National Conference Call on U.S. Policy and the Crisis in Palestine Teach-In | July 30, 2007


The U.S. Campaign presented a telephone teach-in on Monday, July 30 at 9:00PM EST to provide some basic background on the political crisis going on in Gaza and the West Bank, and within the broader Palestinian national movement, with a special focus on the role of the U.S. in fomenting and exacerbating that crisis.

We had two presenters, and then opened up for about an hour of Q&A and discussion on the call.

NADIA HIJAB, from the Institute for Palestine Studies, will provide an overview on the Palestinian dimensions of the crisis. Hijab serves on the US Campaign Advisory Board;

PHYLLIS BENNIS, from the Institute for Policy Studies and the US Campaign Steering Committee,
will look at the role U.S. policy is
playing in the crisis as well as the international ramifications.
