Everything You Need to Know About Annexation
11 June 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
As early as July 1, the Israeli government could begin annexing West Bank territory. This radical step has the potential of sparking a violent uprising, institutionalising an undemocratic regime and increasing tensions between Jews and Arabs. Join New Israel Fund UK for a one-hour, 360° annexation briefing with Israel’s top experts on security, democracy, human rights and Israel’s regional relationships.
We will learn about the security implications of annexation from, Col (Ret) Shaul Arieli, one of Israel’s foremost experts on the conflict; Maisam Jaljuli, a senior member of Israel’s Jewish-Arab grassroots movement, will discuss the implications for Jewish-Arabs relations; Leading Israeli human rights lawyer, Sharon Abraham-Weiss, will explore what the policy will mean for Palestinian human rights, and; Dr Assaf David of the Forum for Regional Thinking will discuss the implications for Israel’s strategic relations.
