The Crises in the Gulf and Palestine

The recent decision by President Donald Trump to relocate the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem amidst international condemnation has made the USA 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 U.S.-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 (BDS) of Israel, has become even more pressing.

Moderated by Umair Muhammad. Presentations by:

  • Stephen Maher is Assistant Editor of the... Socialist Register, and formerly worked editing the Journal of Palestine Studies. While living in the West Bank, he participated in the International Solidarity Movement resistance against the wall, settlements, and home demolitions.

  • Dan O’Hara is an organizer with Students Against Israeli Apartheid (SAIA), and also working on his PhD in Political Science at York University.
