jon_ailabouni49 Years of Military Occupation in the Holy Land – Jon Ailabouni, presenter

For nearly half a century, Israel has maintained the military occupation of the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem. The millions of Palestinians who live in the occupied territories are subjected to routine human rights abuses including excessive use of force, arrest and imprisonment without charge or trial, ill-treatment and torture of detainees, forced evictions and home demolitions, and the denial of free speech, assembly, and movement. Jon Ailabouni, a Palestinian-American and Luther Adjunct Professor of Music, will share his family’s experience and his insights into the situation as well as the potential for peaceful resolution through the engagement of American citizens.
