Cong. William Delahunt spoke in a special program on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict Sunday, Jan. 29, at the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center in Vineyard Haven. The program began at 12:30 pm.

The session was moderated by Bill Gamson, a year-round Chilmark resident and chairman of the Martha’s Vineyard chapter of Brit Tzedek v’Shalom - the Jewish Alliance Justice and Peace). Mr. Delahunt, a member of the House international Relations Committee, will respond to comments from a panel of experts. Among the questions under consideration will be:

  • What should the U.S. government do to facilitate a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
  • What should Congress do to push the U.S. government to take an active role? What should and can a Democratic congressman do in a Republican controlled Congress to facilitate a negotiated two-state solution?
Included on the panel will be Herbert C. Kelman, the Richard Clarke Cabot professor of social ethics at Harvard University, and David Matz, a professor of dispute resolution at the University of Massachusetts at Boston.

After Mr. Delahunt’s remarks, the audience will be invited to address questions or comments to him and to the panelists.

The Arab-Israeli Situation in Flux: A Palestinian and Israeli Dialogue
Since Yassir Arafat’s death, the possibility of a settlement between the Israelis and the Palestinians has improved. The election of Mahmoud Abbas as president of the Palestinian Authority has already changed the situation. The formation of a new coalition government in Israel with the Likud and Labor parties is another important shift. How these changes will play out, especially in view of the latest terrorist attacks and the Israeli response, is unclear.

Come to the Hebrew Center on February 6 at 3:00 pm to hear and discuss with two talented and experienced people who are close to the situation. For more information, send an email.
