Recording - Israel-Palestine and US Public Opinion

Israel-Palestine and US Public Opinion

with Dr. Shibley Telhami

American public attitudes toward Israel and Palestine have dramatically shifted in the past few years, particularly among liberals. Whether on Capitol Hill or among the general public, open criticism of Israeli policies is no longer taboo, nor are questions relating to US aid to Israel. Public support for Palestinians under Israeli occupation and their quest for civil and human rights is no longer a fringe position. While the needle is moving, the Israel-Palestine question continues to be an increasingly polarizing issue in the US public sphere.

To analyze the recent developments and the overarching trends on this matter, APN hosted Prof. Shibley Telhami, a leading expert in public opinion on Israel-Palestine. In this webinar, Prof. Telhami presented findings from his recent poll on this issue and compared recent surveys to past data.

The webinar will be held on Thursday, September 2nd, at 12:00 noon.

Supporting Peace, Conditioning Aid

with APN Staff

APN is unveiling new policy position in support of conditioning United States aid to Israel. This position stems from our conviction that the US aid should not be used to cement and perpetuate the occupation, and thus undermine the long-term prospects for peace and the security of Israelis and Palestinians. Read President and CEO Hadar Susskind's article in Time magazine laying out the new policy here.

Listen below to the recording of a webinar discussing that new position.

Webinar Recording - Rebuilding Bridges between Israeli Arabs and Jews (June 3, 2021)

Listen here to our recent webinar. 

Rebuilding Bridges Between Arabs and Jews

with Maisam Jaljuli and Shuli Dichter

In recent years, while Israeli government policies and Knesset legislation challenged efforts to advance a shared Jewish-Arab society in Israel, Jewish and Arab activists were successfully building genuine bridges between the two publics, based on a sense of shared citizenhood.

Did the recent eruption of inter-communal Jewish-Arab hostilities smash these bridges? Could they be rebuilt? What should be the foundation for an effective Jewish-Arab shared society in Israel? Does the recent crisis open opportunities to establish such a solid foundation?

To answer these and other questions on the state of Jewish-Arab relations in Israel, APN will host a webinar featuring two leading activists in this field, Maisam Jaljuli and Shuli Dichter.

The webinar was held on Thursday, June 3rd
