. Myers, Florida, serving the Presbyterian Church in the US for 31 years. He is the Advocacy Chairperson for the Presbyterian Church Israel Palestine Mission Network, and for the past two years has served on the National Presbyterian Middle East Monitoring Group.
