PDA Sunday Progressive Town Hall, December 3, 2023 with Omer Bartov

PDAMERICA • Streamed live 5 hours ago Since the outbreak of the Israel/Gaza conflagration few voices have stood out in English language media like Omer Bartov, a Brown University professor, who has emphasized the necessity of re-launching negotiations for a political settlement. We are honored to be joined by him this Sunday at 4pm ET/1pm PT. RSVP Now! The reason that Omer Bartov’s words have resonated with so many people is simple: His proposals are judicious and make a ton of sense. In an appearance on Democracy Now! on November 1oth, Professor Bartov, an Israeli-American scholar of the Holocaust and Genocide Studies, spoke of a proposed solution to the longstanding crisis in Israel and occupied Palestine that can be thought of as between a one-state and a two-state solution—something that I call a confederated solution. It was the first I had heard of such a proposal, and in Professor Bartov’s compassionate voice—one that doesn’t deny the gross inequalities and injustices of the occupation, or turn a blind eye to the horror of the past eight weeks—the proposal struck me as something that progressives needed to hear about and seriously consider. This is truly a Town Hall of the utmost importance.
