Unofficial Channels: Dialogue for Middle East Peace

Here’s a show from our archives 1998 –still apt today.

Displaced from their land after the 1948 Arab-Israeli war, Palestinian people have been struggling for autonomy. Some are calling for an independent state. Disputes over land and resource allocations, and periodic flare-ups of violence, however, have complicated negotiations involving Palestinians and Israelis. Meanwhile, the Israeli government continues to develop new housing tracts on disputed territory. Over the past few years, some Palestinians and Jews — both in the United States and in Israel — have been circumventing official negotiation channels and developing dialogue among themselves.
