Palestinian Awad Abdulfatteh and Israeli Jeff Halper discuss equal treatment for all people of Israel/Palestine in this webinar by Canada Talks Israel Palestine. They present a vision consistent with everyone’s moral values, a state where all people are treated as equals. Jeff Halper is a founder of the Israel Committee Against House Demolitions (ICAHD), a non-violent direct-action organization established in 1997 to end Israel’s military occupation over Palestinians. Halper envisions the return of Palestinian refugee families, saying, “All refugees have a right to return…. Just because you flee a country in war or are driven out of a country, doesn’t mean you lose your civil status… Bringing the refugees home is bringing our citizens home.” Awad Abdelfattah is a political writer and the former general secretary of the Balad party. He is the coordinator of the Haifa-based One Democratic State Campaign. Learn more about civil rights in Israel/Palestine at the Promised Land Museum.
