Those of us concerned about the future of the Palestinian people view that future with increasing trepidation, not only because of the increasing severity of the Israeli military occupation, the continuing financial and political support of the United States, but also because of the unstable political environment and lack of leadership. Hamas rules Gaza, Fatah rules the West Bank, and those parties are continually at each other’s throats. Why is the political scene so chaotic and where is the new Palestinian leadership? In our first feature presentation today, those questions are put to Columbia University Professor Rashid Khalidi by Nader Hashemi at a conference sponsored by the Center for Middle East Studies at the Joseph Korbel School of International Studies.

In a change of pace, our next presentation features another courageous Palestinian voice, that of architect, author, and storyteller, Suad Amiry. She speaks about the journey of her family following the Nakba, highlighted by commentary on some of her writings. We'll hear an interview of Suad Amiry by Riz Khan on the now defunct Al Jezeera English Network.
