Palestine: Moral Questions
Sari Nusseibeh, a leading advocate for a two-state solution to the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, describes the current state of Israeli-Palestinian relations from both political and personal points of view and assesses the prospects for peace. Nusseibeh, a philosophy professor and the president of Al Quds University in Jerusalem, recently served as the 2004–05 Rita E. Hauser Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, at Harvard University. In 2001 he was appointed the political representative of the Palestinians in East Jerusalem, and in 2003 he launched (with former Israeli security chief Ami Ayalon) a nonpartisan initiative for peace called People’s Voice.
Nusseibeh is introduced by Benjamin Braude, a history professor and codirector of Boston College’s Middle Eastern and Islamic studies program.
