On the fortieth anniversary of the White House signing ceremony of Israel’s peace treaty with Egypt, Israel’s peace movement Peace Now (Shalom Achshav) launched a campaign to remind Israelis of this historic peace treaty and its strategic value for Israel, and to underscore the fact that peace with the Palestinians and the entire Arab world is within reach.

Peace Now’s executive director, Shaqued Morag, talks about the new campaign and about the centerpiece of the campaign, an evocative short film.

This is a special episode of PeaceCast.

For the first time, we recorded PeaceCast before a live audience in Washington DC. We partnered with one of Israel’s most popular English language podcasts, the Tel Aviv Review.

We recorded it on March 7th 2019 at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The event was organized in partnership with J Street.

We hosted two journalists, Israeli journalist Amir Tibon of Haaretz and Palestinian journalist Said Arikat of al-Quds. Haaretz is published in Tel Aviv and al-Quds is published in Ramallah, in the West Bank. Amir and Said are the Washington correspondents of their newspapers.

The idea of this conversation was to explore how Said and Amir both cover the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from Washington.

This episode is released simultaneously on PeaceCast and on the Tel Aviv Review. Check out the Tel Aviv Review here: https://tlv1.fm/podcasts/tel-aviv-review-show/
