Charmaine was for part of her life here in Pennsylvania. She has lived in Palestine for over a decade. She has written for the Economist, Janes Intelligence Digest, the San Francisco Chronicle and al-Jazeera.net.
To quote her website, http://www.apricklypear.com/:
As managing editor, Charmaine helped to found the bitterlemons publications bitterlemons.org and bitterlemons-international.org, and edited the compilation volume, The Best of Bitterlemons (2007). She has been interviewed as an analyst on radio and television, and has contributed to books on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, including The Struggle for Sovereignty: Palestine and Israel (1993-2005).
She speaks Arabic and Hebrew and has a particular interest in issues of religion.
Charmaine can be reached at email@example.com.
This half hour talk gives a true inside perspective on what is happening right now in Palestine. But, as she says, that is subject to change as everything is changing quite rapidly on a day-to-day basis there. Charmaine offers some valuable insights and some little known and often over-looked pieces of Palestinian history in this short talk.
