On March 17th, Ali Abunimah, the co-founder and executive director of The Electronic Intifada, an award-winning online publication about Palestine and the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, addressed an audience at the University of Pittsburgh. He shared his views on the conflict in the region and about the possibility of a One State Solution. He began by reminding us that even today Palestinian civilians, including many children, continue to be killed by Israeli soldiers on a daily basis, citing some of the recent incidents that have not been aired on Western media. Among other things, he discussed in-depth the systematic Israeli policy to restrict the sovereignty of the Palestinian people and the complicity of the American government. And he echoed the call for the boycott, sanctions, and divestment against Israel, movements which have been gaining critical mass in Europe and growing in the US. Finally, Abunimah, closed with a brief explanation of the One State Solution followed by a Question and Answer session.
