One Response to Director of Palestinian conflict resolution center talks of hope

  • Jactive:

    Thanks for posting your interview with Zoughbi, in which he stressed the importance of hope combined with action.

    I heard him speak last night at the University Lutheran Church and was very moved by his witness of nonviolence in the face of ongoing Israeli occupation.
