A Radio Special: Jeff Halper, A Jewish Voice for Peace

On Thursday, July 19 at 12 Noon, WPKN 89.5 and WPKM 88.7
will present

Jeff Halper: A Jewish Voice for Peace

The peace activist and Coordinator of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions was interviewed in Oakland CA at a meeting of Jewish Voice for Peace by Hazel Kahan of WPKN's East End News Team.

Halper is a U.S. born anthropologist who has taught at Ben Gurion Univ. and at the Friends World Institute at Southampton College.

Jeff Halper spoke about the impact of the Israeli occupation of Palestine on both Israelis and Palestinians and about the effect of world opinion on the prospects for a just peace.

Halper says that Israel will soon announce a plan to declare the route of the wall or separation barrier now being built as the provisional borders between Israel and Palestine. He says the "two state solution" is effectively dead and the system in place is apartheid (the South African term for separation).

Tune in for Jeff Halper: A Jewish Voice for Peace
on WPKN - 89.5 Bridgeport and WPKM - 88.7 Montauk
Thursday, July 19 at 12 Noon.
