A Nonviolent Approach to the Middle East Conflict
Tuesday, September 28th 2010 7pm
Known as the Arab Gandhi, Mubarak Awad committed himself to a lifetime of nonviolence after his father was killed in fighting between Arabs and Jews.
As a leading voice for nonviolence and peace in the Holy Land, Awad contends that all traditions and religions can discover and embrace nonviolent approaches to social change, justice, and peace.
Awad will discuss the challenges, struggles, and successes of using nonviolence in the Middle East peace process, as well as the role of US citizens in Middle East policy making.
Awad is also the founder of the Palestinian Centre for the Study of Nonviolence.
