The Effects of Annexation on Communities and Families
Israel’s threatened annexation of the West Bank poses severe human rights consequences for the Palestinian people. If annexation moves forward, the Israeli government will be seizing the land that belongs to local Palestinian farming and shepherding communities. Families who have lived on their land, often for hundreds of years, will be forced from their homes. Hear from a Palestinian whose human rights will be directly affected by annexation and an Israeli who stands beside him. This conversation was moderated by Partners for Progressive Israel’s Vice President, Karen Shapiro and Beth Schuman, the Executive Director of Combatants for Peace. This webinar was co-sponsored by Combatants for Peace and American Friends of Combatants for Peace.
