NEME hosted a series of webinars in June 2020 to discuss the proposed annexation by Israel of portions of the West Bank and its implications for the people living there as well as its impact on the pursuit of the cause of just peace in the Middle East. Links to those webinars can be found below.
"Annexation 101": Bruce Fisk hosted the conversation with Mae Cannon, Heather Keaney, and Sam Bahour, discussed what Israel’s proposed annexation of territory means, what it would change on the ground for Israelis and Palestinians, and why many around the world believe it would undermine the cause of a just peace in the Middle East.
"The Bible and the Land of Promise: A Christian Conversation": Rob Dalrymple hosted a panel of Christian scholars (Joel Willitts, Craig Blaising, Gary Burge, and Daniel Bannoura) for a conversation asking what does the Bible say about the Holy Land? Did God promise it all to the descendant of Abraham? Where does that leave Israelis and Palestinians today?
“Race, Militarization/Policing, and Annexation”: Dr. Andrea Smith of UC Riverside with Sahar Vardi of the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) in Jerusalem discussed what roles do race and militarization play in Israeli society? And how do they intersect with the proposed Israeli government's annexation of parts of the West Bank?
