Middle East Michegas: The Israel-Palestine Conflict


September General Meeting
(On Monday, not the usual Tuesday)

The Gray Panthers Mideast Study Group has been meeting regularly to open the discussion that we all seem to shy away from: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and all the controversial surrounding issues. In our September general meeting, we hope to broaden the discussion to include all interested Gray Panthers.

The meeting will include a screening of the August 14 Howard Live TV program, "Peace in the Middle East, What Bay Area People are Doing" with Joel Frangquist, Jewish Voice for Peace, and Joy Totah Hilden, co-leader of the East Bay Dialogue Group. There also will be talks on how the occupation of Palestine is hurting Israel's citizens, the Gaza situation, and how Arab-Jewish relations turned from peaceable to hostile in the early 1900s. Location: Unitarian-Universalist Center, 1187 Franklin St (at Geary, map), Murdoch room.
