The Crises in the Gulf and Palestine

February 01, 2018

The recent decision by President Donald Trump to relocate the US embassy to Jerusalem amidst international condemnation has made the US the only country in the world to officially recognize Israel’s illegal, unilateral annexation of that city. At the same time, intensifying bloody repression in the Arab Gulf has included a horrific US-Saudi assault on Yemen, the encirclement of Qatar and Iran, and the consolidation of an absolutist regime in Saudi Arabia headed by Prince Salman. As a result, the need to assess the strategic dilemmas facing international solidarity activists, including the movement for Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions of Israel, has become even more pressing.

Steve Maher, Massarah Dawood, and Dan O’Hara will explain the situation in the Arab Gulf and Palestine/Israel, how major world powers are enabling these attacks on human rights, and how regular citizens can respond.
