This episode is an edited version of a July 23rd 2020 webinar with Peace Now's Hagit Ofran, one of the leading authorities on West Bank settlements and on settlements in East Jerusalem.

Her recent report, Annex and Dispossess, documents the way in which Israeli authorities have been using the Absentee Property Law to transfer Palestinian real estate in East Jerusalem to settlers. The report points out ways in which Israel's government could emulate this method to dispossess Palestinians of their land and homes in the West Bank once parts of the West Bank are annexed to Israel.

New Story Leadership is a program that every summer brings to Washington five Israelis and five Palestinians for a program aimed at empowering young leaders who will advance mutual Israeli-Palestinian understanding, tolerance and peace.

Americans for Peace Now has partnered with NSL since its inception, more than ten years ago.

This year, due to COVID-19, the Israeli and Palestinians who were chosen for this summer’s program had to stay home and participate in the program virtually, online. They will travel to DC, COVID permitting, next summer.

In past years, we brough NSL delegates to PeaceCast. This episode is a COVID-era attempt to bring NSL’s voices to you, PeaceCast’s listeners. It’s an opportunity to listen to young Israelis and Palestinians who are acting, separately and together, to build bridges between their communities and to forge hope for a better future.
