No Peace in the Middle East
Today we talk with Palestinian physician Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish. In 2009 during Israel’s invasion and bombardment of Gaza, a rocket hit his house killing three of his daughters and his niece. Author of “I Shall Not Hate,” Abuelaish has devoted his life to reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians.
And we'll talk to Greg Myre and Jennifer Griffin, husband and wife journalists. They first moved to Jerusalem in 1999 and had optimistic plans to begin a family and witness a historic Middle East peace deal. They soon found themselves raising two daughters while covering the worst fighting ever between Israelis and Palestinians. We’ll talk to them about their book “This Burning Land” that recounts their experience of the changes taking place in the Israeli Palestinian conflict over the past decade
